The Border Terrier is an affectionate, fun-loving dog. They are reliably easy-going, but have independent natures and like to make their own decisions. They are equally at home in urban or rural areas, and they love to chase squirrels and rabbits.


The Border Terrier first appeared in the 18th century and has changed little since. They were used as working terriers in the Scottish Borders to hunt foxes that preyed on livestock.
