Terriers of the Border Region
Fox Terrier 1806
From this early type of terrier originating in the border region between England and Scotland, this section follows the evolution since 1806 of not only the Border and Lakeland Terrier, but also the Bedlington and Dandie Dinmont Terriers. Today two of these breeds' standards still reflect the quarry these terriers were originally bred to hunt. So the Border Terrier has a head 'like that of an otter' and the Dandie Dinmont has a 'long, low weasely body'.
