This lively, spirited dog is a true terrier. Bred in Manchester, England, for the common man's sports of rat killing and rabbit coursing, he's got game and he loves to show it. The Gentleman's Terrier (as he is known in Victorian England) is not a sparring dog but loves a good chase, making him a flyball and agility rock star.
