Patterdale Terriers are fearless dogs that are great in the ground hunters.
A lot of people compare patterdale terriers to pit bulls but really they are a much more game dog.
Pit bulls are used to fight other dogs and the same sized. Patterdale Terriers will take on wild animals while hunting that can be 100 times their size. They will also go underground and hunt in the dark closed areas of another animals burrow.
Patterdales terriers are usually on the smaller side ranging from 10lbs to 20lbs. The reason for the smaller size is that need to be able to fit underground in order to hunt their prey. The will hunt just about anything fox, ground hog, badger, raccoon, nutria, squirrels, and rats.
