Traits & Characteristics

Family Life

The Biewer is very affectionate with family members and people they know well. They make good pets for families with children, however due to their small size supervision is required. Biewers are generally very good with other dogs. Dogs should always be supervised during interactions and introductions with other dogs.


Biewers are hypoallergenic and make great pets for people with allergies. They have a single coat of long silky hair. They can be high maintenance if their hair is kept long. Frequent brushing and trips to the groomer are required to keep their coat healthy and matt free.
