Skye Terrier

Fiercely loyal and affectionate, the Skye Terrier thrives as a family companion. An elegant medium-sized dog with short legs and a large head, the Skye Terrier was originally bred in the 1600s on the Isle of Skye off the west coast of Scotland. One of the oldest and rarest terrier breeds, the Skye Terrier is friendly with those he knows and cautious around strangers. The breed needs regular exercise, and his soft coat requires brushing several times a week plus regular trimming.
Living Considerations
  • Good with older children
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
  • Not hypoallergenic

Fourteen years after his master’s death, a Skye Terrier in Edinburgh, Scotland, named “Bobby,” remained loyal, reportedly spending every night watching over his master's grave in Greyfriars Kirkyard. A statue in memorial of “Greyfriars Bobby” was built near the graveyard in 1873.
