    Nuttalls dogs are in the pedigree of most top digging dogs around. But like all popular lines everyone and there mother has tried to breed/sell off his name.

    i seen some dogs direct of Nuttalls yard last year, his wife sold them to a friend, i was surprise at how small they were, at first glance they looked like pups,though most were adults, they didnt look strong enough for the job to me. you would need to be careful where you worked them.

    It sounds like they'd do great for a lot of guys here.I don't want them that small myself but i know many do.

    Big and not tiny are 2 different things.Like the man said if too small,you have to be careful where you work.Fire don't mean anything if they can't back it up.

    How do you think those tiny ones would handle a big dog fox? Or a badger? No jokes just asking serious.
     
  7. I am not a hunting man and dont know much if anything about patterdales at all
    but i think it was early to mid nineties I met a guy called scholten he dead already .
    I was asked by guy's I knew in USA to send them some dogs , the patterdales he had came sraight from nuttal , I recall some were even white haired long hair
    I send them dogs to canam boys and john reuver ( I think they both passed or for sure out of the dogs) I also send a stafford to a woman called road runner
    there was a dude in europe called ronnie he took over the dogs from scholten , I think he quit the dogs
    I do have a bunch of pictures of those old nuttal dogs somewhere
    the main dog was a dog called rocky and a bitch called susie

    I send susie to USA and 5 or 6 others dont know what happened to them
    I know the first one I send escaped and that little critter was found a few weeks later in the bush of canada and managed to survive

    During a dig well enough on fox....badger may need bigger dog but depending on hunting style..

    not big but with the strength not to be push about the place. agree with you on hunting styles, seen a lot of small hard terriers get smashed up but a small sensible one is a handy tool

    True enough....they need the strength but size isn’t that helpful in the dark....as long as we’re not talking stupid small.
