PLUMMER TERRIER CLUB OF GREAT BRITAIN
Our general aims are to support and positively promote the Plummer Terrier by providing a professional platform for all owners and enthusiasts, whilst helping to care for the overall welfare of the breed. The PTCGB are proud of the working heritage of the Plummer Terrier and are happy to be working alongside the Working Plummer Terrier Register to actively support the working future of the breed.
PTCGB registered dogs are now recognised by the PTA and both clubs are working together to promote the breed and share resources when necessary. It is our belief that this is beneficial to the welfare of the Plummer Terrier and all involved with the breed.
PLUMMER TERRIER BREED HISTORY
A blend of Jack Russell Terrier, Fell Terrier, Beagle and Bull Terrier blood. Originally created by Brian Plummer to hunt and carry out the role usually associated with any working breed of terrier, the Plummer Terrier was conceived in the 1960s and with further development has now been bred to type for nearly 20 years.
Throughout the early development stages the aforementioned blood was combined with great success and eventually the Plummer Terrier was realised, leading to the formation of the Plummer Terrier Association in 1994. By the late nineties Brian decided that the breed needed a wider gene pool in order to reach it's maximum potential, Bull Terrier blood of known ancestry was sought and in 1998 the Plummer Terrier Club Of Great Britain was born.
Brian Plummer sadly passed away in the september of 2002 after a long hard struggle with cancer. Needless to say, those working with him continued as planned and after time realised the success they and he desired. Today's Plummer Terrier is as good as ever, many of the attributes laid out in the breed standard still intact, positively evolving and looking forward to the future.
