Courageous of heart, active and game, this little working terrier known as the Border Terrier delights his owners with his friendly, happy disposition as well as his unwavering work ethic. Historically bred to follow the horses on the hunt, this is an energetic, purposeful terrier that is smart and resourceful, requiring an owner who can keep up with his quick mind and body. Author Muriel P. Lee, terrier judge and breeder, has provided an excellent introduction to the Border Terrier in this new Special Limited Edition. This comprehensive guide includes the history of the breed in England and the US, a discussion of the breed’s characteristics and standard, a chapter on puppy selection, care and rearing. The author also discusses house-training and obedience training plus preventing (and solving) behavior problems. General maintenance, including feeding the Border throughout his life, grooming and exercise, is carefully considered, as is the preventive healthcare of the breed. Dr. Lowell Ackerman, in a special guest chapter, discusses the vital health topics that concern owners, including the selection of a qualified veterinarian, parasite control, vaccinations, infectious diseases and more. For every owner of this fun, active terrier, this new colorful guide promises to be an invaluable resource for years to come.
