Breed All About It - Border Terrier. Border breeder and earthdog
enthusiast, Marg Pough, has four young dogs learning how to hunt
like their forebears. Except this time the quarry is a rodent. Two
teenage Borders are training for AKC earthdog trials.

Alert,
active and agile, the Border Terrier is willing to squeeze through
narrow holes and sprint across any terrain to capture his quarry
the fox. This persistence made him an excellent working terrier back
in England, and allows him to succeed in Earthdog, Obedience and
Agilty trials today. Known for his otter head and game attitude, the
Border is medium-sized with a wiry coat that may be red, grizzle and
tan, blue and tan, or wheaten with a dark muzzle.

The Border
originated in the border country between England and Scotland, and
may be one of the oldest kinds of terriers in Great Britain. Purely
a working terrier, the Border was bred to protect the stock of their
owners. They had sufficient length of leg to follow a horse, but
were small enough to follow a fox to ground. Borders on the farm in
the 18th century also had to find their own food, so they had to be
good hunters to survive.
