Skye Terrier Information

Skye TerrierThe most well known Terrier up until the late 1800s, the Skye has since fallen sharply in popularity, which is a shame because he is a plucky, dignified and devoted pet. His appearance – medium build, shaggy hair past his eyes and huge pointy ears – is unique among the Terriers a great conversation starter.

For those lucky enough to welcome a Skye into their home, they’ll find he is fiercely loyal to his family, reserved and calm, and sensitive to the needs of others. He needs just a moderate level of exercise to remain on his best behavior.
