We have provided a detailed explanation of the acceptable results for the Wisdom Panel 4.0 test. 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. Please visit our "Mars Test Results Explained Page" for a detailed explanation.
The Biewer Terrier Club of America has been named the parent club for the Biewer Terrier by the AKC. As the Biewer Terrier is gaining recognition World Wide as a breed of its own, the BTCA continues to assist those countries needing help in obtaining recognition with their respective kennel clubs. You can register your purebred Biewer Terrier with AKC/FSS, UKC and BTRA in the United States. We are looking forward to developing a strong, healthy foundation for the Biewer Terrier.

Welcome to the Biewer Terrier Club of America
Welcome to the webside of the AKC/FSS affiliate club for the Biewer Terrier. As the foundation club to the Biewer Terrier, the BTCA represents breeders and pet owners throughout the United States and around the World. The dedication and devotion of the members to adhere to the strict guidelines it takes to develop a new breed are to be commended. It has not been an easy road, but the rewards have been monumental, and whether you are a breeder or a pet owner, the love of the Biewer Terrier is the common bond of this club.
We will be taking you through the life of the Biewer Terrier, beginning in Germany with the Biewer Yorkshire Terrier a la Pom Pon, and ending in America with the Biewer Terrier. The BTCA was formed to educate the general public and breeders alike about the Biewer Terrier. We are also mindful about keeping America updated on the ever developing process a new breed goes through on its journey to full recognition as a purebred dog.
"Contacts and Links" will take you to the contact information for the board and committee members, as well as other related links that you may fine of interest. We hope we have covered everything, but if you have any questions, feel free to contact any one of the board members at any time.
Enjoy your visit and we hope you will go away with a better understanding of this rare, captivating breed, the Biewer Terrier. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance, if you are thinking about breeding, adding a new family member or just wanting to learn more about this endearing breed.
The decision by the BTCA to allow BTRA to register the Chocolate
and Gold Biewer Terriers came after much consideration and tests
results received by BTRA. The BTCA would like to state that the Biewer Terrier is still a breed in development and the more testing that modern science makes available to breeders, the more we learn about our respective breeds.
Although the Biewer Terrier may carry a brown gene, or a yellow gene, the Biewer Terrier is a black, white and tan(gold) dog and the standard that we are trying to achieve.
The chocolate/liver colored dog is becoming more popular and there are those that want to develop it into an acceptable color. This will have to be done properly and we hope that the breeders that are trying to develop that style will be responsible and do it correctly.
We are here to help anyone interested in our breed and we hope you will contact us with any questions you may have. The Board is always willing to assist anyone interested in the Biewer Terrier.
