Welsh Terriers Game, Sporting Dogs
The Welsh Terrier is descended directly from the Old English Terrier, otherwise known as the Black and Tan Terrier which was established in the late 1730s. Early sporting prints of couples of rough coated black and tans, clearly show the likeness to the present day Welsh Terrier. Then, he was use extensively in his native land, Wales, for hunting otter, fox and badger, aptitudes
and hunting instincts he has never lost. Although he looks like a miniature Airedale, the Welsh is definitely his own breed. The name is often misspelled Welch Terrier.
A Welsh Terrier is a sturdy, compact, rugged dog, medium size, and sports a wire-textured jacket, black and tan in color, or grizzle, is also acceptable. They are very friendly, and outgoing
with people, always alert, aware, and spirited, but exhibiting self control. Overly aggressive behavior, or shyness is not typical of this breed. Welsh Terrier puppies are adorable, with their little whiskered faces and frisky loving curiosity. Puppies are eager to learn and please, and respond well to training. These dogs do shed a bit, needing some weekly grooming. They are active dogs needing lots of exercise at least three times a day. Welsh Terriers are excellent family pets, good with children and excellent watchdogs.
