Border Terrier


The Border Terrier Club of America was founded in 1949 and is the go-to resource for everything border terrier. If you are interested in more information about the breed, a club history, or a breeder directory, make sure to spend some time on the BTCA website.

The Border


He is an active terrier of medium bone, strongly put together, suggesting endurance and agility, but rather narrow in shoulder, body and quarter. The body is covered with a somewhat broken though close-fitting and intensely wiry jacket. The characteristic "otter" head with its keen eye, combined with a body poise which is "at the alert," gives a look of fearless and implacable determination characteristic of the breed. 


Occasionally, border terriers come into rescue and are looking for loving homes. If you think you'd like to open your home to a rescue border terrier, take a look at the North American Border Terrier Welfare website for contacts and information.
