Compliance Inspections
   All Jack Russell Terriers that are not registered with the South African Jack Russell Registry (SAJRR) are eligible for registration.
   As a condition to the registration of any Jack Russell Terrier with the SAJRR, the following criteria shall, among other criteria established from time to time by the Registry, be satisfactorily demonstrated by the terrier owner:
   The Jack Russell Terrier must comply with the Official Breed Standard issued by the SAJRR,
   An approved representative of the SAJRR will evaluate the Jack Russell Terrier in terms of the Official Breed Standard,
   The Jack Russell Terrier must be at least one (1) year old to qualify for registration,
   Standing photographs of the front and both side (in colour) must be submitted to the SAJRR. Names and birth date must be written on the back of the photograph with the date of the photograph taken,
   A Veterinary Report is required indicating that the Jack Russell Terrier is free of any diseases and any visible genetic defects.


Jack Russell Rescue
   It often happens that situations and conditions changes and we are forced, whether we like it or not, to find a new home for your best Jack Russell friend. The death of a person, financial crises or almost any other situation can put all of us into this very difficult situation. Unfortunately a large number of dogs and other pets are put down each year, as the owner does not know where to turn for help.
   The South African Jack Russell Registry is as concerned about this as the owner of the affected Jack Russell. At the Registry we keep a database of individuals wanting to help with the rescue of Jack Russells. We try to find a suitable and reliable new home for your best friend.
   Please contact us with your particulars if you are looking to place your Jack Russell for adoption with the Rescue.

   Specific guarantees or conditions should be specified in these contracts.
   These contracts are not prescribed but recommended since it will protect both the Jack Russell Breeder and the Purchaser.

   These sample contracts are only provided as an aide and do not necessarily contain all the legal provisions to protect the participating parties. If you would like to make sure that all your specific requirements are catered for we would recommend that you consult with an attorney in this regard.
