Biewer Terrier Club of America (BTCA)
The Biewer Terrier Club of America, Inc. is a non-profit organization comprised of both National and International members. Its members consist of breeders, exhibitors and Biewer Terrier pet owners.
The diversity of its membership is an asset to the club with some members having opted to train their dogs in the fields of service and therapy work in addition to the show ring and for breeding programs. The rewards reaped by such work are insurmountable. Whether you are a breeder or a pet owner, the love of the Biewer Terrier is the common bond of this club.
Not only is it the responsibility of the parent club to preserve and protect it's breed, but it is also responsible for the education on the standard of the breed and to see to the health and welfare of the breed. With Mrs. Biewer joining the BTCA, Inc. in Nov. of 2007, it has been better able to educate the public about the history of the Biewer Terrier. Her knowledge of the early problems incurred in the development of the Biewer breed has been invaluable in our breeding programs.
The American Rare Breed Association has accepted the Biewer Terrier as a rare breed and acknowledges the BTCA, Inc. as the national parent club for the breed. The BTCA continues to make strong strides into gaining acceptance into the American Kennel Club and would like to acknowledge the countless hours and tireless efforts of its board members and club members to working towards achieving this goal.
