Arrival Story: I lost my Jack Russell Terrier (JRT) in a freak accident one warm day at a local lake. I was devistated and needed another dog quick. So I started looking for another JRT and this man was advertising "JRT like" dogs called Patterdale Terriers. So I called him and set up the appointment to come see. When I arrived he said that he had 5 males; 4 smooth coated and 1 rough coated. I told him I really wanted to see the rough coat and he said he would let all the dogs out at once so stand back. When he let all 5 boys out they came running into the yard like rockets with the small rough coated guy running straight at me and sat at my feet...need I say anymore...Paddy came home with me that night.
Bio: We are an active pair, early morning walk (about 45-60 minutes) then I'm off to work and he "guards" the house. After work we are right back at it with either an hour walk or off to our trainers for a session. We love each other very much. In fact the other day I was walking Paddy in the morning an a person heading to catch the ferry who sees us every morning commented "That is the luckiest dog", and I told him no "I'm the lucky one!". :-)
