Bedlington Terrier

The Bedlington Terrier was originally known as the Rothbury Terrier, after the district of Rothbury on the English border. Around 1825, the name was changed to the Bedlington Terrier after the Bedlington Mine, where it was used by the miners to hunt and kill vermin. Some of its ancestors are the Dandie Dinmont the Otterhound, and the Whippet.

General appearance

At first glance, the Bedlington has a lamb-like appearance, with its soft curly coat and pear-shaped head. The muzzle is strong and flat, and the ears are low-set and triangular in shape. The small and deep-set eyes are almond in shape, and tend to colour with the coat, with the blue having the darkest eyes, and a sandy or tan coat having corresponding hazel eyes, as well as lighter eye rims. The eyes should have a bright and alert expression. The coat comes in shades of blue, sandy, tan, blue and tan, sandy and tan, and liver and tan. There may be tan markings on the chest, legs, and hindquarters, as well as in spots over the eyes - this is perfectly acceptable.Read more about the Bedlington Terrier description of breed...
