This attractive, tough little dog derives from the Border country, the area around the boundary between England and Scotland, and is probably still seen in its largest numbers there. The Border Terrier was bred in the middle of the 19th century to be higher on the leg than most terriers of the same general size, which enabled it to run with hounds and yet be small enough to bolt the fox from its lair. The smallest of the working terriers, the Border makes a first-class pet. It usually loves all children, is long lived, will literally walk its owners off their feet, and is a good watchdog. It still retains all its hunting instincts and will happily take off on an expedition alone if allowed to roam unsupervised. It requires little routine grooming, and only a slight tidying up before exhibiting.
