Rejected petition Prevent the Kennel Club from setting breed standards for Jack Russell Terriers

For over 100 years the Kennel Club has refused to recognise the Jack Russell Terrier as a pedigree breed. Now it has decided to change this policy.
We feel that setting breed standards for such a healthy breed will lead to interbreeding and destroy the character of the Jack Russell Terier.
