He has a hard, straight, flat outer coat that hangs down to a length of 5.5 inches (14 cm). The hair on the head is shorter and softer with a veiling on the forehead and eyes. He also has a short and soft undercoat. His colour may range from cream to black, preferably with darker ears, muzzle and tail tip.

The Skye's temperament is described as one with courage, strength and stamina. Although he may be reserved with strangers, he is friendly and good natured with those he knows.

Fearless, alert, loyal, and sensitive, the Skye has the temperament of a typical working Terrier. The Skye's loyalty and devotion runs deep, however, the confidence and respect of a Skye must be earned.

The Skye Terrier, native to the Isle of Skye in Scotland, was bred as a fearless working terrier. He was used to track otter, badger and fox. It is generally believed that the Skye Terrier is the oldest of the Scottish Terriers dating back to the sixteenth century. Today's Skye, Cairn, Scottish, and West Highland White Terriers evolved from these original hardy, little terriers.
The Skye Terrier has a life expectancy of around 12-14 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. This includes thyroid problems, HD, allergies, cancer, autoimmune problems, and spinal issues. Premature closure of growth plate can also result from puppies jumping around too much, and this can lead to arthritis later in life. The parents of the Skye Terrier puppy should have OFA certificates.
