Skye Terrier

Breed: Skye Terrier Find Litters

The Skye Terrier is an old breed of terrier that originated more than four centuries ago on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. He was used to hunt, following prey into their burrows then dragging them out. The Skye Terrier is a rare breed, and if exercised too often, too young, especially before 8 months, they can damage their bone growth. Jumping up and down from objects, climbing over objects, running, even long walks, are all things to be avoided for the first 8 to 10 months to prevent later problems and allow for correct closure of the growth plate.

Mammary cancer is the leading cause of death amongst Skye Terriers.
