Japanese Terrier

The Japanese Terrier, also known as the Nihon Teria, is a breed of dog that originated in Japan. This is a rare and relatively unknown breed outside of its country of origin. The Japanese Terrier is characterized by its elegant appearance, lively personality and loyalty to its family.

The Japanese Terrier is small to medium in size, 30 to 37 centimeters, with a compact and well-muscled build. It has a proportionate head with a flat skull, short muzzle and almond-shaped eyes which give it an alert and intelligent expression. Its ears are usually medium sized, erect and tilted forward.

The coat of the Japanese Terrier is smooth, short and dense. Common colors for this breed are white, black and tan, and tricolor (white, black and tan). The white coat is the most common and may be accompanied by black spots or black marks on the body.

In terms of personality, the Japanese Terrier is renowned for its energetic, lively and mischievous temperament. He is intelligent, attentive and eager to please his owner. The Japanese Terrier is generally loyal to its family and can be reserved with strangers, making it a good watchdog. He also has an inquisitive nature and can be sociable with other well-socialized dogs.

When it comes to care, the Japanese Terrier needs regular grooming to keep their coat in good condition. Weekly brushing is usually sufficient to remove dead hair and keep the coat clean. The ears should also be checked and cleaned regularly to prevent infections.
