Dog Breeds

Border Terrier

Border Terrier
Size
Appearance
It is the smallest of the terriers, however, it is still able to keep up with horses when out. Its coat is durable enough to withstand the weather on the borders between Scotland and England. It is capable of confronting a fox or even a much tougher badger. The short coat is only maintained by weekly stripping which can be quite time consuming and there is a technique involved. Clippers must not be used as they will ruin the coat.
Characteristics
A big hearted dog in a small frame, the Border Terrier retains a natural, unexaggerated look. A splended companion, the border Terrier adapts well to town or country life. They will take as much exercise as you wish and are reasonably obedient.
Temperament
Plucky, alert,affectionate, fun-loving.
Grooming Req.
Excerise
Moderate
Locality
Town & Country
