Interested in Listing a Litter?

Litter

If you are interested in listing a litter then the two documents below should be helpful.  The first provides the requirements and information you will need to list a litter on the ABTC website.  The second provides access to the ABTC breeder pledge.  The ABTC requires you read and become familiar with these documents prior to listing a litter.  You can find these documents on the website via the links below, and return to this page using your browser's back button.

This service is available to regular members to list their litters that meet the requirements stated in the requirements page. Members may list a litter starting at the time the litter is bred. If a litter is listed at the time of the breeding, the expected due date of the litter is required. Further, the member must contact the breeder online listing administrator when the litter is born to provide the actual date of birth, the number of male and female puppies in the litter and the number of each that is available.

If you have any questions please contact:

After reading the documents you may start the litter listing processing by completing the form below:

Find a Puppy?

Terv pup in grass smallSo, you are interested in a Belgian Tervuren puppy. The American Belgian Tervuren Club can help provide information regarding upcoming litters. There are two articles the American Belgian Tervuren Club recommends you read prior to looking for a tervuren puppy via a short form.

ABTC Breeder Pledge

  1. I recognize that genetic disease is a longstanding fact in the Belgian Tervuren breed. Only through open, honest communication and sharing of accurate information can I, as a breeder and guardian of my breed, help to improve overall genetic health and significantly reduce the incidence of genetic disease in the breed I love.
  2. I support the open disclosure of all health issues that affect the Belgian Tervuren, utilizing publicly accessible canine health registries in the country of my residence whenever possible.
  3. I openly and publicly disclose all information in my possession about health issues that have been produced by my dogs and by dogs from my breeding, and also those health issues where a significant risk factor may exist.
  4. If I receive information about a new genetic condition in connection with my dogs or my breeding, I work to the best of my ability to notify the purchasers/owners of dogs that are related to the dog with the new condition.
  5. I support and assist other breeders in their disclosure efforts.
  6. I do not speak ill of any breeder or breeding program that has produced an affected Belgian Tervuren.
  7. I compassionately support and assist owners of affected dogs in gathering information on the genetic diseases that have stricken their dogs.
  8. I support research studies for genetic diseases in Belgian Tervuren, submitting biological samples from dogs in my kennel or of my breeding when they are available and applicable for the study. I encourage others to do the same.
  9. I have my dogs screened for genetic diseases by veterinarians with the proper certification, as recommended on the American Belgian Tervuren Club’s website. I support the recording of test results in open registries, and as they become available to me I post the results. As new genetic tests for Belgian Tervuren become available, I submit my breeding stock for those tests.

The Breeder Pledge was adapted with permission from “10-Steps to a Healthier Australian Shepherd Breed”.  10 Steps is a program of the Australian Shepherd Health and Genetics Institute (ASHGI).  Please visit the ASHGI website for more information.
