Border Terrier: Personality & Health Issues
Border Terrier:

The friendly Border Terrier adapts readily to city life, but still requires regular exercise.  It does like to hunt and can be quite independent, ingredients that make for a dog that may tend to roam if given the chance. 
They do best when allowed to divide their time between house and yard, and when given long daily walks in a safe area.  The Border Terrier is generally good with other dogs and cats, and with children.  Out of all the Terrier breeds, the Border is one of the most amiable of the group.

Because it has a hearty appetite, its meat should be chopped very fine to prevent choking if the dog gulps too quickly.  Its harsh coat needs brushing weekly, plus stripping of dead hairs four times per year to maintain its clean outline.
