Terriers were originally bred as hunting dogs, to hunt small pest animals such as rats, or to assist in the traditional fox hunt. Over the years, they became renowned as companion dogs, especially the smaller terrier breeds, such as the wire fox terrier, made famous by Asta, the companion of 1930s detective movie characters Nick and Nora Charles.
