my mother had a little fox terrier about 20 years ago she certainly had the instinct and drive. and once disapeared dowwn a cundy drain and stayed wwith it for a couple of hours. :icon_eek: i was glad to get her out as i neww her muzzle under the furnishings was thin long and very weak not capable of taking a lot of damage. just another wasted breed imo. i agree there are still some very good lines of russell left. they may be mixed bred but so where the old bent legged ones. :thumbs:

Some hunters in some countries are working to make this breed is still a working breed, it's very hard but still keep trying

25+ years ago I dug with a lad who had two Smooth Fox terriers, good dogs, good finders, both would stay all day, the dog didn't mind a bit of stick either. Both were very good ratters too, the bitch being one of the best i've seen, one of only two dogs i've seen that would swim underwater to catch their rat, like a fecking Otter.

 

As for those old bent legged white dogs (back then they were Russells but is that still the case...?), i've dug to some crackers and looking back, this type always seemed to be kept by fellas who only had the one dog. I miss this type, suppose it reminds me of my youth.. ;)

i looked online round 2 year ago and litters were £600-700.

 

too much coin to take a gamble with really

 

which is whats happened to a few terrier breeds that only get to grace some old dears houses now.

i have seen a collie/greyhound dive for a rat aswell,and the same dog tried to drown a fox terrier in a stream once in a fight.

Is it a case of the only reasonable working fox terrier blood left is on the continent? I've noticed the posts by continental europeans often have a fox terrier or two knocking about with a bloody nose...
