The Brazilian Terrier stands around 14-16 in (35.5-40.5cm) at the withers.
The Brazilian Terrier's appearance is typical of dogs descended from fox terrier
types: the short coat is tri-color (white with markings in two other colors;
permissible colors are black, tan, brown and blue). Their skull is flat and
wedge-shaped, with folded ears. The tail of the Brazilian Terrier may be docked
or natural. It weight can be between 14-20lbs (6.5-9kg).
These dogs are alert, intelligent and playful with stronger than average hunting instincts. The Brazilian Terrier must be kept active and occupied, becoming destructive or restless if bored.
