Sealyham Terrier

The Sealyham Terrier originated in Wales and was bred to hunt otters, rodents, skunks, and badgers. They are a mixture of the Welsh Corgi, Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Fox Terrier, West Highland White Terrier and the Basset Hound. This breed is named after the land that belonged to their original breeder whose name was John Edwards.

These dogs have a unique appearance. They are a short, small bodied breed with a rectangular face, long muzzle and medium sized floppy ears. These dogs have strong muscular legs which give them their speed and agility. The Sealyham Terrier's tail is naturally long but will be docked for show purposes and their coat has a messy appearance but this is the desired look for the breeds standard.

The Sealyham Terrier is a stubborn, independent yet devoted breed that thrives on being included with the family. They are well behaved around dogs, cats and people but should be monitored around small family pets such as mice, hamsters, guinea pigs etc, because they consider these prey. This breed will need a load of affection because they are happiest when they are the center of attention. The Sealyham Terrier will show no fear and will make great watchdogs as they love to alert the family with their loud bark.
