The Welsh Terrier looks like a small Airedale Terrier; it is compact and rugged-looking, with a wiry coat. The head is long, flat and rectangular, with bushy eyebrows, mustache and beard. This breed was originally developed in Wales to hunt otter, fox and badger in their dens and also to hunt with hounds in packs. It is an affectionate and loyal little dog; it makes an excellent family companion.


Black & tan and grizzle. Puppies are born all black. The extremities then lighten gradually, leaving a black "jacket."


Harsh, wiry coat. It needs to have its coat plucked two, three, or more times a year depending upon the condition of the coat. It also requires grooming with a brush and comb a number of times each week. This breed sheds little to no hair.
