A little about the Skye Terrier

Originally from Scotland, the Skye Terrier makes a good-spirited, plucky family pet. Their attractive appearance is cover for a tough, fearless, nature and they make a good watchdog. Also calm and sensitive in temperament, if given daily exercise, this dog can be successfully kept in urban areas.



The Skye Terrier does not experience any major health concerns. Less commonly, however, they may have premature closure of the distal radius, intervertebral disc disease and copper toxicosis.
