Historical notes
In the second half of the nineteenth century the county of Yorkshire had become an important center for the textile industry. Workers carried their little long-haired terriers at work, so that they would hunt the rats that caused a lot of damage to the wool bales. In the same period, the Yorkshire miners behaved the same way by using these dogs to drive the rats inside the coal mines. Thanks to their small size and their agility they could easily enter the narrower tunnels and search for miners in difficulty in case of emergencies and danger. Obviously, today the Yorkshireno is no longer required to hunt rats, but certainly the attitude to this activity, proper to this breed, has not changed. Huddersfield Ben is considered the progenitor of this breed born in 1865 but the Yorkshire Terrier breed was born after various crossings.

Historical notes
In our breeding the westie could not be missing: it was colonel malcolm who selected the white color of the hair required by the standard. The colonel chose this color for the animal visibility during the hunts that, in fact, was decidedly better. In fact the westies were used in hunting foxes and rabbits.

Temperament/Behavior
Small, active, sporty, strong, with a good self-esteem, with a fluffy appearance. Smart, cheerful, courageous, independent but friendly.

Coat
Hair: double coat. The covering hair is thick, about 5 cm long, without curls. The undercoat, which looks like a fur, is short, soft, dense. An open coat highly undesirable

Color: white

Scottish Terrier

Appearance
Massive, of adequate size for the work in the lair, which precludes dogs having a body excessively heavy, with short legs, but quick and that suggests the idea of great power and activities combined in a reduced size. The head gives the impression of being long compared to the size. Very agile and active despite its short legs.

Historical notes
The scottish terrier club was founded in 1882, a year later the first breed standard was drawn up, and three years later the breed began to take the same aspect we know today thanks to captain gordon murray who was validly supported by the founder and first president of the kennel club, mr sewallis evelyn shirley. The public image of this short-legged terrier coming from the highlands, is often that of a strong scottish, but with his family and friends he is affectionate and cheerful; always attentive to the slightest noise, for his spirit of protection towards his home and family.

Temperament/Behavior
Loyal and faithful. Decent, independent and reserved, but courageous and very intelligent. Bold, but never aggressive.

Hair: the hair is adherent and it has two layers: the short undercoat, woolly and dense; the wire surface hair, "iron wire" and thick; all together they make up a weatherproof cover.

Color: black, grain or "brindle" of each shade

The jack russell terrier originated in england in the nineteenth century, thanks to the efforts of rev. John russell. He created a breed of fox terrier to have a dog that run with his foxhounds and could drive out the fox and other wilds. Two varieties were developed from the basically similar standards except for some differences concerning mostly height and proportions. The taller type, with a more square construction, is now known as parson russell terrier, while the shorter, with slightly longer proportion, is known as jack russell terrier.
