It is difficult to find a dog with such vitality and energy as the Border Terrier. It seems that he can always be on the move and never gets tired. And it is not surprising, because Border Terriers were constant participants in horse hunting and always kept up with horses. So tiny, at first glance, dogs are incredibly strong and hardy.
Looking for even more insight on these dogs? Let’s have some cool facts about this wonderful breed of dog:
1 The border terrier originated on both sides of the Cheviot Hills in Great Britain. These hills form the border country between England and Scotland. As hills are abundant in this area, farmers' stock was terrorized by the powerful hill foxes.
2 To hunt and kill these foxes, the farmers and shepherds needed a plucky terrier with enough length of leg to follow a horse but small enough to follow a fox to ground.
3 The dogs had to be strong and tireless with a weather-resistant coat to withstand the mists and bone-soaking rains of the hills.
