Terrier Breeds

 

Terriers are very popular pets. They are very energetic and high spirited. They are feisty in character and have tendencies to dig and bark. They were bred to dig up dens and burrows while barking furiously, forcing the vermin, larger rodents and foxes out while the hunters waited.

Most terriers have no tolerance for other animals and will chase them with the intent to kill them. If not supervised they will get into dog fights. This makes owning other pets difficult. They love to argue. This behavioral aspect can be controlled with obedience training.

 Most of these dogs have wiry coats. they adapt well to apartment living, love going for walks and love their family.

They are loyal, obedient, intelligent and have an instinctive nature to protect their family.
