Fox Terrier

The gentry and working class alike owned Fox Terriers. During the hunt, when the fox went to ground, Fox Terriers (which were carried in saddlebags on the horses) were brought up and sent in after the fox. Their job was to chase the fox out of its lair so the hunt could recommence. They were not required to kill the fox because if they did the hunt would be unable to continue. The working class also bred these dogs to keep vermin down – a job they excelled at and which also provided much sport.
