The spunky, outgoing Welsh Terrier is characterized by his long, rectangular head with a bearded muzzle and bushy eyebrows. An ideal companion and watchdog, he is playful and happy, yet intelligent and attentive. The energetic Welsh Terrier requires a great deal of exercise and is perfect for an active family. His coarse coat should be plucked several times a year, and his facial hair needs to be combed twice weekly.
