Welsh Terrier Information

Welsh TerrierSmart and spired, the Welsh Terrier bears many of the typical Terrier characteristic, just with a bit more common sense. He still has a strong, spirited personality and curious demeanor, but with a level of calmness not found in other Terriers.

The Welsh Terrier is an old breed closely related to the Lakeland Terrier and Airedale. This tiny guy is compact and packs a lot of strength into his 20-pound body. His rectangular head, wavy black-and-tan fur, folded ears and cute beard give him a distinctive appearance. He is generally a healthy breed, often living up to 15 years.
