High-intelligence, lively personality and spirited attitude are all common characteristics of the terrier group. Historically used to hunt small burrowing animals, these dogs are fast and love to dig. This group is also highly diverse and includes breeds such as the West Highland Terrier, the Rat Terrier, the American Pit Bull Terrier and mixes of everything in between. With the diversity of breeds also comes a wide-range of appearances: long to short coats, large to small dogs. Would you consider adopting a feisty, but lovable, terrier?
