Welcome To The Lucas Terrier Club Of America

Our Club

 

The Lucas Terrier Club of America is dedicated to the promotion, preservation and

propagation of the Lucas terrier in the United States and Canada.  Founded in 2006,  

it is the oldest and only official Lucas terrier breed club in North America.

 

Origins Of The Breed

 

The Lucas terrier is a small, rare, unexagerated British terrier developed in the late 

1940's by Sir Jocelyn Lucas. Sir Jocelyn created his delightful namesakes by crossing the smaller, working Sealyhams that he favored with Norfolk terriers. The inspiration for the Lucas was born from his dislike of exagerated show Sealyhams and their influence on the breed. The result was an enchanting, low maintence, go-anywhere, do-anything, long-lived companion.

 

Authentic 'Original' Lucas Terriers

 

Every Lucas terrier in the LTCA's breeding progam can be directly linked to Sir Jocelyn's kennels. We follow his 'recipe' exactly. When you purchase a Lucas terrier from an LTCA member in good standing, with an LTCA stamped pedigree, you can rest assured you are purchasing a true, 'original' Lucas terrier.

Health - Temperment - Conformation

 

Paying meticulous attention to health, temperment and conformation are essential to any good breeding program. Health scourges like Primary Lens Luxation (PLL), Intervertebral Disc Disease IVDD) and Lion Jaw, that have plagued some Lucas populations are unknown on our shores. Through appropriate testing and due diligence, we are determined to keep it that way.

Connecting Around The Globe


To stay connected, the LTCA 'meets' through Facebook, E-newsletters and Twitter.  Sir Jocelyn Lucas may have had the 'old-fashioned' Sealyham in mind when he created the Lucas, but there is nothing old fashioned about the way the LTCA embraces the latest in science and technology guiding the breed into the future. All who love the Lucas (or would love to learn more about the Lucas) from every corner of the globe are welcome to join.
