Bio:
"JERRY" IS A PURE BREED. GERMAN HUNT TERRIER (DJT) HE HAS AN EXCELLENT PEDIGREE CONFIRMED/DOCUMENTED BY THE "SKG/SCS" THIS BREED IS VERY RARE IN USA. GERMAN HUNT TERRIERS ARE WORKING DOGS NOT NECESSARY "PETS".... EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GREAT PALS AND EXCELLENT FAMILY DOGS..... IF PROPERLY HANDLED ! GERMAN HUNT TERRIER IS HIGHLY INTELLIGENT AND AFFABLE WITH ITS MASTER AN HUNTERS. CONSIDERING ITS DETERMINATION TO WORK, COMBUSTIBLE ENERGY, THE BREED SHOULD NOT BE SOLD STRICTLY AS A PET, THOUGH THEY ARE TOTALLY PEOPLE FRIENDLY. THE GERMAN HUNT TERRIER IS BRED TO BE A HUNTING AND SPORTING DOG. GERMAN HUNT TERRIERS POSSESS A SPIRIT OF LIVELINESS AND SPEED AT WORK, YET ARE REGAL AT REST. "ALERT", "ATHLETIC" AND "ACTIVE" DESCRIBES THE AMBIENCE OF THE GERMAN HUNT TERRIER. A BIT OF FIRE IS ALWAYS EVIDENT IN ITS EXPRESSION. A CLEVER HUNTER, UNRELENTING ROBUST AND UNAFRAID OF THE MOST FORMIDABLE WILD AND VERY INTENT IN THE PURSUIT OF SUCH GAME. DASH, GAMENESS AND PLUCK ARE ALL DESCRIPTIVE OF A PROPERLY BRED GERMAN HUNT TERRIER. THE GERMAN HUNT TERRIER, BREDS HUNTERS OVER ITS EXISTENCE, HAS MAINTAINED THE FEARLESS CHARACTERISTICS OF EARLY DAY DEN TERRIERS. HISTORY DESCENDED FROM ENGLISH TERRIERS, THE GERMAN HUNT TERRIER WAS SELECTIVELY BRED IN GERMANY IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY. THE BREED IS THOUGHT TO BE THE RESULT OF CROSSES BETWEEN THE FOX TERRIER, THE WELSH TERRIER AND THE OLD ENGLISH TERRIER. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT DACHSHUND AND PINSCHER BLOOD WAS ALSO INTRODUCED. THIS REMARKABLE HUNTER IS CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST TERRIERS (UNEARTHING FOX AND BADGER). HE ALSO HUNTS BOAR AND HARE IN SMALL PACKS, RETRIEVES SMALL LAND OR WATER GAME, AND IS AN EXCELLENT SCENTHOUND. IN GERMANY, SPECIMENS OF THIS BREED MUST PASS WORKING TESTS PRIOR TO BEING GRANTED CLUB APPROVAL TO REPRODUCE. WITH THE BREED CLUB REFUSING TO REGISTER OFFSPRING OF NON-WORKING PARENTS, CASUAL FANCIERS ARE DISCOURAGED TO INSURE MAINTENANCE OF WORKING QUALITIES. THE JAGDTER-RIER IS ONLY RARELY EXHIBITED. SOME SPECIMENS WERE BROUGHT TO THE USA IN THE 1950S. FOR A TIME, A BREED CLUB WAS IN EXIS-TENCEJ BUT INTEREST DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE BEEN MAINTAINED. THE TAIL IS USUALLY DOCKED TO ABOUT HALF THE ORIGINAL LENGTH, BUT THE EARS ARE LEFT INTACT TO TIP FORWARD. AT THIS TIME, ONLY THE ROUGH COAT IS ACCEPTABLE. TEMPERAMENT THOUGH THE JAGDTERRIER IS MAINLY A HUNTING DOG, MANY HAVE FOUND HIM TO BE A REAL PAL IN THE HOME. HIS SIZE PERMITS KEEPING HIM IN THE CITY, WHICH IS OF COURSE A NECESSITY TO SOME. HE IS A VERY ACTIVE DOG HOWEVER, AND THEREFORE NEEDS A GOOD DEAL OF EXERCISE. THIS CAN BE OF BENEFIT TO THE OWNER AS WELL, IN THAT IT ENCOURAGES HIM, WITH HIS JAGDTERRIER, TO ENJOY THE HEALTHFULNESS AND RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS IN ALL SEASONS. THE HARDY JAGDTERRIER MISTRUTS STRANGERS, AND HE IS THE FIRST TO WARN OF THE APPROACH OF SUCH. IF THE NEED SHOULD ARISE HE IS THE FIRST TO PROTECT HIS FAMILY, RISKING HIS LIFE IF NECESSARY. AS SPANKY AS HE IS IN THE FIELD THOUGH, HE IS A DEVOTED HOUSE PET-A PROTECTIVE AND LOVING PET FOR THE CHILD AS WELL AS FAMILY. HE IS EAGER AND QUICK TO PLEASE, AND OBEDIENT WHEN HE IS MADE TO UNDERSTAND. HE IS QUICK-WITTED, AND ADAPTS READILY TO NEW CONDITIONS. BECAUSE OF HIS FEARLESS ATTACKS, SPEED OF ACTION AND KEEN NOSE, HE IS VERY SUCCESSFUL IN HUNTING BLACK BEAR, GRIZZLY, COUGAR, BOBCAT, LYNX, FOX AND RACCOON. A DOG EMPLOYED IN HUNTING THESE ANIMALS MUST BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND LONG AND TOUGH FIGHTING; THIS KIND OF STAMINA HAS BEEN BRED INTO THE JAGDTERRIER. SUCH PREY OFTEN SENDS LARGER DOGS RETREATING IN FEAR, BUT THE SMALL FAST JAGDTERRIER CAN OUT MANEUVER, FOR INSTANCE, EVEN BEARS AT CLOSE RANGE AND AT ALL ANGLES. TREEING BEAR, COUGAR, LYNX, OR BOBCAT WHEN HUNTING WITH A PACK-TWO DOGS AND UP- DOES NOT PRESENT THE HUNTER WITH THE PROBLEMS ONE OFTEN ENCOUNTERS WITH BIG HOUNDS. THE KEEN NOSE AND EAGERNESS TO HUNT MAKE DOGS OF THE BREED, EVEN WITH LITTLE TRAINING, GOOD BLOODHOUNDS. MANY ARE ABLE, AFTER SOME EXPERIENCE, TO WORK OUT 48 HOUR-OLD BLOOD TRAILS. IF THE JAGDTERRIERS IS USED TO FLUSH SMALL GAME, SOME TRAINING IS NEEDED SO THAT THE DOG DOESN'T HUNT TOO FAR. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE WHEN HE IS USED TO TREE BEAR, COUGAR, ETC. HOWEVER ONCE HE KNOWS HOW TO HUNT UNDER THE GUN, ONE CAN BE POSITIVE NO GAME WILL LEF5T IN A STAND-NO MATTER HOW THICK OR THORNY IT MAY BE. IN EUROPE THE JAGDTERRIER IS USED ALSO AS A RETRIEVER. HE DOES NOT RETRIEVE BY INSTINCT OR BREEDING THOUGH, AS FOR INSTANCE DO MANY LABS OR SHORTHAIRED POINTERS. BUT AGAIN, WITH SOME LESSONS ON THE SUBJECT, THE JAGDTERRIER WILL FETCH GAME UP TO MALLARD SIZE FROM LAND OR FROM WATER.
