30 Adorable Photos of Terriers That Will Make You Want to Get One
The world of terriers is so wide and they come in a variety of looks, shapes, colors, and personalities, but they all have something in common. Terriers are a specific breed that were bred to hunt and dig, so don’t be too surprised if your terrier remodels your garden every now and then. Although most of the terrier breeds were working dogs at some point, it doesn’t stop them from being playful, easygoing and fun-loving.
