Gameness of a Kerry Blue

Discussion in 'Dog Discussion' started by IrishRebel1916, Mar 4, 2020.

  1. Some people call Kerry Blues nothing but "show dogs" now of days but that couldn't be further from the truth.

    These dogs have it in them to this very day, some won't go looking for a fight but i guarantee they will finish it.

    This particular Kerry Blue bitch has had various run ins with other dogs including my uncles two staffs (a dog and a bitch) and has always came out on top.

    Link below to a video of her which shes does nearly everyday hanging onto the wooden fence sometimes for hours.

    If you want a game terrier I would give props to a hard Patterdale terrier. Kerry’s are just aggressive curs. My wife has Irish Terriers and has had them over 30 yrs. they will not back down from a fight but that means nothing. They are just show dogs and are all terrier but to claim gameness on a Bulldog site is a far stretch of the truth.

    My biggest question is why? Bulldogs are for sport but you don’t need or want that in a true working terrier. Hard yes not game.

    Friend, if you’ve ever seen a working earth dog take his death in a raccoon den you might see a different version of gameness. Fell terriers are bred to stay not bay and bolt, there are deadgame terriers such as the Booth dogs and Riviottas patterdales.

    I'm no authority on working terriers mate, but honoured to have known a few of the best modern terrier men in the country, seen rough coated fell type, smooth black and chocolate coated Patterdale type, white patch coated Russel types and the gameness of them dogs was fckn unbelievable!

    There was a notorious black coated Patterdale in my area during the 1980's went by the name of Buster, It was common knowledge whenever they let Buster down a hole, he was killing whatever was in there or die trying.. The people who owned Buster said he was too hard on quarry to make a good earth dog, but they bred him hoping for that gameness and attitude in his pups anyway..

    They had other terriers that presented more intelligence than Buster but were just as game.. I never had any interest in hunting or earth dogs, but to say them terriers are not game isn't only misinformed, it's unbelievably misinformed!.. I'll go further and say the ones I seen were as game as any bulldog I seen!

    Most people don't expect what they get when they get a small Terrier thats hard in every way like a Bulldog.Even reach a point you can't leave them alone and have to seperate them for their own good.To me Bulldogs is easier to keep .I got Jack Russell's and they are just terrible to keep .Small,smart,escape artist and find a way to tear up a peace of rebar if it was only thing around and love TROUBLE.Stick with Bulldogs lol.

    I get bitten every day by one of my Jack Russell's and never been bitten by my Bulldogs at least not on purpose lol.My dam Jack Russell's weird way of showing me love is just bite the hell out of me.I've knocked the shit out of them many times only to get bitten again next day.

    I think prey drive may be part of it. Some of these terriers are intense bite/hunt fiends (like the dog latched on to the fence). While amped with adrenaline and free flowing endomorphins, they become impervious to environmental distractions, to include pain from injury, tight spaces etc.

    Well now that wasn’t exactly my point mate but here’s my own opinion. I’d class a terrier that mixes it with the quarry but has the sense to back off and start sounding and can be took out more often as the better digging dog than one that gets smashed up every time he goes down. Breeding strictly for gameness in a terrier might mean being out with the dog less than it spends healing. Digging isn’t a sport to me it’s pest control and thus a numbers game.each to his own though .

    With respect mate, my post wasn't about what constitutes a good working terrier, I'm clueless on that stuff anyway.. What I said was 'they're game!' Stupid game maybe, given they work in complete darkness. restricted by the depths of the earth, facing something twice their size, that's totally pissed off, baring teeth and in self protection mode.. I understand there's probably a type of terrier which might be preferable to some, while others prefer a different type, but that's not the point mate.. What I'm saying is a 12-15lb terrier descends into the bowels of the earth alone to face unknown quarry, stays with it or goes straight into it, live or die, no matter how long it takes.. That's game!

    Probably the most common trait of bulldogs is their intense desire to confront other dogs, usually to a degree that's off the fckn scale.. IMO their historic desire to fight is both a feature and distortion of their intense prey drive.. First comes hunting, then comes trouble! Maybe a generalisation but that's how I saw it when I raised pups, or had young dogs around the place.

    Heard a old fella say if they don't get Geeked up when they saw another dog he didn't want it.

    Then I see this going the way of what constitutes gameness so I think I’ll agree to disagree most terriers aren’t truly game and it isn’t the number 1 priority for breeding one.
