Patterdale Terriers were first bred in the Lake District where they were prized for their hunting abilities thanks to their small size and keen senses. Over time, these little terriers became a popular choice both as companion dogs and family pets with many people in the UK and in other areas of the world and for good reason because these little terriers boast having loyal and friendly natures. The Patterdale is not recognized as a breed by The Kennel Club although they have been recognized by the UKC and the American Rare Breed Association although it is worth noting that the Patterdale is not a vulnerable breed having found a fan base in a home environment as well as in the field. As such, there is not set breed standard for Patterdales although responsible breeders are working hard to establish one.

Patterdale Terriers are a relatively new dog to appear on the scene having been bred in the sixties by Brian Nuttall from dogs he had been given by his grandfather. He used Buck and Breay bloodlines to produce his own, namely the Nuttall bloodline which even today is regarded as one of the best in the country and as such puppies command a high price for the good breeding. As previously mentioned, these little terriers were developed in the Lake District, where the climate and environment is harsh and hilly. It's where flocks of sheep graze and where foxes were and are a problem. It was for this reason that farmers needed a robust, hardy dog capable of working and protecting flocks in harsher environments against predators. Unlike other terriers that were trained to go to ground after their prey without killing it, the Patterdale was trained to dispatch their prey if prey stood their ground and fought back, a Patterdale knew how to deal with things rapidly and efficiently. Often referred to as Black Fell Terriers, the Patterdale was first bred over a 100 years ago and they were given their name after a village in the Lake District called Patterdale. Patterdales have a quite unique ability which is to compress their chests and this enables them to get down small burrows and holes. They are also capable of lying completely flat on their bellies with their back legs outstretched and their front ones stretched forwards which helps them reach prey that’s gone to ground. Patterdales were bred to be as "hard as nails" which paired to their courage makes them formidable hunting dogs. Today, Patterdale Terriers are kept more as companion dogs and family pets thanks to their charming looks and kind, albeit very alert natures. As previously mentioned, they are recognized in the UK by The Kennel Club, but Patterdales are a recognized breed by the United Kennel Club.
