Description: The Patterdale Terrier is found primarily in the Lake District and in Yorkshire where it is used to hunt rat, fox and rabbit and is brd more for its working appearance than its appearance. The Patterdale is a hard-bitten terrier, willing to work and reputed to be quiet both indoors and out. Although the Patterdale Terrier's small size could qualify him as a toy dog, his abilities and gameness deems him as a solid terrier; his determination and toughness demand his inclusion in the mastiff group. They are game and tough when hunting. Hunters often take three or four dogs with them on an outing. Patterdales are attractive as pets, but prospective buyers should be aware that while these dogs may enjoy sitting in a lap, they are not “lap dogs” – they are dogs that require training and regular and consistent exercise to maintain their temperament and to occupy their minds.

Country of Origin: Great Britain
At one time, different strains of Terrier existed in each isolated village in the north of England. Breeding to Kennel Club standards reduced this great variety, but some remote region's unrecognized breeds continued to flourish. The Patterdale is one of these breeds. Virtually unknown outside Great Britain, this breed is generally found in Great Britain's Lake District and in Yorkshire. The name Patterdale was chosen after the village in Cumbria, where the dogs were common. The Patterdale was first brought to the USA in 1978. In the USA the dogs hunt anything with fur from woodchuck (groundhog), fox, raccoon and even badger.
