|Biewer Terrier Registry Information|
The Biewer Terrier Registry of America was established by the founding officers of the BTCA to maintain a reliable, accurate data base for the verification and registration of purebred Biewer Terrier dogs and puppies in America. In order to have and maintain a respectable registry, free of political complications we have opted to use an established independent firm to hold and maintain all records and pedigrees.
We are passionate about building a solid foundation for the advancement and betterment of the Biewer Terrier. For this reason all breeders submitting an application to BTRA for registration of their Biewer Terrier shall be deemed thereby to have read and agreed to be bound by the BTCA code of ethics. This code of conduct will be used to evaluate a person's right to register their dogs/puppies with BTRA. Although it is not a requirement to be a member of the BTCA to register your dogs, we are welcoming of all breeders that are interested in the betterment of the Biewer Terrier.
Our goal is to give our breeders better tools to help them create superior Biewer Terrier Puppies.... the best in health, temperament, structure, and overall quality. Achieving this goal will result in those wishing to add a Biewer Terrier to their lives, having a greater chance of receiving a Biewer Terrier Puppy that will live to be a ripe old age and free from long term health issues from any of our top quality BTRA Biewer Terrier Breeders. For more in information please visit the the Biewer Terrier Registry of America website.
If you do not have a BTRA registered Biewer and wish to register with BTRA, you will have to submit to the following guidelines to see if your dog is a purebred Biewer Terrier. Because of the registering of splitters and mix breeds by various registries, plus the lack of DNA profiling, we have had to require a testing procedure to protect the integrity and purity of the purebred Biewer Terrier.
All non-BTRA registered dogs must undergo the Wisdom Panel cheek swab test 4.0 for registration consideration. This test can only be purchased at the Wisdom Panel website: https://www.wisdompanel.com/products/product-comparison/ We would like to recommend doing the health testing at the same time you do the breed detection as you will receive a discount for ordering the two together. This new test also provides a coat color analysis, so it is no longer necessary to do one with DDC.
There are six components to the test; 1)Ancestry Chart, 2)Single breed PCA test, 3)All breed PCA test, 4)Next closest breed PCA test, 5)Pairwise overall test, 6)Homozygosity. You are allowed 2 "inconclusive" findings out of the 6 and will still be a purebred Biewer Terrier. Make sure you have your results reviewed before dismissing your new dog. If you have results that state your dog is 25% or 37% yorkie it may still pass. A dog that is 50% Biewer Terrier and 50% Yorkie or any breed, will fail and not be allowed registration.
Once you have certified that you have a purebred “Biewer Terrier” you will need to get a DNA profile on your dog. To order your DNA profile test, click on the following link: https://vetdnacenter.com/dna-tests/canine-dna-testing/canine-dna-profiling/
Once receive your Wisdom Panel results and you meet the qualifications of the BTCA, stating you have a “Biewer Terrier” you must get a DNA profile done with DDC. Click here "DDC" to go directly to the DDC site. You will need to have a DNA profile done as we require DNA profiling on all breeding dogs. Having a DNA profile is also a great identifier in case you lose your dog and need to have a positive form of identification.
DDC phone# is 1-800-625-0874
