There are only about a handful dog breeds native to Brazil, and even though the Brazilian Terrier is rare outside of Brazil, it is one of the most popular in its homeland. The average Brazilian Terrier weighs between 15 and 22 lbs, and a Medium PlexiDor dog door would be a perfect choice.

This breed stems back to the 1800s when Jack Russell terriers arrived to Brazil from Europe. They were bred with Miniature Pinschers, Chihuahuas, and possibly other smaller dog breeds. This resulted in an alert and energetic dog that is often used for vermin control.

Brazilian Terriers hunt either alone or in a group, and a unique form of teamwork can be seen when they hunt together – the dogs surround their prey.

Brazilian Terriers are known for being intelligent and alert with an abundance of energy. They love to play, bark, dig, bark, romp around, and dig some more. Given the chance they also like to chase other small animals.

Taking their high energy level and intelligence into account, this is a breed that requires both mental and physical activity. If you want a companion that is up for hiking, running, power walking, and playing, this might be a perfect choice.

Brazilian Terriers are generally healthy and often live up to 15 years. They are considered easy to train, but owners should be aware of their high energy level.

The PlexiDor Medium is the right size dog door for Brazilian Terriers.
