    Hello, I am a 47 years old Patterdale Terrier and American Pit Bull Terrier fan from Germany. Now I have only 2 old APBT females, because there is a law against breeding them in Germany, and 9 Patterdale Terriers.
    I use my smaller dogs for fox and badger, the bigger ones on wild boar.
    Here is a little fun clip, where you can see a part of my pack playing on my yard:

    Thank you!
    I like them bigger, because there is more wild boar work than earthwork in my area.
    Also we have a lot of badgers in fox burrows, and difficult earth with many rocks below.
    Wild boar is not what they were bred for, but they work them fantastic.
    And some of my dogs are too big for earthwork.

    ...I hope my English is ok.

    Next big city is Dortmund, about 60 Km from my home town.

    No, for me they are the perfect family dog.

    For hunting I prefer Teckels

    I think you use them below, ...right?
    There are two kind of Teckels in my area. The smart ones, who bolt the fox / badger with barking, and the hard ones who fight the quarry below.
    What kind of them do you prefer?

    The hard ones, they are probably the most ferocious and fearless dogs on earth, considering their size.

    I prefer the hard ones, too. But we have many rocks below, not easy to dig and strong badgers.
    A hard dogs live could be very short in my area.
    So some hunters prefer the smart ones, to save the costs for the vet or a new dog.
