Border Terrier Dog Breed Puppy Ads
Breed Group: Terrier Group Height Male: 13-16 inches (33-41cm)
Breed Size: Small Height Female: 11-14 inches (28-36cm)
Breed Origin: UK Weight: 11-16 pounds (5-7kg)
The height of the Border Terrier is around 11-15 inches, and the weight is around 12-20 pounds. This is a little dog with a big personality. His double coat is harsh on the exterior and close underneath. The coloring of the Border Terrier can vary and includes grizzle with tan, blue with tan, or red. He has alert eyes and an inquisitive expression, and his ears hang folded to the top sides of his head, adding to his alert look. Although small, the Border Terrier is a robust and sturdy little dog.

A spirited, keen, and friendly little dog, the Border Terrier is an alert and enthusiastic dog, with a good nature, plenty of energy, and lots of determination. Although the Border Terrier can sometimes be quite easygoing, laid back, and sensible, at other times he can be filled with energy and spirit, with plenty of stamina and the determination to get out there, explore, and have some fun. The curious nature of the Border Terrier can lead him into trouble, so make sure that he is not let loose unless in a safe and secure area such as your fenced garden. This is a responsive dog that is willing and eager to please, but at the same time his high energy levels and spirit may make him better suited to those with some experience of dog ownership and training.

The Border Terrier is known to get along very well with children, and in most cases will get on with other pets that he is raised with, particularly other dogs. However, the Border Terrier may hunt smaller animals such as rodents, so bear this in mind when considering this breed if your child has a favorite pet hamster that likes to run around the bedroom! This breed is usually fine with strangers and his tendency to bark makes him an effective watchdog. This is a responsive breed when it comes to training, and those with the experience and know how can use the right attitude to get the best out of this plucky little dog.

Like the Border Collie, the Border Terrier was developed on the borders of England and Scotland in the UK. These dogs were once known as Reedwater Terriers, and were developed for hunting in the countryside along with foxhounds. The Border Terrier was registered with the AKC in 1930.
The life expectancy of the Border Terrier is around 12-15 years, sometimes longer. There are some health problems to look out for with the Border Terrier and some of these include Legg Perthes, cataracts, luxating patella, thyroid problems, autoimmune problems, seizures, heart murmurs, PRA, HD, and allergies. Parents of the Border Terrier puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
