    TERRIER GROUP

   Tough and tenacious.
   These little dogs were miniaturized from hounds to follow prey
    underground
   their name comes from terre, French for ‘earth’ - and kill it or drag
    it out.
   most of these dogs can be trusted with cats equired dogs small in
    size but big in spirit
   While they were described as early as the 16th century as
    quarrelsome and snappy,
   terriers are endlessly entertaining,
   and it is hard not to fall for their sheer lust for life.
   Terriers can be dangerous with small, furry creatures - from cats to
    rats.
    Most are passionate diggers and will journey down rabbit holes in
    pursuit of quarry.
    Some terriers are considered untrustworthy in homes with cats
    and other small animals,
   Although terriers are generally small, they are high-energy dogs
    with a love of exercise and play.
    They’re also intelligent and will find something to keep them
    busy if you don’t.
   In general, Terriers still have a strong prey drive and will chase
    anything and everything.
