Plummer terrier

Like the Russell's of the world now a plummer that grafts below ground is the exception rather then the rule. I had a nice looking dog. Strong enough and would get you by with fox work but he was inconsistent and average at best. If your wanting something to Bush the hedges and rat with. And maybe bolt the odd fox then they are grand little dogs. 

But make no mistake it won't do anything your average Russel won't do. 

A sweeping statement from experience of one dog.

Not at all Bill. Between myself and some lads at the time I had a few dogs in to try out on the ground work side of things and none of them impressed me. I had several of the lads that were meant to have good dogs at the time for days out and again none of them impressed me. Like I said they will get you by. And suit most lads that are only out once a week bushing a few hedges. 

Iv never slagged the breed off but I know full well that dog I had has gone over several bitches and no doubt been hailed as an amazing earth dog by the plummer fanatics. 

The truth is Bill he was average at best. 

Have you got any plummers now Bill? Because last I spoke to you you hadn't. 

Iv no doubt there is some out there that will graft. But as I said they are the exception. Rather then the rule.

The same can be said of every breed of working dog mate let alone terriers,if it were that easy every one would have a winner and jackers would be something we call crackers with jam on..I do get what you mean though but it's that's what most folk get them for and the dogs themselves don't get a chance to widen their horizon's but those that do do find there can be more to them than just bushing and ratting.

No mate, I don't keep terriers now. If I'd kept them on, I would have outcrossed, probably more than once. I know what you're saying, most are kept as general purpose dogs, but the good ones I've seen have been superb in the ground, some a bit on the hard side tbh. As fireman said, good and bad in all types.

I'm not totaly sure when it was done l think maybe the 90's and a bull was used,she had a bit of farmer boy and scotsman blood in her but was a pet and was untried,the real deal he wanted to use he wasn't allowed to use.Have a search of Legion bred dogs and that was the kennel that plummer used when he outcrossed, but again there's pures as such that are very much equal in every way build wise and it the outcross caused the hassle it did within the breed as many thought it wasn't needed..

Yeah would have been 90s. The bitch was served by vandal first but the mating didn't take for some reason. 

They used Curtis's dog mask on her next season. I was done with the Plummer scene by then, not that I got involved with the bullshit that went on lol.

There are some nice o/c dogs coming out of Ireland Bill, very strong. A few lads have split away to do their own thing, outcrossing to maintain working ability and health.

Hello in the near future I'm after a plummer pup but I don't want a snipey  small boned  pup I'm after a good strong bull head with good amount of bone do breeders still breed the good strong ones don't like the thin whippet  types I want it as all rounder it will live indoors 

The Plummer terrier died out around 18/19 yrs ago through folk pissing about with the breeding.
