Skye Terrier

Skye Terrier The Skye Terrier breed was an aristocrat among farm dogs. Where other dogs were mostly left outside, the Skye Terriers were kept indoors with their masters. The Skye Terrier's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Skye Terrier dog breed has typical terrier characteristics. People who are best for them are those who share their own qualities: reserved and calm. They also tend to bond with only one person and will be warm to a few. These traits make the Skye Terriers seem unsociable to many. Neither force nor bribery will win their affection. It will have to be earned by being consistent and setting firm boundaries that are set with a gentle hand. They do not require much exercise and this makes them ideal in an urban home. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.

The Skye Terrier's Origins and History Source: Wikipedia. Country/Region of Origin: Scotland Original purpose: hunting Name: Derived from the Isle of Skye in the Hebrides where it was first bred. Historical notes: Skye Terrier dogs were bred to hunt predators such as foxes and badgers. They originally possessed drop-ears but Queen Victoria favored the prick-eared ones among those that she bred in the 1840's. This has led to the prevalence of the latter type today.
