History [ edit ]

The Border Terrier is a small, rough-coated dog belonging to the terrier family. This breed originated on either side of the Cheviot Hills area which form the Border (which has given the name to this breed) between England and Scotland and it is considered one of the oldest breeds of terriers in Great Britain. This breed was originally used to protect the stock from predatory foxes and despite its small size it has the stamina to keep pace with a horse. Its appearance has not changed very much over the time, but today, although some Border Terriers are still used as farm dogs, helping to control vermin, but they have become mainly companions. Border Terriers are also talented in watchdogging and tracking, and can easily be trained to agility and obedience competitions and to perform tricks.
