Legion/plummer bred from a pet bull and it wasn't the first choice bull he used,the first choice dog was a real deal and plummer was told to do one when he asked to use it..

Rockey lee wasn't it.? Some cracking  looking patterdales bred down from same dog.

not read it fully had a flick through interesting story about a dog in that book but i cant be assed ..

Come on sid g, you can't leave it there. Well you can of course, your prerogative.

It's not a working terrier book so no exaggerated tales of super dogs that in reality may have been useless in there. Unless it in regard to the abilities of the terriers owned by John Russell himself but I doubt your that old?

The authors unashamedly justify the recognition of pure or crossbred Lakelands so would not have thought that it is in regard to "purity" of breeding.

I am intrigued as to what the interesting story is, genuinely... don't leave us hanging man! 🙂

I like the look of plummers, especially the early smaller type but i can't help thinking to myself why re-invent the wheel when Russells have filled the role?

Spot on, they (Plummers) are simply the 'creation' of an egotistical maniac to have his name 'live on' in a new type of terrier.

And it was far EASIER to sell this type as specialising at rats, than it would be to breed a new type of earth dog.

Prove me wrong...? 😉
