Literally German for “hunt terrier”, the jagdterrier is a hunting dog developed in Germany between the two world wars, in a time when German nationalism and feeling of superiority were at an all-time high.

Hunting cynologists Walter Zangenberg, Carl Erick Grunewald, and Rudolph Friess decided that the popular Fox Terrier was being bred more as a show dog, and less as an efficient hunting machine, so they started working on a new breed of terrier, one that would be superior to British and American breeds.

In the end, the jagdterrier turned out to be a nearly perfect hunting machine. Its main characteristics were exceptional physical qualities, great instinct, ruthlessness, perseverance in pursuing its prey, fearlessness, and a capacity to take on prey much larger than itself”.
