The Breed History

Sky Terriers are considered to be one of the most ancient of terriers. This type can be traced back to records dating four centuries ago in the Isle of Skye in the Hebrides region of Scotland. Popular with English Royalty in the 1600s, they remain popular today in the British Isles. The AKC first registered this breed in 1887. The breed reputation for loyalty was advanced by the story of Bobby, a Skye terrier who was featured in Disney's story of “Greyfriar's Bobby”.
