Lakeland Terrier

The Lakeland Terrier originated in England and was bred to hunt down foxes and badgers. The plan was to kill them while they hide in their den as opposed to chasing the prey out of the den and tackling them. They are a mixture of the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, the Old English Black and Tan Terrier and the Border Terrier.

This breed has a great resemblance to the Airedale Terrier. Their body is muscular and athletic giving them great agility and strength while on the hunt. They have a long muzzle and medium sized triangular floppy ears that prick upward and forwards. The Lakeland Terrier has a naturally long tail but will be docked for show purposes and they have long strong legs that give them their quick speed.

The Lakeland Terrier is a responsive, intelligent breed that thrives on attention from their owners. They will make great family pets because they adore kids and get along well with other dogs. Smaller family pets will need to be raised with these dogs as puppies so they become comfortable around them as adults. The Lakeland Terrier is an energetic and outgoing dog but they will be more aloof around people they haven't met yet. Upon a couple of meetings they will become much more friendly.
