Featuring the Border Terrier dog figurines, gifts, and collectibles. The Border Terrier is a small rough-coated breed of the terrier group. They were bred to hunt foxes and vermin. Their long legs help them to keep up with horses and foxhounds and their small bodies give them the ability to crawl in burrows of foxes and chase them out. These are friendly dogs and are good with children but may chase cats and other small pets.
