The Old Dominion Terrier is an American breed that has been in development by hunters and farmers since the late 1800s.  When English immigrants came to the United States, they brought these terrier  crosses with them. They trace back to the original cross of Fox Terrier, Pit Bull, Whippets, Beagles, and most recently the Basenji. 

      These versatile farm dogs were crossed with various other breeds to create the ultimate farm dog.and what was to become the Old Dominion Terrier.   Although this breed was created for hunting, this is a happy breed that loves its people and would be well suited as a companion and family dog for people with an active lifestyle.  Even  though they give the appearance of a large rat terrier, they could not be more different. 

      They are capable of hunting wild boar, coyote, being used as hog dogs, livestock guardians as well as vermin control.
