Welsh Terrier Description

The Welsh Terrier is a sturdy, compact terrier with fairly long legs, their head is long and rectangular in shape. They have bushy eyebrows, a moustache and a beard. Their ears are small and highly set upon the dog’s head; they are triangular and folded forwards. The tail is highly set and their coat is wiry and short and is black and tan. This breed of dog is often thought of as a miniaturised Airedale Terrier as apart from the obvious size difference they look very similar.

Welsh Terrier Character

Welsh Terriers are lively and always ready to run and play, they are happy little dogs and love children but, as with most terrier breeds, care should be taken when it comes to them being around smaller animals. They are brave dogs but too friendly to be taken seriously as a watchdog! They have high levels of energy and require a lot of exercise, Welsh Terriers are intelligent but this is coupled with a tendency to want to be in charge so training can be challenging. Generally this breed enjoys swimming, they make good family dogs.
