Overview
Originating near the border of Scotland and England in the Cheviot Hills area, the Border Terrier was bred to be a farm worker. Their primary function was to drive fox from their den and kill them. They were also used to hunt otter, badger, and marten. Today the Border Terrier is relatively rare in the United States but is a highly regarded companion and continues to be utilized as a vermin hunter on farms.
Character
This breed is small, compact, lively, and extremely energetic. The Border Terrier possesses vitality, stamina, and endurance. They are hardy, robust, and good-natured. As a member of the herding group they are capable of independent thought and action.

Does your Border Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Friendly and playful, the Border Terrier is very affectionate and thrives on human interaction and attention. This breed is more placid than is typical of the other terrier breeds. They do best in a home with older considerate children. They will generally get along with other dogs but are not recommended for homes with cats or other small household pets. The Border Terrier does not do well if left alone for extended periods of time and will become destructive and bark excessively if bored or lonely. For this reason a two-career family is not an ideal situation for them. They are wary of strangers but are generally not aggressive. This breed is not recommended for the novice, apathetic or sedentary dog owner.
Care
The Border Terrier must be brushed weekly and have the coat professionally stripped twice a year. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary using a mild shampoo to preserve the integrity of the coat. This breed has a high tolerance for pain and will rarely show any sign of illness or distress. Therefore, it is imperative to closely monitor their health. Border Terriers are prone to hip dysplasia, PRA, cataracts, seizures, heart defects, allergies, and a low tolerance for anesthesia. It is important to not over-feed this breed as they have a tendency to gain weight easily.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Border Terrier has a weather resistant double coat. The outer coat is wiry, straight, coarse, and lies close to the body. The under coat is dense and short. The color of the coat comes in blue and tan, grizzle and tan, red, and wheaten. The muzzle is dark. This breed sheds little to no hair.
Training
Eager and willing to please, the Border Terrier requires early socialization to prevent timidity as well as early obedience. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods that break their spirit and make training more difficult. Training must be done with praise, motivation, reward, respect, patience, and consistency. The Border Terrier displays talent in such areas as tracking, agility, competitive obedience, and hunting. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Border Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Border Terrier needs regular, daily exercise and enjoys being given a job to do. They benefit from securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and a safely fenced area to romp and run freely. This breed will do okay in an apartment dwelling provided they receive sufficient physical exercise and mental stimulation. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

The Border Terrier has a voice and they like their owners and neighbors to know of it. However, they can be trained to only bark at intruders if training starts at a young age and is Positive Reinforced based.

How heavy should my 7-month Border Terrier be?

Border Terriers average 11 - 15 lbs at adult hood and your dog should be full grown by a year old. So anywhere between 7 - 9 lbs, depending on the sex, amount of exercise and food you feed your dog should be a good level.
