Rosethorn Terriers at the Show
4. Rosethorn Terriers at the Show  (April 26 & 27)
Rosethorn made a respectable showing at the Central Valley RTC UKC show last weekend. We took Champion Rosethorn Almighty Shogun, Rosethorn Cupid's Arrow, Rosethorn Pinot Noir, and my little four month old Rosethorn Charm'n Z Almighty.  In brief, Shogun got a major win "Champion of Champions" under Judge Larry Hanson. Arrow got "Winner of Winners" under Judge Daryl Turner. Pinot showed her little heart won her class but did not take a major win. My Rosethorn Charm'n Z Almighty won best puppy under Judge Tracey Kallas and Judge Daryl Turner, and notably got BEST IN SHOW PUPPY under Judge Daryl Turner.  A wonderful time was enjoyed by all, and thank you to the Judges who chose Rosethorn Terriers, and CVRTC for putting on a fun show. A special thank you to my friend Jennifer Ferguson of Indigo Rat Terriers Texas, who is owner of 9 mo. old female puppy Rosethorn Shogun IGO Sadie Mae of Rosethorn Terriers. Jennifer thank you for the wonderful pictures you took of Rosethorn Terriers and extra special thank you to her grand-daughter Nevaeh 8 years old, who was a great help with the dogs.  All Rosethorn Terriers are PLL clear, and we do have puppies, THE DERBY LITTER and THE LUV LITTER BOTH SIRED BY ROSETHORN CUPID'S ARROW, currently available . Enjoy!!

PLL Testing by OFFA.ORG
7. PLL Testing by OFFA.ORG 
Rosethorn Terriers has taken a strong stand against the breeding of Rat Terriers who are carriers, affected or unknown status of the genetic disease PLL. In support of this I am posting the PLL testing of my foundation dogs and on outbred studs that contributed to the current line of Rosethorn Terriers breeding dogs. The current dogs that contribute to Rosethorn Terriers are PLL clear by parentage.  In 10 generations I will once again pay to have my breeding dogs tested in order to validate the genetic Clear By Parentage status. All this information is available to anyone on the OFFA.org website under PLL testing. Thank you for your time and commitment to a future Rat Terrier Breed that is completely clear of this heart breaking disease.
