The PTCGB was set up by Brian Plummer some twenty years ago and the clubs mission statement has remained the same. It states the following.
The clubs general aims are to preserve, protect and promote the Plummer terrier by providing support and a professional platform for all owners and enthusiasts, whilst helping to care for the overall health and welfare of the breed.
This has included the rehoming of Plummer terriers that for one reason or another required our help. This has mainly been carried out by our club secretary who has many contacts in the dog rescue world and has been done at no cost to the club. We have done this even though the majority of the dogs were not registered with this club or had no documentation to prove linage.
Whilst we have been doing this the EPTS had offered a Plummer terrier rehome and sale site which was supposed to provide similar support for the breed. It has now come to our attention that as from the first October 2018 they will no longer provide this service for any Plummer terrier that is registered with the PTCGB. (Not that many of our dogs require rehoming).
With this in mind the PTCGB have decided to make all owners of a Plummer terrier aware that this club puts the interest of the breed foremost in our thoughts and before any political point scoring gimmick that does nothing but harm the breed.
To this end we would inform all owners of a Plummer terrier that the  PTCGB will continue to provide not only a rehome service but also a platform to inform people of any Plummer terrier that may be lost or found irrespective of registration.
Anyone wishing to use this service should contact the club via one of our Facebook pages or email us at the following address,


The club has been working with Dr Tom Lewis, geneticist with the Animal Health Trust and Dr Alison Ruhe, geneticist with Embarkvet in the USA. We have based our plans on the advice given to the club by these experts and have negotiated a club discount price for the Embark DNA health tests which looks at over 200 conditions that may affect the breed. Due to the complexities involved in individuals registering dogs with Embark and to obtain the best price for our members the PTCGB has agreed to purchase the test kits directly as a club, and to distribute them to owners at cost. The PTCGB have also agreed that the cost of shipping from the USA to the UK will be borne by the club. As a further gesture of goodwill this test will be available to any owner of a Plummer terrier irrespective of club membership. Those owners who wish to participate must supply a copy of their dogs Plummer terrier pedigree, issued by the breeder and agree that the PTCGB may retain a copy of the results. This is needed so that we may gather as much information as possible and will be used to provide future breeders with accurate advice. Once your application is approved you will be asked to make payment, to the PTCGB, and the test kit will be forwarded which you will then return to Embark. Test results will then be posted to owners.  Participants can be assured that any information provided will not be shared with a third party unless prior authority is given by the owner. Readers will appreciate that due to Corvid-19 there may be difficulties with the supply from the USA, however we hope that things will improve over the coming months. Those people who are interested in participating and therefore helping the breed should indicate your interest by email address mailto:contactus@plummerterrier.comor by joining our Facebook page where updates will also be available.

Stay safe.
