Border Terrier

Home > Dogs > Breeds > Terriers
Country of Origin: Scotland
We also have Border Terrier pictures.

Like many terriers the Border Terrier has two layers in its coat. The underlayer is soft while the top layer is hard and wirey in texture. An interesting point to note about these terriers is that their coat of hair should never be trimmed. When their coat is trimmed serious hair and skin problems can occur as a result. It is however safe to trim the hair on the face, especially around the eyes.

Border Terriers make good pets because they are full of energy and generally good natured. They do however require a great deal of attention from their owners. In replacement of this they can be kept with other dogs that also have a good deal of energy to keep them occupied.
