  2. We've had our rescue Olly for around nine years now. We thought she was just a mutt for a while, but we're pretty sure she's a border (though a scruffy one at that, since we don't have her stripped). At any rate, she's the sweetest little thing and loves to cuddle. I wouldn't know what I would do without her.

  3. I believe that I have a border terrier but don't know for sure, she has all the characteristics of a border terrier. How can I find out for sure? She's about 2 to 3 years old. I can be reached at [email protected] oh and if she is a pure bred how can I get her registered?

  4. I love the terrier breed. I have been the proud "puppy/doggo parent" to a Jack Russell, Rat Terrier, Mixed breed terrier, and now as of 1 month ago I received a Border Terrier for my one year wedding anniversary gift. They are very intelligent, loyal, cunning, and energetic. I am in love with my new companion; so much so I'm trying to figure out how I can bring her to work with me. I am looking forward to many years of companionship with my scruffy fur baby.
