I have just been perusing a copy of the shooting times that a friend has dropped in to me. I was very interested in an article about fox terriers, in the article it mentions fox terriers being used in Sweden for tracking/flushing boar and deer. Has anyone heard of such a thing and if so is there any writing on the subject in the public domain?
I ask as I have just been through a divorce and my little Lab bitch had to be put down as she had cancer. So I am now in a much smaller house than before, I have no room for a medium to large breed of dog and am thinking of a terrier type breed.
I am afraid that the teckel looks too much like a sausage dog to me, my fault I know, but I am interested in what sort of dog/terrier would find me a deer that has run off. I feel obliged to have a deer dog but am unsure what breed to go for. What suggestions have you?
Yours hopefully, Simon
