This terrier takes its name from the Scottish/English border where it hunted fox across hill and moorland.
Those in rural smallholdings, suburban semis or inner-city apartments.
Non-terrier folk. Border Terriers look super-cute, are very adaptable, and have won the hearts of many town and city dwellers, but they are still terriers at their core. If you don't like the independent, spirited nature of a terrier, the Border isn't for you.
Reedwater Terrier, Coquetdale Terrier
You could pick them up if you had to in an emergency.
Medium (About an hour)
Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.
If not hand stripped will go fluffy. If you don't pluck their fur in the old fashioned way they transform from spikey to soft.
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
