Bred to hunt badger, otter and fox, the Sealyham Terrier is a proud, determined dog with a compact, sturdy body distinguished by his bushy beard and mustache. This cheerful, charming breed has an unexpected loud bark for a small dog. Although less energetic than other terriers, the Sealyham Terrier requires daily brisk walks. His lightly shedding, wiry coat needs to be brushed twice a week and trimmed once a month.
Developed from the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, West Highland White Terrier, Wirehaired Fox Terrier, Bull Terrier, and Dandie Dinmont Terrier, the Sealyham Terrier was created by Capt. John Edwards at his Sealy Ham estate in Haverfordwest, Wales, from where the breed takes its name.
