 Dogs - Border Terrier

Border terriers originate in the "border" region between Scotland and England. Their job was to force fox out of hiding places on the farms in the Cheviot Hills. They also hunted other small animals like badger, rats, mice, marten, and otter. They may enjoy chasing cats and other small pets! They may also tear up and "kill" fluffy toys and pillows, so they will benefit from training from an early age as they can have a mind of their own.

Their ancestors include Dandie Dinmont Terriers & Bedlington Terriers. They were first proclaimed a breed by the British Kennel Club in 1920

Early history of how dog breeds developed.

About Border Terriers

Coat: The Border Terrier has a double coat: a short, dense, soft undercoat and harsh, wiry weather resistant outer coat with no curl or wave. The coat should be hand stripped to remove dead hair. Regular brushing also helps to remove dead hair. This type of coat does not need much bathing. They don't shed profusely, so the breed may be suitable for folk allergic to dog hair.

Health: They have been known to have fits, and eye trouble has occurred, so do check your dog's eyes regularly. But on the whole, it's a hardy breed with a life expectancy of 15 years

Ears: V-shaped, drooping towards the cheek. Ears are often dark.

Eyes: brown

Tail: Thick at base, tapering to a point.

Coat Colour: The muzzle is usually dark.  Red, grizzle and tan, blue and tan, or wheaten. There may be a small amount of white on the chest. 

Height at shoulder: males 33 - 41 cm, female 28 - 36 cm

Weight: male 5.9 - 7 kg, female 5.2 - 6.4 kg

Class: terrier

Dog food: 

Border terrier puppies should be fed on small breed puppy food.

Border terriers are scarce in South Africa, but a breeding program has been established.

What a lowly job the Border Terrier had! What a menial task - hunting for mice & rats. But he did it with enthusiasm. When you & I are asked to do crummy work, let's do it with our whole hearts as though we were doing it for God, not for man. Colossians 3, 23
