Border Terriers

The Border Terrier breed was developed in the border country between England and Scotland. A hardy, working dog, though one of the smaller terriers (12"-14" at withers), they had sufficient length of leg to follow a horse, but were small enought to follow a fox to ground. Bred to protect the farmer's livestock, they are known for their courage, stamina, and cunning.​​

Outstanding characteristics of this well-mannered companion include a weather-resistant, wire, double coat, otter-like head, and erect, undocked tail. The Border is an excellent family dog adapting well to apartment or country life that includes children and other pets. Their coat, though requiring some maintenance such as hand-stripping twice a year and some combing, is easily managed. They do require daily exercise. They are a healthy, long-lived breed that have been described as unspoiled, unpampered, and uninhibited, and are sometimes referred to as a LBD (Little Brown Dog).

Dogwood Kennels has placed our home-raised puppies with people who appreciate these characteristics. These people have agreed to my requirements including lifetime ownership and being responsible pet neighbors. All of the dogs that I have bred have met the breeding requirements of the Border Terrier Club of America (A breed club of the American Kennel Club). At this time, I do not plan on breeding any more Borders. You may access a nation-wide breeder list at www.btcoa.org where you will find breeders listed by state.

Here are some of my dogs, past and present, and some of the puppies my dogs have produced. I thank you for the confidence you have placed in me as a breeder of these wonderful dogs.
