The Plummer Terrier is a phenomenal ratter, claimed by the breed enthusiasts to be the ultimate vermin killer. Intelligent, full of heart, well-muscled and strongly boned, this resilient little dog seems like an ideal working terrier. It can sometimes be confrontational around other dogs, requiring responsible ownership. Their loving and devoted personality makes them amenable companions, but the Plummer Terriers are better suited for working homes.
The short thick coat is favoured in white with reddish brown and fawn patches, but tricolour and brindled specimens are becoming more common. Average height is around 13 inches.
