Synopsis

If you love dogs in general and terriers in particular then you will love this book. The book is the first of a two volume work about the Terriers of the British Isles. Many dog owners are interested in their breed, not from a formal stance, but from the perspective of its 'informal' history. For instance, the phenomenal popularity of the Collie and German Shepherd over the years can be traced to popularity of Lassie and The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin. Every child who watched these shows knew that, if they owned one, their dog would behave in an identical manner to their TV or film heroes. 'Terriers of Scotland and Ireland' is a 'terrier social history'. It is more concerned about their working and companion qualities and with the origins of the breed than in detailing the qualities of big prize-winners. The book is historically accurate and provides the professional dog owner with the data needed to develop an improved breeding program. Whether you are a professional or an amateur dog owner you will have endless hours of enjoyable reading.
