Russell Terrier



    Brief Description: 

    The Russell Terrier is a strong, hardy, earth-working Terrier. He is full of life and moves with confidence that matches his keen expression. The breed's handy size, small flexible chest, nose, strong voice and fearless nature make it an excellent specimen to work vermin below ground. Its weatherproof coat may be smooth, broken or rough and is predominantly white with tan and/or black markings.

    Quote

    The ARTC Board of Directors has recommended the following Health Screenings to be the minimum health screenings for reputable breeding practices.  The ARTC has requested the following tests be required by Chic for the assignment of Chic numbers:

    Baer -  Normal hearing
    Cerf - Normal sight
    Petalla - Normal Petellas

    In the coming weeks the ARTC will be making a determination as to adding the Primary Lens Luxation (PLL) DNA test as well as the New Late Onset Ataxia DNA test to the requirements for a Chic number.
