Border Terrier

The Border Terrier was developed in the hills between the north of England and the south of Scotland. The breed’s character and shape evolved from its use with Foxhound packs and by the shepherds to guard the sheep and lambs against foxes. It was important that the hunt terrier got on well with the hounds and other terriers and had enough sense to keep out of trouble with the pack and the horses.

Contrary to popular belief, Border Terriers did not run with the hounds, but followed the horses and had to be prepared to go to ground and keep the fox at bay for as long as was necessary.
