Which breed of dog will kill mice?

Lots of breeds of dogs were original bred to rid an area of rodents. But not all dogs even of those breeds will catch and kill mice or other rodents.
Many dogs in the terrier group were originally developed for rodent killing.
I have a toy breed developed as a rodent killer originally but only some of them hunt. The ones that do are excellent at it but you don't know when you buy a pup which will do that.
Among other breeds rat terriers were designed for rodent killing. ***** *****s also may do this.
But in comparison to the dogs my cats are very much the best at this.
Hope this helps you!
