Early Kerry Blue Litter in the 20's.jpg

Same litter would be split into Kerry Blue, Wheaton and Irish, the B&T could pass as Irish back then. The RED coat came later.

Kerry Blue/ Wheaton were trialled up to the 60's. and some later but the working numbers were not being produced.

The Staffs became the dog of choice. (Love the way the staff in the centre is waiting his chance to cling that Kerry Blue.)

Never saw those first 3 pics before p3d, by the looks of them you could see how the Irish terrier and Kerry Blue may well have played their part in the creation of the Lakeland/Fell/Patterdale..

From 1892 to his death Tommy had a mixture of all types of terriers. White, Border/ lakey types, smooth/Rough.

Like any huntsman, Good working terriers are hard to come by, back then and now. Use what works.

P3D, what year (roughly) do you think the first black terriers, as we know them today, appeared?

RH,

You can find photos of smooth black terriers back 100 years, but there is no mention of a line of smooth coated dogs as we see them today before the 70's

Hugh-Lowther-with-dogs-Carlton-House-Terrace1.jpg.82d5a4e8d36024ffa63b00365cd55cc8.jpg

All of the photographs of working terriers appeared to be Fell/Lakey/Border type (Red, B&T, Black, White) or Russell/Fox/Sealyham type. (White with hound type markings).

The hunting writers of the time (pre 60's) mention every line and type, but I have never seen any mention of a smooth coloured line of working terriers.

Dogs like Smithy and Nigger seem to have come along and were bred to hundreds of bitches, then the black smooth line took off. 1970?

I have in front of me a list of terriers entered in a working trial in the 80's in Cork Ireland, there are all of the working types you could think of, but no patterdale or Smooth black dog. I hunted back then with men who had contacts in the UK. They brought over many types. I never saw a smooth black dog back then. Do you think if there was a line of great smooth black dogs available that they would not have tried them.

Breay and Buck did not breed that line, they outcrossed too often to lock in any defined type. it was someone after them. JMO

Is that dog on the left Smooth enough, compared to the other 4 fell types?

Did the smooth coat come from a dog like this crossed with a fell?

Don't want to go off in a tangent from B'11s post of old photos.
