The Border Terrier is a small breed of dog that is a member of the terrier grouping. The breed is a descends from the Bedlington Terrier and the Dandie Dinmot Terrier. The Border Terrier was originally developed to be able to hunt both small vermin, like mice and rats, and foxes. The breed therefore has a small compact body and large legs. The Border Terrier's large legs allowed it to keep up with horses and other foxhounds during a hunt while its small body allowed it to crawl down fox burrows to chase the fox into the open. The Border Terrier has a very unique shaped head with a broad skull and a short muzzle with a scissor bite. The breed also has v-shaped ears on the side of its skull that fall towards its cheeks. The Border Terrier has a rough coat that normally comes in grizzle-and-tan, blue-and-tan, red or wheaten colorations. As a whole the Border Terrier is known to be a friendly, intelligent and loyal breed. It is important to note that due to their high levels of intelligence the Border Terrier has a tendency to be strong willed and stubborn: which can lead it to be hard to train. The Border Terrier is known to be extremely child friendly but is known to chase other small animals and pets due to its high prey instinct.
