Biewer Terrier Puppies Dog Breed Information

The Biewer Terrier, often called the “Beaver Terrier,” has an interesting story. It started in Germany when Gertrud and Warner Biewer bred two Yorkshire Terriers with special piebald genes. They got two unique puppies that were black, white, and tan. They bred these puppies to make the first Biewer Terrier. These dogs became popular in Germany in the late 1980s.

Even though they became less popular in Germany by 2000, they became famous again in the United States. In 2009, Mars Veterinary studied their genes. Then, in 2021, the American Kennel Club said they were part of the Toy Group. What’s special is that they were the first breed recognized as purebred using science, not just family history.

The Biewer Terrier is a fun and loving dog that enjoys being with its family. It likes to do funny things to make them laugh. They’re small dogs that need lots of love and attention. They’re friendly and usually get along with kids, other dogs, and even strangers after a while. But because they’re so small, they can get hurt easily by rough play, especially with little kids. It’s best for families with older kids who can be gentle with them. It’s important to watch them closely when they play with kids to keep everyone safe.

Sometimes they might want to chase small animals because they’re terriers. So, if you have other small pets, it’s good to help them get used to each other. They can be taught not to bark too much, and they’ll let you know if someone’s at the door, but they’re not noisy dogs.

The Biewer Terrier is a breed that can easily adjust to different living situations. They’re suitable for apartments and can also thrive in bigger homes where they have space to play. They generally do fine in various climates, but they’re sensitive to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold.

Because they’re small, they might need extra protection in cold weather. Having some winter gear for dogs can keep them cozy when it’s chilly outside. Since Biewer Terriers enjoy human company, it’s best not to leave them alone for extended periods.

Biewer Terriers are usually healthy, but they can have some common issues like sensitive stomachs, knee problems, and dental diseases because they are small dogs. Regular vet visits and good care can help keep them healthy.

Biewer Terriers are typically easy to train and are a good choice for both novice and experienced owners. While some terriers can be stubborn, this is less common in the Biewer Terrier. They are intelligent and eager to please, making them quick learners. Housebreaking may take a bit longer due to their small size, but consistent training methods can help them learn quickly.

The Biewer Terrier usually has a long coat with three colors: black, white, and tan. Though they don’t shed much, you should brush their fur every day to avoid tangles and mats. If you prefer, you can have their coat trimmed short by a groomer.

With short fur, you’ll need to brush it less, maybe once a week. But you’ll still need to visit the groomer a few times a year to keep it short. Giving them a bath as needed will help keep their coat clean and shiny, no matter the length.

Besides coat care, it’s important to trim their nails monthly to keep them from getting too long. Regularly checking and cleaning their ears can help prevent ear infections. If you see any problems, it’s best to go to the vet. Make sure their ears are clean, dry, and free of dirt or bugs.

Since they’re small, Biewer Terriers are more likely to have dental issues like gum disease and cavities. Brushing their teeth every day or using an enzyme toothpaste can help. Your vet can suggest safe dental treats and food to keep their teeth healthy.

Despite their small size, Biewer Terriers are lively and spirited. A daily walk and some playtime suffice for these little dogs, although they’re usually open to more activity if you’re up for it. They’re agile and easygoing, so they might enjoy outings to the dog park or other activities with you. However, being small, they can tire quickly, so it’s important to monitor them to ensure they’re not pushing themselves too hard to keep pace with you.

A mature Biewer Terrier typically stands between 7 to 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 4 to 8 pounds.

Biewer Terriers typically have a lifespan of around 16 years.
