The Feisty Terrier Breed Group

Home | Terrier Dog Group



People familiar with the Terrier Breed are well acquainted with the feisty nature of this Group. Known for being high in energy and varied in size from the smaller Norfolk Terrier to the tallest of the Terrier's the Airdale.

Different breeds were developed for different reasons, some originally used for the sport of hunting rats and keeping vermin to a minimum around buildings and farmhouses, others worked with packs of hounds to aid in the hunt.

Their tenacious nature was taken to combine with Bulldogs to produce a fiercer fighting dog in times gone by.

The Airdale is by far the tallest of the Terrier Breed. Most fall in the small to medium sized category and special attention is required to many of their coats. Exceptions to this are the Staffordshire and Bull Terriers whose coats are extremely smooth but these are susceptible to skin rashes.
