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.

The Lakeland Terrier is one of the oldest working terrier breeds, having been developed in Cumberland County, England, in the 1800s. The breed descended from the Welsh Terrier, Wire Fox Terrier, Border Terrier, Bedlington Terrier, and Dandie Dinmont Terrier.
