    Patterdale Terriers: Who Owns One?

    These little feisty guys and gals have always piqued my interest. I thought I remembered someone here has one (or some.) What can you guys tell me about them that I can't already read online? lol

    Yep. I have a crazy, little bitch.:D
    Thanks Blau. BTW, I think Kainda's breeder had a litter last month. She is located in Clermont, Florida.

    Well, I *think* I have a Patterdale! She's a rescue so not totally sure obviously. She is bigger than average weighing in at 20 pounds but she came into rescue in California and I read that they breed them somewhat bigger on the west coast of the US as they use them to hunt larger game.

    She's a brat. Spends her days begging, hunting around on the floor for anything she might be able to eat and stealing bunny poo or shaking up her toys non stop and growling as loud as she can {that's the fun part! } or giving the other dogs the biz or doing zoomies and lauching off those in her way. She definitley does not have that rock solid temperament that my bull and terriers do. She's really vocal and won't hesitate to tell you if she's not comfortable with something. If I let her, she'd probably resource guard me as she's become really attatched to me for some reason and doesn't like other people handling her. :rolleyes: She has fear aggression issues with new people coming to the house. She's screams her head off if you stop walking her or if she sees animals outside. Ya... she's a real riot. :rolleyes:

    Here's some pictures of our little nighmare which I'm thinkin' of changing her name to.



    She LOVES the treadmill, spring pole and flirt pole which is cool...



    When she isn't being a total $#@!hat, she is a pretty sweet girl. :)



    VERY different than owning a bull and terrier though. She's gotten away with stuff I would have put my other dogs down for. Seriously....

    Ya.... well that's what I get for loving crazy dogs..... a houseful of crazy dogs! Don't get me wrong. 99.9% of the time, she's a hoot and a total sweetie. She definitley has some kinks we need to work out though. :eek:

    For purposes solely for energy level comparison: would you describe them as JRT/PB types? lol

    Now that I know about Patterdales (or the existence of at least!) I'm pretty certain someone dumped a Patterdale at Cobb County Animal Control that a friend of mine (who has since moved) adopted. This PT HATED children. When she saw one, she'd go ballistic (friend has no children and is a responsible dog owner.) This little dog was lean athletic muscle, had a docked tail, and was very energetic. She was also HIGHLY intelligent.

    Cobb County had her listed as a "Min Pin" (based on her tail?) and before I had known about PTs, I said to my friend, "who would go through the time and effort to have the tail docked off their puppy unless it was a BYBer trying to sell it as a purebred MinPin as a puppy."

    Well, I haven't been around any JR's really to compare energy levels but Roxy is pretty high energy. I can walk her for an hour and she'll not even seem like she went for a walk. She's a riot to walk though because she pulls like a pit bull but she's so much easier to hold on to! And man..... if you stop at a stop light or something, she SCREAMS and flails and lunges to keep going. Her energy kinda comes in fits and starts. She'll go at the spring pole full on like she's having a spring pole seizure, make a ton of noise for about 20 seconds then she'll wander off and eat gr$#@!. It's like she gets bursts of crazy.

    She is a very smart girl and very submissive. She definitley seems pretty handler sensitive and kinda attatches to one person. As far as the kids, she likes them and gives them tons of kisses, likes playing fetch and tug with them but she gets uncomfortable if they try to pick her up to move her or something so she interacts with them much better with them using verbal commands. I don't think she likes to be treated like a lap dog or picked up, unless it's me doing it. She wants to be treated like a BIG DOG! lol She didn't react well to my friends kid that was visiting though. She's much more comfortable with people out and about than she is meeting them at the house but that could be a socialization issue. Once she makes friends with someone, she's fine with them after that. Well, fine in a Roxy way.

    It's been really different for the kids, and I think a really good learning experience to expand their dog handling skills, as they are SO used to dogs that you can do ANYTHING with. You don't have to ''think'' when interacting with the bull and terriers as they just accept whatever you do, where with Roxy... for instance.... you can't just reach down and grab her toy without her trying to guard it but if you tell her to leave it she'll happily up it to you. Daemon said that he has gained a whole new appreciation for the bull and terriers since meeting Roxy. I think the thing with Roxy is that she is VERY vocal, where say if the bull and terriers were uncomfortable, they show it more with submissive body language, where Roxy will make a whole host of odd noises to display her displeasure. Kinda freaked me out at first but I think I'm getting used to it.

    She's DEFINITLEY food and toy motivated which is good. :)

    I had actually wondered if Roxy maybe had some Manchester Terrier in her as she has a hint of brown on her checks but I poked around and asked some Patterdale folk and they said that is common (called bronzing) and they definitley thought she was a Patterdale. I was thinking the same type of thing with her tail but more like ''who would pay to dock the tail of a mutt so maybe she is purebred?'' lol

    My Patterdale (like all of my other terriers) absolutely adores people. People of every age, shape and size, whether she knows them or not are subject to her pushing herself on them. If she is in a crate, she throws herself against the bars and scruffles on them like a psycho cat.
    She loves to hunt, and most anything is fair game (cats, small dogs, squirrels, rats, mice, birds, fox, opossum, raccoons, hogs, etc.). She does fine with larger dogs, as long as they don't start $#@! or act disrespectful to her.
    She is highly food motivated, loves to flirt pole and spring pole, is doing awesome in agility, and enjoys weight pull. She is crazy on the race track and after only 6 races (and winning "fastest over-all" in all of them) she is ranked #2 in UKC Terrier Racing in her division. I am hoping to send her to Premier next year. She also loves gtg.
    Patterdales are athletic, compact, sturdy, intelligent, affectionate, high drive, and trainable but sometimes stubborn. They can be very high energy, but seem to understand when they are working and how to relax at home. She is calmer in the house than my JRTs.
    My Patterdale is 12" at the shoulder and weighs about 10lbs. Here are some pictures of her.
