The Border Terrier

One of Britain's most popular dog breeds evolved at the Cleugh. The breed of dog which honed its particular skills in combat with Redesdale's rough, tough foxes is the Border terrier. These determined and intelligent little dogs owe their name and character to John Robson of Kielder and John Dodd of Catcleugh, who became masters of the newly-named Border Foxhounds in 1857.

The first official Border terriers debuted at Bellingham Show in the 1870s, and the British Kennel Club recognised the breed in 1913.

Today the Border Terrier is presented in national shows and is an immensely popular breed.
