We may be a little biased, but we think the Biewer Terrier is one of the cutest dogs on the planet. After all, who couldn’t love that endearing little face?! Let’s explore the head of the Biewer Terrier in regards to (a) expression, (b) eyes, (c) ears, (d) skull, stop and muzzle, and (e) eye rims, nose, and lips. The breed standard states the following:
• Expression is more human than that of a dog, being bright and intelligent.
• Eyes are medium sized and may be round or almond shaped with a crisp, clear countenance. Iris is as dark as possible. Blue eyes are a disqualifying fault.
• Ears are small, upright, V shaped, moderately wide set, and covered with hair except the tips being shaved. Ears are set to the back of the skull and the base is level with the eyes. A serious fault is ears not standing erect.
• Skull is slightly rounded, stop is moderate, and muzzle is one-third the length of the head.
• Eyes rims, nose, and lips are completely black. Brown or liver pigmentation is a disqualifying fault. Incomplete pigment is a serious fault.
The various components of the head are detailed in the diagram below. And that photo of our friend, Tux, perfectly demonstrates the playful personality and expression of our wonderful breed to a “T”!
