Biewer Terrier and other outside ven- ues that host breed education booths. We take every opportunity to educate the public about the Biewer Terrier and wonderful qualities that makes the Biewer so special. Adding to the many details that make the Biewer Terrier so unique is the fact that it is the first breed in the his- tory of professional dog breeding and showing, that was proven to be a pure- bred due to an extensive genetic study. Customarily, there is a strict docu- mentation of all pedigrees and breed- ings when developing a new breed. Immaculate record keeping is of the utmost importance.
