    The Irish, border, lakey, beddy. They all probably decent from some cross bred type used in both the north and Ireland and they changed over time when people bred for purpose or show. I wouldn’t say no dog originated from one place, just like the patterdale, as there is always more than one person breeding a type at the same time. But your right, Whitehaven was a big port at one time and it would have been a place where plenty travelled through bringing and taking dogs with them.

    I was brought up in the north of England and most of the black dogs around where big scruffy rough coated dogs, everyone called them patterdales and that’s what I’ve always called them. I suppose it’s subjective though and depends on what you’d picture a patterdale to look like.

    Some difference in the head shape of those bedlingtons to today’s type, the dogs in the picture are well put together, near border like

    A black dog doesn’t need a smooth coat to be a patterdale.

    Jibb or more time

    Wrong time of year to start a pup. Every earth is kicked out and full of scent and going out this time of year will have you doubting your dog.
