Sealyham Terrier

General Description

The Sealyham Terrier dog breed was originally bred to hunt otters, foxes, and badgers. Today, they are primarily companion dogs and a good choice for novice pet parents.

Character and Temperament

Friendly, Even Tempered, Fearless, Alert, Calm

Exercise

One hour per day

Grooming

Sealyham Terriers have weather-resistant, medium-long double coats. The undercoat is dense and soft, while the top coat is hard and wiry. The hair around the face and muzzle is very long, compared to the rest of the coat. Sealies are all white, although some have lemon, tan, or badger markings on the head and ears.

Origin

Sealyham Terriers originated in Wales and are thought to have been developed through judicious crosses with the now-extinct small white Cheshire terrier, Corgis, Dandie Dinmont Terriers, West Highland White Terriers, Wirehaired Fox Terriers, and Bull Terriers.
