The affectionate, jolly Lakeland Terrier is a small, hardy English dog bred to protect sheep from fox. His dense, wiry coat is longer on the legs and muzzle, which gives him a distinct beard-like appearance. Around people, this dog has a confident quiet demeanor, but he can be bold and aggressive toward other dogs. A lively, feisty breed, the Lakeland Terrier is an ideal fit for active families.
