NATIONAL RAT TERRIER REGISTRY----WHY US?
With all the Rat Terrier Registries out
there why do we need another. Because the NRTR is not just another Rat Terrier registry
and was formed because we didn't just want to be another registry. The
NRTR consists of members and associates who are Rat Terrier owners that
love them, hunt with them and have them as their best friend. We don't
just register dogs, we own them and live with them as part of our family.
There is no interest in quantity, we will sacrifice the market place. This
registry is run by members and is also a place to meet and share your thoughts
and ideas with other RT people.
The information that is provided will keep your Rat happy and long lived.
Our goal is to keep in tact the 3 qualities that are
essential to the Rat, and they are:
By keeping the Kennel Name our breeders will have pride and responsibility about their lines guaranteeing the quality you are looking for. We also do not allow changing the dogs given name once registered. This assures an accurate history. If you are on the NRTA breeders list you must offer the customer a written guarantee. Please see Breeder's Code of Ethics.
The NRTA is
strongly against hybrid dogs being registered as Rat Terriers. The NRTR
will continue to reject into it's registry any dog coming from any club,
organization or registry that had been involved in the cross of the Rat Terrier
and American Hairless Terrier and classifies them as a Rat Terrier.
Any dog registered with the United Kennel Club who's heritage has not been
previously recorded with the NRTR will be rejected.
Once you've owned or met a Rat Terrier you will feel
like you've missed out on something for a very long time. Let's not be
selfish, come join us and help share this great little dog with the world,
the dog of the millennium.
