Daisy is the latest addition to our family. She is a Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz, which translates as Analucian wine cellar ratter. Several hundred years ago English wine merchants settling in the sherry making region of Spain brought with them white terriers which were crossed with local breeds and used to control vermin in the wineries. Finally in 2000 the breed was recognized as a native Spanish breed by the Ministry of Agriculture.
They could be described as a Jack Russell on stilts as they are similar to the British breed but much taller and athletic. They are mostly white but should have a black and tan mask over very dark eyes and their ears.
