While they may have the head of an otter, Borders are all terrier and no mistake. Nothing frightens these proud dogs. Solidly built, well balanced and full of energy, they tend to want to dominate other dogs – large or small – and must be introduced to them regularly from a very early age to get used to living among them without starting fights.

For centuries these dogs were used solely for their qualities as a hardy terrier in the Scottish borderlands. They had to be able to follow the trail of a fox for several hours. Fearless and without reproach, Borders have all the behavioral traits of a working dog. Farmers bred them with the endurance to follow a horse and the stubbornness to chase a fox all the way down its hole.
