Border Terrier

Border Terrier


Height: 10-12 inches

Weight: 11.5-14 lbs.

Life Span: 13-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
The Border terrier, the most easygoing and affectionate of the terriers, is an ideal companion.

It loves children and is very playful with them. The Border terrier accepts feline family members if raised with them but will chase (and possibly kill) strays or other small animals if not controlled by its owner.

It may also be scrappy with other dogs unless socialized when young. As with most other dogs, Border terriers do best with early obedience training.

Appearance
The Border terrier has a broad, otterlike head and a dark, short muzzle. Its undercoat is short and dense; its outercoat is very wiry and close-lying. Coat color is red, grizzle and tan, blue and tan, or wheaten.

A thick but loose-fitting hide enables this dog to move through bushes and brush without getting cut or tangled up.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
If the Border terrier is groomed regularly--slicker brushing weekly and stripping (removing old hair by hand) every six weeks--the coat won't mat and shedding will be minimal.

The Border terrier enjoys daily walks, jogs, and hikes but can adapt to a more relaxed, easygoing lifestyle.

Origins
Native to Great Britain and Scotland, the Border terrier was bred in the 18th century to chase and "bolt" (drive out) foxes from their hiding places.

This superb, hard-working hunting dog will cross any terrain or obstacle in any type of weather.
