The Patterdale Terrier is a derivative of the Fell Terrier. Fittingly, the Patterdale, is named after the parish where it originated. The breed is used for vermin control and works for a living in the rural country-side of England. Patterdales are also used extensively in the United States for "going to ground" where the object is to literally enter the underground burrow in the pursuit of its prey (anything from rats, groundhogs, nutria, a badger, or fox). The robust and game breed frequently shows-off its ability to persist in the face of danger and extreme difficulty. When not at work, Patterdales make excellent companions. They are easy to house train, loyal, and extremely intelligent.
