Skye Terriers are small dogs that are twice as long as they are high. They have long coats that can be black, grey, fawn or cream in colour.

Perhaps the most famous Skye Terrier is Greyfriar's Bobby. For 14 years following his masters death he sat and kept guard over his grave. There is a statue in the dogs memory that stands near Greyfriar's Church in Edinburgh, Scotland.
