The Jagdterrier is a terrier breed of dogs for hunting. It probably originated in Germany. Jagdterriers are relatively small, but they are extremely strong dogs with much endurance and vitality.


This breed is black, with brown markings that resemble that of the Dobermann. The German breed standard calls for the breed to stand 33 to 40 cm (13 to 15.7 in) at the withers. It specifies that bitches should weigh from 7.5 to 8.5 kg (16.5 to 18.7 lb), and males from 9 to 10 kg (19.8 to 22 lb).

The coat can be either wiry or smooth. The tail is normally (but not always) cropped at 2/3 the natural length.

Jagdterriers are usually used in hunting, especially for game that is underground such as beavers, otters, foxes, wild boars, and rabbits, but due to its intelligence and adaptability, they can also become good pets.


Their life expectancy is 13 to 14 years.
