The American Rare Breed Association promotes and educates the public on rare breeds in the US. In 2003 they accepted the Registry from the NOW Nation Russell Terrier Foundation Club and called the breed Russell Terrier. In addition to public awareness and education, ARBA also maintains a rare breed registry and hosts conformation shows and seminars. You will find many of the Russell Terrier Foundation bloodlines in ARBA. These bloodlines are those of the Old English Russell's before cross-breeding of the Parson Russell Terrier and Fox Terrier.
The oldest documeted lines in the United States can be found in ARBA such as
Star Valley, Elk Creek, Tall Trees, Pecan Grove, Westly, and Hi Hills. ARBA will not accept litter registrations from cross-bred dogs.
Star Valley was the first to have ARBA Champions and Best in Show Wins.
November 2009, A Star Valley Bred Dog received the FIRST American Rare Breed Association MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIP in the USA for the RUSSELL TERRIER
