Skye Terrier...


The Skye Terrier originates from the Isle of Skye off the Scottish Coast, and has a history that dates back to the seventeenth century. One of the oldest terrier breeds, the Skye Terrier was bred to hunt vermin. The Skye Terrier is a courageous dog with fierce loyalty and devotion when it comes to his family. Affectionate, bold, and full of courage, the Skye Terrier is a very loyal and loving dog, and is protective and alert as well as playful. This breed can be wary around strangers, can be dog aggressive, and likes to chase other small animals. The Skye Terrier enjoys being part of a family and should be fine around considerate children.

The Skye Terrier is an average shedder with a long, hard straight outercoat and a short, wooly undercoat. Regular grooming is very helpful with a full coated Skye Terrier. The haircoat should be firm, flat and straight. There is an undercoat which is wooly and soft, and close to the skin. The coat of the Skye Terrier can become matted, especially when exposed to moisture. The grooming requirements for the Skye Terrier are moderate, and you will need to brush and comb his coat several times a week to keep it in good condition. In addition, the ears and the hair around the eyes and mouth should regularly be cleaned. Baths should only be given when absolutely necessary.
