FCI Terrier Group
The Terrier Group is a designation used by most all-breed dog registries (or kennel clubs) for a Group of dog breeds consisting almost entirely of terriers. See Terrier Group for information related to most kennel clubs.
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) additionally divides groups into subgroups, which the other main English-speaking kennel clubs do not. The FCI Terrier Group is made up of four different sections.
- Section 1 : Large and medium-sized Terriers
- Section 2 : Small-sized Terriers
- Section 3 : Bull type Terriers
- Section 4 : Toy Terriers
The FCI sorts the breeds in the group by section and country of origin as follows:
... Australia Australian Silky Terrier 2 ... Great Britain English Toy Terrier (Black Tan) Yorkshire Terrier 3 ... Toy Fox Terrier ...
Famous quotes containing the word group:
“If the Russians have gone too far in subjecting the child and his peer group to conformity to a single set of values imposed by the adult society, perhaps we have reached the point of diminishing returns in allowing excessive autonomy and in failing to utilize the constructive potential of the peer group in developing social responsibility and consideration for others.”
—Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)
