Rare Breed Monday: Biewer Terrier

The Biewer Terrier is a toy dog with long hair and perky temperament. These dogs are very small, and generally weigh under 7 lbs. 

This is a young dog breed that saw the light of day in Germany in the mid 1980s, and the breed standard was created in 1989. The first representatives of the breed came to the USA in 2003, and today there is an active breed club.

These dogs are typically eager for adventure, energetic, brave, loyal, and clever. They are sweet and affectionate little dogs, but like all dogs they require training, attention, and exercise. They are small, but they still need to play, and go for daily walks.

The Biewer Terrier is fairly hardy, and have an average life expectancy of 12-15 years. They need regular bathing and brushing. Many keep their coat short to make it easier to manage.
