While you may be right, there's no such thing as just a "Terrier". Terrier is the name for a group of dogs. There are 7:
working (Husky, Doberman, great dane etc)
Pastoral (sheepdog types like border collie, GSD, bearded collie, australian cattle dog)
Terrier (scottish terrier, airdale terrier, bull terrier)
utility (poodle, schnauzer, japanese akita)
Gundog (labrador, setters, pointers)
hound (whippet, rodesian ridgeback, bloodhound)
Toy (yorkshire terrier, pug, chuhuahua, papillion)
In the terrier group there are loads of different breeds, not just one. She may well be a mix of different terriers which I guess makes her a pure terrier. What I meant when I said she was a mix of everything was that she wasn't purely one breed, there were different ones in her, regardless of what group they come from. Sorry for the confusion.
Sorry for throwing all the info at you as well, LOL. I spent a much too large portion of my childhood at dog shows with my mum. She showed Yorkshire Terriers and judges a variety of breeds. Hard not to pick some of the different breeds up as you go along.
And thanks for the well wishes. She certainly seems happy and healthy and wth any luck it will stay that way. The dog I had as a child, who lives with my mum, has been up for a few days and the 2 of them seem to get on very well. lisa likes to play a bit too much though, and bonnie gets a bit crabit with her but apart from that, they share a seat on the couch etc. It's ncie to see the pair of them together. :)
