Border terrier centenary

The border terrier was officially recognised by the kennel club in Great Britain in 1920 and by the American kennel club (AKC) in 1930. The border terrier is a small rough coated breed of dog in the terrier group. Bred as a fox and vermin hunter the border terrier shares ancestry with the Dandie Dinmont and the Bedlington terrier. The border terrier was bred to have long enough legs to keep up with the horses and foxhounds which travelled with them. The border terrier has small enough bodies to crawl into the burrows of foxes and chase them out. The foxhounds were not small enough to do the job of a border terrier. Now the border terrier is more commonly seen as a family pet although some are still kept on farms to keep the vermin down.
