At one time, different strains of Terrier existed in each isolated village in the north of England. Breeding to Kennel Club standards reduced this great variety, but some remote region's unrecognized breeds continued to flourish. The Patterdale is one of these breeds. Virtually unknown outside Great Britain, this breed is generally found in Great Britain's Lake District and in Yorkshire. The head of the Patterdale is strong and powerful, in balance with the size of the dog, and wedge or trapezoidal shaped when viewed from the front.
