I can understand why people would not want enter terriers in "rock earths" but, paradoxically, the most popular types of working terrier around today were developed, originally,  to work in those places.

Not really got any pics of them terriers. They’re my mates he’s an old chap been breading them nearly 60 year nothing special just always bred of dogs that worked how they wanted them to. You’d struggle to pick a digging dog out of the lot of em. The black an tan in the picture isn’t amounting to much to be honest 

Defo be an interesting weekend out, it’s amazing the places those wee terriers go to to get a job done. The height of gameness is defo the working earth terrier those are proper warriors.

No quarry. With how dodgy the hole was we didn’t spend any time looking. The pile had been open 2 night while digging so it could have come then and we left it open over night after we got the bitch so it could come before we backfilled. Seem to remember being able to smell it strongly half way up the dig on the second day but not the third

So the whole point of that was what...

Ignore the negative comments Fair play to the lads involved they stuck it out to the end to get the terrier back and done everything they had in there power to rescue the terrier risking there own lives in the process. They got the terrier back after 3 days that in itself is a result
