Sealyham Terrier

The Sealyham Terrier is a breed of dog that was originally bred to hunt badgers, foxes and otters. These dogs that are very affectionate and these days are first and foremost companion dogs. They are a terrific choice for a beginner terrier owner.

History

This breed gets its name from Sealyham, which is the estate of the late Captain John Tucker in Wales. They were very popular in England at the beginning of the 20th century. The year 1903 marked the first time they appeared in a show ring in Britain and the first Sealyham Terrier Club was started in 1908. Although known as an excellent dog for a companion, this breed has not been particularly popular with the general public and is only ranked 149th out of 155 breeds recognised by the American Kennel Club. Since making their show debut in California in 1911, they have won many prizes but are still considered a rare breed.
