Overview
During the 1600's hunters in the British Isles prized this breed for their hunting capabilities. As the demand for sporting Terriers decreased, the Hunt Terrier nearly became extinct. In the 1970's a few of these Terriers were imported to the United States from Ireland and England, where enthusiasts of this breed revived the Hunt Terrier. The Hunt Terrier breed is relatively rare.
Character
Hunt Terrier's are extremely fearless, highly active, and bold. The Hunt Terrier is small, agile, and built to go to ground. They are squarely built with a narrow chest. This enabled them to enter the dens of fox and badger. They are very intelligent and remain a hunting breed with a strong prey drive.

Does your Hunt Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Hunt Terrier was never intended to be a household pet. However, they are loyal, attentive, and bond closely to their master. They possess a true Terrier temperament. Hunt Terrier's do best in a home with older considerate children. They have a tendency to be distrustful of strangers and make good watchdogs. They do not do well with dogs they have not been raised with and are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. The Hunt Terrier breed is not recommended for inexperienced or first time dog owners. They are fierce, stubborn, and unrelenting.
Care
Due to the rarity of this Hunt Terrier breed, there are no known health issues. Combing and brushing of the coat weekly is required. Bathing should be done when necessary. It is important to regularly check the ears, paw pads, and nails.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Hunt Terrier comes in three different varieties of weather-resistant coat: Smooth, Broken, and Rough. The Smooth coat is flat, short, hard, and dense. The Broken coat lies closer to the body and has long guard hairs, is dense, and hard. The Rough coat is a double coat. The outer coat is wiry and dense. The under coat is dense and short. The hair on the muzzle and over the eyes form a beard and eyebrows.
Training
The Hunt Terrier requires a dominant owner. Obedience and socialization training are recommended. This breed does not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, consistency, and fairness. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Hunt Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Highly energetic, the Hunt Terrier requires an inordinate amount of activity and exercise. They are not recommended for apartment or city living, or for those with sedentary lifestyles. Hunt Terrier's require a large securely fenced yard, or a rural setting. This breed must have daily opportunities to run and hunt. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

A friend of mine has Hunt Terrier puppies, but one is grey. I can't find anything about the color grey as an acceptable color standard. Is this rare?

The Hunt Terrier should be black with tan markings only. If one of the pup's grey, then that coloration is considered a fault in the breed, not rare. Rare is a coloration that is accepted by the breed standard but not widely spread. But grey is not an accepted color of the breed so it is considered a fault. The pup should be spayed/neutered and the genetic's of all the pups should be checked to make sure they are not carrying the same gene is any of them are to be used to pass on that line.

If you are looking for a breed of dog to hunt and kill rabbits on your property, then the Hunt Terrier is a good breed of dog for you. Although, several other smaller breeds of Terrier's would work as well.

It is part of their Terrier act. Maybe your Hunt Terrier wants you to take her out and hunt wild animal because that is what some terrier are born to do..
