Border Terriers are true working dogs in the purest sense of the word and they essentially still are today. However, they are just as happy living in a home environment as trustworthy, loyal and affectionate family members. They have very specific traits that are not always welcomed by everyone they meet. Border Terriers have tremendous stamina, as they were bred to follow horses around all day long. Therefore, they need plenty of daily exercise combined with plenty of mental stimulation to be truly happy, well-adjusted terriers.
