Biewer Terrier Size
Anita says; “Being a toy breed, the Biewer Terrier weight is up to 3.6kgs. Their height at the shoulders is the same as the height at the rump. Length of the body can be slightly longer than the height of the dog.”
Biewer Terrier Health
“The breed are generally healthy,” says Anita “Although there are health issues relating to any small breeds, our Breeders continue to carefully monitor breeding stock for any health issues which may arise. We are a new developing breed".
Biewer Terrier Special Care
Anita recommends “They are hypo-allergenic, being non-shedding and long-haired, the breed do need a regular grooming routine if the coat is kept long. The coats can be trimmed into a ‘puppy cut’ to make it more manageable. As with all dogs their teeth should be regularly cleaned, nails trimmed and eyes wiped, hair on the head is usually kept in a top knot.”
Remember! All breed profiles are general and every dog is an individual.
