Was thinking about that but I haven't seen a "proper" one for years

you dont need a "proper one" if its just for sitting about and killing a couple of rats,

Don't need a dog but I believe it can have a good life on the farm and if I'm going to get a dog I'd rather have one that I actually want..

Best get a pup of which ever breed you choose, you can break it to stock and teach it yourself, don't be conned into paying big money either, even try a local dog shelter for pups. Good luck and good luck to the dog also

By proper Russell maybe you mean the short legged toyish sort of dog ? There seem to be 1000's of them still around if you look on the pets for sale kind of sites. They ask lots of money for not much dog though in my opinion. Thinking about getting yourself a working bred terrier may draw criticism on here as well though. Some will say that it would be a waste of a good dog unless you're hunting fox regularly. Some people live in an ideal world.

 

What you will get in a working bred terrier is a physical and mentally sound dog. Far more so than most other sorts that are around today. An intelligent animal that you can take anywhere, will be sound around people of any age, know how to behave in any situation and catch rats for fun. What you could also end up with though is a mad psycho dog from hell that appears not to have a brain, is a liability around people, and attempts to kill any other animal it comes across. A working bred terrier can be a difficult type of dog to own. Don't equate the small size with lack of effort/knowledge required from the owner. But I recommend them...or a whippet.

A little jack with some working history behind it I reckon. Real characters but then most terriers are so you got plenty of choice really

What's your idea of a proper Russel ? Some one might have the type you want if you describe it.
