Membership Benefits and Purpose Statement

Purpose of the Texas Lacy Game Dog Association

Lacy owners possess a powerful combination of appreciation, respect, and affection for these amazing animals.  These individuals comprise the membership of the Association, and they are dedicated to persevering the breed, which almost disappeared when the Texas economy transitioned from farming and ranching to an industrialized economy.

Preservation of the Lacy Breed is accomplished through numerous avenues, including:

  • Providing information to potential, as well as existing, Lacy owners.
  • Providing a forum for all-Lacy events, competition, exhibitions, and seminars.
  • Joining with the Lacy Game Dog Registry in encouraging all breeders to work their dogs prior to breeding to ensure the excellent working abilities of the breed.
  • Publicizing the breed through a variety of print and electronic media
  • Responding to legislative or regulatory issues that could negatively impact the life-style of working dogs.
