Little is known about the origins of this breed , except that by the late 18th century it seems to have been found along the border between England and Scotland ,its form has changed little since then , partly because it has never become very popular and so has not been subject to changing fashions . it remains long –legged enough to keep up a good pace , yet compact enough to chase foxes right into their holes . its body is robust , and its hard coat is dense and weatherproof . With a more relaxed temper than many other terriers, it makes an excellent family dog
