New Dog- Border Patterdale.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I've reserved a pup who I'll be collecting in two weeks time at 8 1/2 weeks. She's the strongest looking out of the litter first cross border over Patterdale. Dad is a ratting dog and mum has seen work but is mainly a pet but was bred from workers.

I want the bitch mainly for ratting and a bit of bushing as I've never done any digging work. I know a lot of people with working dogs but no digging men so I've never been exposed to it.

Does anyone have any pictures or information on this breed?

What size do they tend to get to? The one I will be getting is one of the largest in the litter, think she's biggest tbh.

How much would a locator collar be and where could I get one mate? I plan to mainly do ratting and bushing but understand she could run to ground.

I'll upload a few pictures when I get her and see what everyone thinks.

Thanks for the replies.

These are very similar to border lakies I had back in the 80's and 90's, I loved this cross, so much so that I am going to cross my black and tan fell/lakie with my mates border dog, he is very similar to logunmk2's dog above but all tan, well proportioned and with a strong head, they both have good noses and work on top very well.

Seems to be a good cross from what everyone is saying. I like the sound of ut very much.

 

Gonna have to invest in a shovel though and check round for fox in the area I guess.

Looking forward to it though.
