Border Terrier

The Border terrier is without a doubt one of the oldest of all terrier breeds. He was developed in the border country between England and Scotland by farmers needing a dog to help them hunt fox. The Border is a dog with enough leg to accompany the mounted hunters in the rugged hill country, yet narrow, agile and small enough to bay, bolt or draw the foxes from their rocky, underground dens. This game little companion has retained the character and instincts of a true working terrier; consequently a fenced yard is a must and he may never be totally reliable off leash.
