July 9th, 2018 the AKC board approved the Biewer Terrier for advancement to the Miscellaneous class. The Biewer Terrier will officially move into Miscellaneous on July 3rd, 2019. This is a huge accomplishment for the breed and for the BTCA, Inc.
The new 4.0 has 6 individual tests in which to evaluate the dog, giving us more information to make a better analysis of whether we have a purebred or not. We take into consideration each test result and evaluate a dogs purity based on those results. Your dog may show inconclusive on one test and still be a purebred dog.

PRA testing is not included in the standard Health Test. To get the needed test for Biewer Terriers you will have to use the information sheet for "add on testing". This allows you to request our Biewer Terriers' PRCD-PRA, with the separate fee of $25.00. You do not need to send in additional swabs. Please let the Health Committee know if anyone has any problems getting the test done. The specific PRCD-PRA testing for Biewers is indeed not included in the base panel so other breeds who do not need it, are not paying the licensing fee for it which is a high cost single test.
