The Border Terrier in Brief
The Border Terrier
Club of America (BTCA) has developed this booklet to help you decide if a
(BT) is the right dog for you. No dog is the perfect dog, and all breeds have special
characteristics and needs. We think the Border Terrier is the best kind of canine
friend, but we know that terrier manners and Border traits are not for
everyone. Because of our
concern for our little brown friends, we believe it is important
that you are well informed about
the breed before choosing a Border for yourself and your
family. A Border can live successfully
in a variety of situations but, unless you are
willing and able to provide for his special needs,
you will both be unhappy.
Border breeders and owners, like their dogs,
are usually friendly. We want you to enjoy your Border,
should you choose one. Many
breeders suggest you visit a home where there are Borders before you decide.
interest in Borders includes showing in conformation or obedience or having one as a
family pet, we feel it is important that you understand what makes a Border a Border.
Then, if you
decide to own one, you will treasure him for what the breed still is and help
us keep him that way.
