The Skye Terrier breed was developed in Scotland (named after the Scottish isle of Skye) and used as a hunter and herder.
Skye Terriers have long and low frames covered in straight coats that come in a wide range of colors including fawn, cream, black, blue, gray or silver. Their long, sturdy heads have dark, closely set eyes, strong muzzles and dark noses. Their ears, either prick or pendant, are uniquely draped with hair. They have long, feathered tails that can be carried high or hanging. Overall, the look of the Skye Terrier combines grace and durability.
Skye Terriers can live as long as 15 years.
