    History

    Although the Brazilian terrier was originally from Brazil, his ancestors did not come from South America, but mainly from Europe. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, many Brazilian youths studied at European universities, especially in England and France. It was not uncommon for them to come home married and their wives sometimes brought small terrier dogs with them. These were mixed with the native males and females, so a breed of dog developed, whose members looked different and literally strange.

    But in a few generations the phenotype of the Brazilian terrier. It is believed to be the result of crossing Pinscher, Chihuahua and Jack Russel Terrier.

    By the way, the Brazilian terrier became familiar with the different living conditions in Brazil: At first families with their dogs lived in the countryside before being attracted to the big urban centers, that gradually developed. The Brazilian terrier used to serve primarily as a rat hunter. In the meantime, However, its field of application has been expanded: they are excellent guard and family dogs.

    Selective breeding of this breed of dog, highly appreciated in Brazil but almost unknown in Europe, started around 1970.

The weight of an adult animal is a maximum of eight to ten kilograms. This applies to both males and females, although the height at the withers is different in both: While reaching 35 a 40 centimeters in males, it's just 33 a 38 centimeters in females.

    Interesting and unusual is that Brazilian terrier have different tail lengths from birth: From a rudimentary stump on a medium long tail to a full tail, you can find the most varied expressions. This characteristic characteristic of the breed gives the Brazilian terrier an individual appearance and does not detract from its charm, on the contrary.

    The dog also owes its special charisma to the small folded ears, as well as the big round blue eyes, green, brown, Bluish gray or reddish brown with an open and lively look. The head seems very expressive. It has a triangular shape and is wide at the base. The face narrows noticeably from the widely spaced ears to the tip of the nose. Due to the relatively distinctive groove on the forehead, seems thoughtful.

    The short coat, smooth, fine and tight dog feels very nice, a bit like the hair of a rat. No underwear. Especially soft areas are found on the head, the ears, the bottom of the neck and the inside of the front legs. As a rule, a Brazilian terrier it's tricolor. The basic color is always white. It is flanked by black marks, blue and / or brown red, they provide a distinctive pattern. Over and over you hear and read that the Brazilian terrier has strong similarities to Fox Terrier. This is undeniable, but there are visible differences: the Brazilian's muzzle is much shorter and the body contours appear more rounded, while the body of the Fox Terrier is more angular.

    Character and skills

    The character of Brazilian terrier can be described, justly, as little complicated. Their social behavior is once again much better than that of other types of terrier. For example, the stubbornness of Russel and I shake it off Fox Terrier are much less present in South America. He is very friendly with the people he meets and in relation to contact with their owners, one can use terms like “loving” and “Tender”. Also with other dogs the Brazilian terrier usually gets along smoothly.

    Like your relatives in the terrier family, the Brazilian terrier it is extremely spirited, and therefore active and lively. You could also say: a real brazilian. As a result, need plenty of exercise. He loves to accompany runners and hikers and frolic with children., but is content with fun adventures in the park without complaining. But please, pay attention to the variety: The dog finds both pleasure in ball games and recovery. It moves freely and elegantly. Typical are the short and fast steps.

    The Brazilian terrier is considered a smart dog – but of course this requires a certain amount of activity, not just outside, but also inside the house or the apartment. Its high level of attention and the fact that it is initially reserved towards strangers, his above average barking often qualifies him as a watchdog. It is also worth mentioning the dog's ability to empathize in almost any situation..

    In short, It is an excellent dog for home and family or social, which can be easily trained with a successful mix of gentle and patient guidance. Canine sports enthusiast (agility, fly-ball). In addition, gets along very well with horses, making it an excellent companion for horse owners. Thanks to his pleasant character, the Brazilian terrier also suitable as a beginner dog for people who have had little or no experience of active dog ownership to date.

    Considering its origin, the Brazilian terrier is naturally used to tropical temperatures. For this reason it is recommended to give up the breed if you live in very cold and rainy climates.

    Care and health of the Brazilian Terrier

    The maintenance of Brazilian terrier it's comparatively easy. This is mainly due to the short, smooth coat without undercoat. The dog hardly loses hair, so it is also suitable for allergy sufferers who have to do without the four-legged friends of other races for health reasons.

    Talking about health:

    Another positive aspect is that the Brazilian terrier they are particularly resistant to diseases and have a high life expectancy. On average, they live on 12 a 15 years. Only with respect to the ears is necessary caution: Dogs have what are known as slanted ears, which means that the ear canal is angled. This makes ventilation of the inner ear somewhat more difficult., which promotes the settlement of bacteria and fungi and significantly increases the probability of a dangerous ear infection. For this reason, the ears of the Brazilian terrier must be cleaned regularly and thoroughly. To do this, earlobes and special ear cleaners are used. These agents help loosen dirt and wax from the ear and, therefore, keep the quadruped healthy. Important: Never use cotton swabs. They would have a counterproductive effect.

The name Terrier is derived from the Latin “Terra” for the earth. So they were dogs for movement on land and underground.

    High-ranking terriers were supposed to run with the herd on fox hunting. When a fox took refuge in its burrow, terriers had to chase him underground and get him out of the burrow, as it is called in the language of the hunters. One can imagine that the fox, after all a well fortified predator, does not voluntarily abandon its burrow. So a Irish Terrier I had to be very brave, fearless and defensive.

The first special breed club for Irish Terriers was founded very soon, the 31 in March of 1879 in Dublin.

    Inglaterra FCI 339 . Large and medium sized Terriers

    Parson Russell Terrier

    The Parson Russell Terrier is a fearless dog, very happy, energetic and friendly.

    Content

    History

    The Parson Russell Terrier it is a small to medium sized terrier. It's a hunting dog.

    Although this breed of dog is very young in modern dog breeding, the Parson Russell Terrier is very close to the old and classic type of a terrier in character and appearance. Terriers form a large group within dogs. Its name is derived from Latin “Terra” for the earth. So they were dogs for work on land. The first evidence is given by the ancient Romans. Already in the Middle Ages terriers are described in detail. His homeland is in the British Isles. Terriers existed across the country. In the stables they kept the small vermin at bay. Even the big rats were not a problem for them. The hens, pigeons and rabbits protected them from marten and foxes. To keep chasing foxes, the terriers were sent to the trench.

    The Parson Russell Terrier of today they are made exactly for this purpose. They should and could take the fox out of the den. At the same time, they had to run with the fox hunts in the herd, namely, they had to be able to follow the gallop of the hunt. All of these tasks require enthusiastic commitment, special courage, independent thinking and the so-called sharpness of predators.

    The Parson Russell Terrier turned into a versatile hunting dog, it's not only suitable for underground work. In the 19th century the English shepherd Jack Russell he was a successful hunter, rider and above all breeder of Fox Terriers. In his long life as a breeder he greatly increased the performance of the Fox Terrier. They were now fit for all individual hunting tasks, they could work in the herd and in the burrow at the same time.

    In Australia, only with the help of their dogs could a plague of foxes be contained. To thank this, these dogs were finally named after their breeder, the Parson “Jack Russell” Terrier. They were and are physically and mentally raised for work, no show dogs. So breeders and lovers of this terrier long refused to join the modern pedigree dog breeding system, because they did not want to see the dogs evaluated primarily for their appearance and feared the negative consequences of the show business on the fitness and health of the dogs. This has done this breed of dog very well..

    Seriously raised, these are dogs that were largely saved from hereditary diseases and extremes in breeding. The “Jack Russell Terrier” had from the beginning a wide range of sizes, rather short-legged and rather tall. Since performance was decisive, such refinements had no role. Now two dog breeds have been made from “Jack Russell Terrier” and the two lines have been separated in the brood. The little one is still called Jack Russell Terrier, It has a height at the withers of up to 30 cm and is provided a little longer. The Parson it is a little taller and with more legs and in its rather square shape. Parish priest is in English another word for “Pastor”. So two dog breeds are called as one person, el pastor Jack Russell. Both dogs are a credit to the Shepherd. In 2001 the new race Parson Russell Terrier was officially recognized.

    Physical characteristics

    The Parson Russell Terrier It is suitable for the working dog, Active, Agile, built for speed and endurance. It gives the impression of balance and flexibility as a whole.

    You can have hair smooth or hard if it is thick and dense to protect it from the inclement weather, as the cold and wet. Its color It can be entirely white or predominantly white with brown spots, lemon or black or any combination of these colors, preferably stains should be limited to the head or the birth of the tail.

    It measures to the cross between 33 and 36 cm., their weight approximate is of 8 a 10 kilos to be slightly larger in proportions that the version of the Jack Russell Terrier, though it should be specified higher copies exist as “Jack Russell” in some clubs working in United Kingdom and United States, due to what these clubs do not form part of the FCI and therefore, handle different to the recognized standard registers and accepted worldwide by the 84 Member countries.

    Character and skills

    Parson Russell a fearless and friendly Terrier.

    This breed was bred to hunt, Chase and corner foxes in its burrow, therefore, they carry in their genes, and if this activity does not form part of the life of your puppy, We recommend that, exercised it daily intense they are dogs with a huge dose of contained energy.

    Perhaps its character lively and friendly has caused to be one of the dog breeds preferred by many people as a pet.

    Leave running, ride a bike, launch frisbee or ball - and teach him to bring them back-, It will help to strengthen the bond between the Parson and his owner while it educates, enjoys and is exercised.
