Get to know the Brazilian Terrier
All you need to know about the breed
If eyes say anything about disposition, then the Brazilian Terrier’s perky, curious expression is a solid tell that these dogs have assertive, playful personalities. They also have no fear and make excellent guard dogs ever ready to bark the alert when a stranger approaches.
But because the Brazilian Terrier can be headstrong, you’ll want to make it clear that you’re running the show and that, once alerted, you’ll take it from there. The same applies to all aspects of living with this breed; but the good news is that, with solid training, this tendency can be managed so they make affectionate and deeply loyal companions. Still, if you’re planning to raise a Brazilian Terrier alongside younger children, it’s important to educate both to ensure the well-being of all.
Now, about that bark. Brazilian Terriers like to use it, whether it’s to announce an arrival or request your attention. For a potential owner, it’s worth considering that they may not be ideally suited to life in an apartment building where close neighbours may not appreciate a Brazilian Terrier soundtrack. Also, these dogs have energy to spare – both mental and physical – and it’s important they’re given the opportunity to spend it. But when these needs are sufficiently met, your Brazilian Terrier will be content to enjoy relaxing moments with you at home.
