  • There is no restriction to the number of Black and Tans that may be inducted each year.
  • Conformation Hall - Grandfathering Clause: For those dogs who have passed away prior to April 22, 1992, whose conformation accomplishments for their time are felt by someone to be of importance to the breed, their “resume” should be sent to the Secretary to be distributed to the Board with as much documentation as possible for consideration.
  • Performance Hall – Grandfathering Clause: For those dogs who have passed away prior to June 1, 2002, whose performance accomplishments for their time are felt by someone to be of importance to the breed, their “resume” should be sent to the Secretary to be distributed to the Board with as much documentation as possible for consideration
  • For those dogs who have passed away prior to April 22, 1992, whose accomplishments for their time are felt by someone to be of importance to the breed, their "resume" should be sent to the Secretary to be distributed to the Board with as much documentation as possible for consideration.
  • As it is impossible to judge the Black and Tans of yesterday on today's standards, it was felt by the Hall of Fame committee, and many club members who were polled, that submitting a resume on each individual Black and Tan would be the most efficient way to honor those who opened the door for today's Black and Tans.

Versatility Hall of Fame
This hall requires points in conformation AND performance. Requirements are as follows:

Versatility Hall accepted by Officers and Board of Directors 11/11/2005, revised 5/2014
