    Patterdale Terrier |England|

    Patterdale Terrier |England|

    The Patterdale Terrier traces to the Lake District of northern England where the steep, rocky terrain and often harsh climate necessitated a tough, enduring breed. These dogs were used by fox hunters on foot and generally worked in pairs with a pack of Foxhounds; the Patterdale was used to access the foxes in tight crevices and holes and to follow the animals when they retreated down holes. The breed was developed from Fell Terrier types, bred chiefly by J. Bowman, an Ullswater hunter, Cyril Breay, Frank Buck, and Brian Nuttall, and has been described as being “tough as nails.” Although primarily a working terrier breed, Patterdales can also make good companions for active homes.
