Terriers of the Border Region
Fox Terrier 1806
This wonderful woodcut dated half a century before the English Stud books began, was captioned Fox Terrier 1806. This was because it was used for fox hunting. But the dog pictured is more likely to be a forerunner of the Border Terrier than its counterpart the Fox Terrier of England. From this early type of terrier originating in the border region between England and Scotland, this section follows the evolution of not only the Border and Lakeland Terriers, but also the Bedlington and Dandie Dinmont Terriers.
