Skye Terrier

The Skye is an ancient breed, originally developed to hunt otters, foxes and badgers on the Islands of Skye and Colonsay. They were reportedly the ‘aristocrats’, belonging to the laird (lord of the manor) and not kept with the other hunting dogs. The breed reached its height of popularity after Queen Victoria acquired her first Skye in 1842. There are two varieties of Skye – the prick ear and drop ear, the prick ear being the most popular at the present time.
