Silky Terrier

Short title: 
silky terrier

Silky Terriers behave like terriers. They're sturdy, hardy, quick and demanding. They're usually friendly with strangers and snappish with other pets. Silky Terriers are barkers and chasers. Keep them on a leash or in a fenced-in yard whenever they're outside.

Silky Terriers are part of the Toy group. Toy breeds are small companion dogs that were bred as pets for wealthy, cultured families. In general, toys are the perfect apartment dogs, since they require little, if any, outdoor exercise.

Personality: 
The Silky is lively, smart and friendly. He is affectionate but not demonstrative. He wants to stay close to his human companion, but don't expect him to curl up in your lap; according to many breeders, he's "more terrier than toy." This playful imp is not above making a little mischief - if left alone for too long, he may find creative ways in which to entertain himself. He is docile, although he may not tolerate roughhousing or teasing. He is constantly curious about everything around him.

Personality: 
Full of character, the Scottie is intelligent, courageous, dignified and loyal. As a puppy, he is playful, but as he grows up, he takes on a more purposeful air.

His discerning nature makes him naturally aloof toward strangers. Those who know him well consider this bewhiskered gentleman to be a friend and companion second to none.

Sealyhams are part of the Terrier group. In general, terriers have a very distinctive personality that's unlike any other breed. They're feisty and energetic. Originally bred to hunt and kill vermin, terriers love the chase-don't let your terrier off its leash unless it's in an enclosed area.

Shetland Sheepdog

Short title:

Personality: 
The Sheltie's lively but gentle and responsive temperament makes him an outstanding companion. Naturally attentive and protective, given his shepherd ancestry, he is also extremely bright and intensely loyal. He is very attached to his family but can be reserved with strangers and has a predisposition to shyness, so he must be well socialized from an early age.
