Used in conjunction with Fox Hounds on fox hunts, these dogs would go after game that had gone into hiding. There were originally both wire and smooth haired varieties, but the wire haired variety has since been bred out.
High energy, playful, sometimes dominant, these guys are very much terriers. They can be barkers and diggers, and are always exploring. They are independent and not very interested in strangers. They can be tough around other dogs, but are usually not aggressive.
