JRT's are tough critters.

JRT's are great dogs, but maybe a bit more intense than what the OP is looking for. Still, they're hard to beat.

I didn't read all of the responses, so apologies if the following breed has already been mentioned. But have you thought of a TECKEL or Wire Haired Dachshund as they are known in different parts of the world outside of Germany? The few I've been around are smart, tough, super determined, and highly trainable hunters that love (live) to retrieve and swim like mini-Labs. At 10-15 lbs they're not heavy but they 'punch way above' their weight!


Pursuit may be, it seems to me, perfect without possession.

I haven’t found them to be too intense unless they think it’s what you want them to be… very smart little dogs…and easily trained… I think the OP would love one…

When “Tuffy” was born, I had the whelping box next to my bed…when the pups got to where they were crawling out, I built a pallet pen with chicken wire and put it in the living room…every morning when I got up at 4 a.m. to go to work, the little bastard would be standing with his front paws on the fence while the rest of the pups were in a pile sleeping… I’d pick him up and take him outside…I had him potty trained before he was 8 weeks old…never messed in the house… never chewed anything up and never got in the garbage…

Yes, a teckel is on my list. There's a fellow here in N.C. that has one he uses to track wounded deer. "Low to Ground Deer Recovery" on Youtube.
