Terriers are a specific group and type of dog that were originally bred to dig and hunt for prey like foxes, moles, badgers, rats and to guard their family’s home or barn. Their name originates in the Latin word ‘terra’ and means ‘earth’. They are feisty and energetic, and size range from small to larger.
Prospective owners should know that terriers make great pets, but they do require determination on the part of the owner because they can be stubborn; have high energy levels and require special grooming (known as “stripping”) to maintain a characteristic appearance.
