Prince is an un-papered Patterdale terrier.  Short haired black haired 30 pound and stands about 14-15" at the shoulder.  Prince was raised in a small town in Kansas and after my mom passed we brought him to Colorado. I cannot keep him but this is really a dog made for adventures and be that family dog everyone loves.   I can provide his health and shot records which will show that he has all his vaccinations neutered and his teeth are verified by the Vet to be good. Prince is friendly with dogs and children (kids that will know to be nice to animals he hasn't been around babies) I'm not sure about his friendliness to cats. He has been boarded when I am out of town and does well with the other dogs. In fact he was raised with another dog so I know that he would do well with another dog.  He's a loving friendly & healthy dog who is also house broken non-destructive; has not chewed or had accidents. Not kennel trained but he is trainable – he can sit come and walk on a leash very well. He loves his walks and is good in the car. He is an active dog breed that needs some exercise but if it's cold outside he can tolerate not taking a walk. He needs a yard and would like either a single person a couple or a family but probably He doesn't sleep in our bed but he would love that currently he sleeps in the living room and never has made messes or been destructive during the night. He is allowed on the couched for snuggles under the blanket. You won't meet a more loyal well-mannered dog; he will be your best friend and want to be with you as you move from room to room. When your gone he'll watch for you but not cry/bark.  He does puzzles to get his treats which is shown on one of the pictures. So Smart! I'm really interested in finding Prince a loving home. I will want to talk to you and ask questions. 

Patterdale Terrier Dog Breed Characteristics

The Patterdale Terrier is a small, robust, and energetic dog breed that originated in the Lake District of England. Here are some characteristics commonly associated with Patterdale Terriers:

  1. Size and Appearance: Patterdale Terriers are small to medium-sized dogs. They typically stand about 10 to 15 inches (25 to 38 cm) tall at the shoulder and weigh between 11 to 13 pounds (5 to 6 kg). They have a sturdy and muscular build with a well-proportioned body. Their coat is dense and weather-resistant, coming in various colors such as black, red, brown, or chocolate.

  2. Energetic and Active: Patterdale Terriers are highly energetic and require regular exercise to keep them happy and healthy. They have a lot of stamina and love to be active. Daily walks, play sessions, and mental stimulation are essential to prevent boredom and potential destructive behavior.

  3. Intelligent and Alert: Patterdales are known for their intelligence and alertness. They are quick learners and respond well to positive reinforcement-based training methods. Their intelligence also means they can be quite independent, so consistency and firmness are important in training.

  4. Fearless and Courageous: Patterdale Terriers have a fearless nature, which can be traced back to their origins as working terriers. They were originally bred for hunting and have a strong prey drive. This makes them excellent at tasks like ratting and hunting small game. However, their prey drive may also lead to chasing behaviors if not properly managed.

  5. Protective and Loyal: Patterdale Terriers are known to be protective of their families and can make good watchdogs. They are typically wary of strangers and will alert their owners to any potential danger. They are also loyal and form strong bonds with their human companions.

  6. Socialization: Proper socialization is crucial for Patterdale Terriers to ensure they grow up to be well-rounded dogs. Early and ongoing socialization will help them become more comfortable with different people, animals, and environments, reducing the likelihood of behavioral issues.

  7. Grooming: Patterdale Terriers have a short, dense, and weather-resistant double coat. Their coat requires minimal grooming, with occasional brushing to remove loose hair. Regular nail trimming, teeth brushing, and ear cleaning should also be a part of their grooming routine.

  8. Health: Patterdale Terriers are generally a healthy breed with few breed-specific health concerns. However, like all dogs, they can be prone to certain health conditions such as patellar luxation (knee dislocation), progressive retinal atrophy (a degenerative eye disorder), and some dental issues. Regular veterinary check-ups and a healthy diet are important for their overall well-being.

Remember that individual dogs may vary in temperament and characteristics. If you're considering adding a Patterdale Terrier to your family, it's always a good idea to meet and spend time with the breed to see if their traits and needs align with your lifestyle and preferences.
