From the Inside Flap
The Border Terrier is essentially a working terrier, originally bred on the Borders between England and Scotland, and used to go to ground after foxes. This is one of the oldest terrier breeds, and the Border retains the game character and rough and ready appearance which has endeared it to dog lovers worldwide. In Border Terriers Today, author Anne Roslin-Williams uses her specialist experience to produce a book for the true enthusiast. The history of the Border is traced to its present-day status as show, working and family dog. The leading kennels in Britain and the USA are highlighted, as well as many other breeders from overseas who have made their mark. Advice is given on choosing a puppy, feeding, exercise and training, moving on to the more specialised areas of breeding Border Terriers and rearing a litter. There is an indepth analysis of the Breed Standard and invaluable information is also given on showing and judging the Border Terrier. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A small dog with a large dog's attitude to life is an apt description of the Border Terrier. The breed has risen in popularity dramatically in the last decade and is now listed among the twenty most numerous breeds in the British Kennel Club's registration statistics. There has also been a marked escalation in numbers in Holland, where the Royal Family own Borders, while the breed enjoys a steady following in America, Sweden and Denmark, and it is in the ascendant in Finland. This is amazing to those who remember the time when the breed was known chiefly by hunting folk, and only recognised by the general public in certain areas of the British Isles. Now Border Terriers are known throughout Britain in both the country and the city. They appear in films and on the television, are used in advertising, and appear as companions to celebrities. Border Terriers appeal because they are a handy size, yet not a toy dog, they have the natural appearance of a normal, unexaggerated dog, their tails are not docked, they have attractive heads and, above all, they have equable temperaments, not being so hot-headed as some other terriers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
