I can only repeat what fulltimemum said, they are hunting dogs. Very protective over food and toys. They need a lot of training and exercise.
I once heard them described as being like 'jack russells with PMS', I have to agree.

I've never seen another Patterdale get on with another dog. Small dogs with a lot of attitude. You have to be very careful!

As fulltimemum said, if its a hunter, keeping It outside would be best, but if it isn't.. Why bother getting a dog?
(Not being mean here)

Dogs are amazing animals that are extremely intelligent and loyal, keeping one outside just seems pointless. You wouldn't get any pleasure out of him/her, and trust me, it would bark constantly!

I'd say think about it long and hard hun

his friend takes his 'ratting' and this is who he is getting it off, id rather it be a house dog and if i get my way it will be, but if he does take it 'ratting' will it turn vicious. ive told him the minute it bites my little girl, me or my dog bobby it will be out the door, and if he wants to follow then thats his choice x

to be honest i dont even want it, ive got a yorkie and he is sooo cute and soft, hes 2 and has never bitten anybody atall. (hes in my sig). but OH has his heat set on this patterdale, ive told him everything you have said and he is still set on having this dog! another friend of mine told me they shed hair everywere 2! i just dont want to keep it outside, as u said whats the point, mays well get a bloody rabbit, dogs are supposed to be companions and part of the family. if it barks i will go nuts because i rent my house and im not getting evicted for a noisy dog x
