    Utilization:

    Versatile hunting dog, suited in particular for the hunt under the ground and as a flushing dog.

    Group 3

    Section 1 Large and Medium Sized Terriers:

    With Working Trial

    Brief Historical Summary:

    After the first World War a group of active hunters separated from the numerically strong Fox-terrier Club. It was their aim to creat a breed, the sole purpose of which would be hunting performance. The experienced hunters and cynologists Rudolf Frieb, Walter Zangerberg and Carl-Erich Grunewald decided to select a black and tan hunting dog in particular suitable for the hunt under the ground. A coincidence came in support of their efforts. A zoo director, Lutz Heck / Hagenberg presented Walter Zangenberg with four black and tan terriers which were said to come from pure-bred Fox-terrier lines. These dogs became the foundation stock of the German Hunting Terrier. At the time Dr. Herbert Lackner joined the founders. After many years of intensive breeding efforts, and through skillful crossings with the Old English Wirehaired Terrier as well as with the Welsh Terrier, they succeeded to fix the appearance of their breed. At the same time they put great emphasis on breeding a multitalented, well trainable, hard, tongue giving and water-happy dog with an explicit hunting instinct. The German Hunting Terrier Club (Deutcher Jagterrier-Club c.V.) was founded in 1926. As ever, the breders continued to value most carefully their breed for its usefulness as a hunting dog, its steadiness of character, its courage and drive.

    General Appearance:

    A smallish, generally black and tan, compact, well proportioned working hunting dog.

    Important Proportions:

    Proportion of chest circumference to height at the withers - The circumference of the chest is 10 to 12 cm more than the height at the withers.

    Body length to height at the withers - The body is insignificantly longer than the height at the withers.

    Depth of chest to height at the withers - Circa 55-60% of the height at the withers.

    Behaviour/Character:

    Courageous and hard, takes pleasure in work, enduring, vital, full of temperament, reliable, sociable and trainable, neither shy nor aggressive.

    Head:

    Elongated, slightly wedge-shaped, not pointed, the muzzle slightly shorter than the skull from occiput to stop.

    Cranial Region:

    Skull - The skull is flat, broad between the ears, narrower between the eyes.
    Stop - Slightly marked.

    Facial Region:

    Nose - In harmony with the muzzle, neither too narrow nor too small, not cleft. Black, but when the colour of the coat is dominantly brown, a brown nose is also permitted.
    Muzzle - Strong, distinct under-jaw, strongly pronounced chin.

    Cheeks - Well pronounced
    Lips - Tight and well pigmented
    Jaws/Teeth - Big Teeth. Strong jaws with a perfect, regular and complete scissor bite, whereby the row of upper incisors, without gap, perfectly locks over the lower incisors, and with the teeth standing vertically to the jaws. 42 teeth in accordance with the teeth formula.

    Eyes - Dark, small, oval, well placed in such a way that injury is hardly possible; the eyelids are tight. Resolute expression.
    Ears - Set high, not explicitely small, V-shaped; slightly touching semi-drop ears.

    Neck:
    Strong, not too long, well put on and blending strongly into the shoulders.

    Body:

    Chest - Deep, ribs well sprung, not too broad, long breastbone with ribs well reaching backwards
    Underline - Elegantly curved backwards; short and fire flanks, belly slightly drawn up
    Tail - Well set to the long croup, docked for circa 1/3. Is rather carried slightly raised than steep erected, but should never incline over the back. (In countries where tail docking is prohibited by law, it can be left in its natural state. It should be carried horizontally or slightly sabre-formed.)
    Quarters

    Forequarters:

    General - Seen from the front the fore-legs are straight and parallel, viewed from the side they are placed well under the body. The distance from the surface to the elbows is approximately equal to the distance from the elbows to the withers

    Bitches - 33 to 40 cm
    Weight (desired ideal weight for working)

    Dogs - 9 to 10 kg
    Bitches - 7.5 to 8.5 kg

    Faults:

    Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree.
