Elegant and very dignified, Skye Terriers recognise just one owner and are distrustful of strangers, but never malicious. Their legendary loyalty is just one among many qualities.
About the Skye Terrier
Skye Terriers are immediately distinguishable from their cousins, due to their low body, which is twice as long as it is high and covered with abundant hair. It moves apparently without effort, exuding strength through its fore and hindquarters, body and jaws.
Skye Terriers are tough and tenacious little dogs who form strong bonds with their owners. That being said, they are naturally wary of new people and have little patience for young children.
