Feisty and energetic the two primary traits that come to mind for those who have experience with Terriers. Mainly hairy, the terrier dog breeds make good pets. But they also do require good grooming to maintain their trade-mark appearance.
The terrier was originally created to hunt vermin. Hence Terrier breeds vary greatly in size from just 2.5 kg (5.5 lb) to over 32 kg (70 lb). Even small terriers are sturdy enough to be a child’s pet, but if they’re not socialized and trained, their bossy attitude will pose problems. Thus they will happily challenge much bigger dogs as they are by nature, game and fearless. We won’t advise you to keep smaller mammals or pets at home with them because these innocent Terriers look at these smaller mammals as vermin that must be eliminated.
