Lakeland Terrier Information

Lakeland TerrierThe Lakeland Terrier is one of the oldest working Terrier breeds still in existence today. Not as popular as most of his other Terrier counterparts, the Lakeland certainly is a confident, affectionate dog ready to join any family.

This breed stands out for their dense, wiry coat that can be many different colors including black, blue, liver, red and wheaten. You’ll see they have a long patch of hair around his mouth that looks like a beard. Their natural instincts lead them to chase vermin or dig up the yard, so make sure you watch them outside!
