Dog of hunting of variable utility, especially for the hunting in madrigueras or to raise the hunting. After World War I, some active hunters separated of the Club of Foxterrier that was very superior in number, to create a race that was oriented exclusively to the ability in the hunting.This way, the quinólogos experienced in hunting Rudolf Friess, Walter Zangenberg and Carl-Erich Grünewald solved to raise a black-reddish dog of hunting to carry out the work in madrigueras.
