Originally bred to hunt and kill badgers, foxes, and otters on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, the Skye Terrier is both fearless and friendly. They are devoted to their families and have a happy and self-assured personality. Their terrier heritage makes them excellent watchdogs – they will alert you if anyone is near – but they are more likely to befriend a stranger than harm them. They are intelligent but can have a mind of their own, so early and consistent training is a must. The Skye Terrier is a bit more low-key than other terriers and will do well in nearly any environment, though their barking can become a nuisance. With early socialization, the Skye Terrier will get along well with children and other dogs. This affectionate and loving breed will make a great companion!< p>
