The Brazilian Terrier

The Brazilian Terrier

The Brazilian Terrier will never tire of playing with you! Completely devoted to the family, the Brazilian Terriers always have a certain spring in their step. Probably more curious than a cat, any smallest sound or slightest of movements will pique their interest. This goes well in their favour when considering a good watchdog-cum-family dog. The Brazilian Terriers will be ready to sound the alarm at the drop of a hat.

This instinct to protect their family might lead them to an extra bark or two, but it’s nothing that can’t be controlled through some training. Although an obedient and determined worker, they are known to be quite spirited, and need consistent and firm training. Not good with smaller animals, they manage to get along with other dogs their own size. To avoid any aggressive behavior when you’re entertaining, the Terrier dogs should be used to having people around. The Brazilian Terriers adapt best to older children and will prove to be a wonderful companion and guardian for them.

History:

The Brazilian Terrier has been around since the brink of the 19th century. It’s said that Brazilian students studying in Europe, bought back Fox Terriers and Jack Russell Terriers who were then crossbred with the local Brazilian dogs.

The breed that resulted from the cross breeding was named Brazilian Terrier and they were trained to kill vermin, herd the flock and hunt wolves. Although they aren’t very popular outside of Brazil, they continue to be a hit in their native land.
