I have just got new dog, German terrier. I wonder if anybody have any experience with this breed.

He looks a belter good luck with him
I have gone in on a follow up on a boar a few years ago in Germany. We followed the dog on a hot trail through thick undergrowth. It took us straight to the dead boar.

They then turned and went straight in, the next thing I saw was a big black boar!!! As it was stood partially in the brambles I could not see what sex it was, so I refrained from shooting. It then was driven off by the dogs..... in the wrong bloody direction and over the hill to the guns placed on the other side!! Just as it was departing I caught a sight of his "crown jewels" and confirmed it was indeed a big male!!
He still lived to fight another day, no one shot him so he must have shook off the dogs and got into some more cover and not pushed again that day!!
He looks good.
Don't know anything about this breed, but have had others are these's a surface terrier so not likely to dive down every fox hole they come across if they are free running
I hope you have a good sense of hummer as owning a terrier you need one
good luck and keep us posted
Had one years ago good on wild boar and foxes. As with most terriers need to show him who is the boss.
Know very little about them but think they're great wee dogs. I really fancy one myself although when I mentioned this to a German friend on a driven hunt he laughed and said "they cause their owners more problems than the boar"..... Right on que two of them started scrapping big style.
Still hasn't put me off, I quite like their attitude and to be fair they appear to have no fear whatsoever.
Who did you get it from out of interest, was it local - as in Scotland, as I know a lad with one which he had been speaking about breeding but didn't know if he had gone ahead with it?

I got it from POLAND for £200 from top pedigree kennel. The bigger jagdterriers (39cm) are used for wild boar, blood tracking and even for retrieving. smaller ones are used more for under ground work foxes, badgers. In Russia they use them for Bears

Seen lots of jagdterriers working Boar in Germany and France, but to me the Bear in the u tube clip looked to be tethered.
Very disappointed that this is shown on this site.
Sorry for that link has been deleted.
Very good, pleasant and usefull dogs, but VERY hard. Also used for tracking wounded game. Can be very self desctructive on badger, so be carefull.
