Border Terrier Centenary Clock
The Border Terrier was officially recognised by the Kennel Club in Great Britain in1920.
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 Terrier and the Bedlington Terrier.
The Border Terrier was bred to have long enough legs to keep up with the horses and other foxhounds, which traveled with them, and small enough bodies to crawl in the burrows of foxes and chase them out. The foxhounds that traveled with them were not small enough to do the Border terrier's job.
Now they are commonly seen as family pets.
