    Question Help Please :)

    Hey guys,

    apologies if this is in the wrong section of the forums (its my first post so I hope that excuses me ^^')...

    Anyway, I'm babysitting a dog and everything is going great, his really getting settled and attached to my family members.

    Just curious to know what breed is he? It totally didn't cross my mind to ask the owner when she left on for her vacation.

    Thanks

    Default What terrier is this?

    I like topics that reflect what the post is about eg "What breed is this dog?" not topics that give you no clue like "Help Please".

    So I'm going to guess because I can.

    Some sort of terrier that has been clipped.

    Not a Yorkie - they're black and tan and they're smaller
    Not a silky terrier - very small and black and tan
    Not an Aussie terrier - well it could be the sandy version but the face doesn't look right
    Not a Scotty terrier - they have long noses
    Not a Border terrier - black and tan
    Might be a Cairn Terrier but can't tell from photos.

    Not a Staffy or Bull terrier.
    Not an Airdale (duh).
    Not a Tenterfield but is similar. Are all Tenterfields black?
    Not a Manchester Terrier - they look like small doberans.

    Might be a west highland terrier (westie)
    Might be a lakeland terrier (never heard of these before)
    Might be a lucas terrier (never heard of this before either).

    Might be a bitza terrier.

    Well I apologise that this title does not suit your needs, but the world does not revolve around you. Nonetheless, thank you for your reply, you've been of much help.

    Ozeymum, thanks for attempting to help me and for your very friendly welcome ^^

    No wurries Jen

    I just post that at you and I get an email from my mum with "advice please" as the subject line. Frequently these go in the bit bucket - especially if my spam filter isn't working very well and if you email somebody who gets heaps of email, anything with a vague subject line will definitely go in the bit bucket.

    Anyway - do let us know if you find out what kind of terrier he is, does his owner do SMS Txt messages? - that can be a good way of communicating with someone on holidays.

    Welcome Jen.

    Possibly Cairn but it's hard to tell because of the bad hair cut. Could be Westie but more like Cairn ....?

    If you really want to know check with the owner's Vet. They will have it on record.

    Hyacinth, Lakelands are lovely if you are into Terriers. Along the lines of Airedale and Welsh but smaller. I nearly got one once but too much hard work to keep the coat looking good.

    Hey Jen. Looks Cairn - ish to me...

    But could well be a Australian Silky Terrier X...

    Google both those and let us know what you think.

    Defininitely not a Westie as they are white - unless it is a really bad photo.


    Ps - for Hyacinth - a Tenterfield terrier is pretty much visually similar to a "Mini Foxi" so is very different to this one..

    Hi Nattylou

    I've mostly seen Tenterfields as a black blurr as they zoom around at high speed. And I've only seen black ones, but my experience doesn't limit the (colour) possibilities.

    Hey Hyacinth.

    I think you must have them mixed up with something else???

    From Australian National Kennel Council

    Colour: Predominantly white with black, liver and/or tan markings in its various tones. Tri colouring is common (i.e. white with black markings and tan cheeks and/or tan above eyes and/or tan breeches). Brindle markings acceptable but not preferred. Full colour coats are not acceptable. Skin should always be pigmented.

    Are you thinking maybe Manchester Terrier??
