Welsh Terrier - Guide to Welsh Terriers

Description: The Welsh Terrier is a medium sized, compact and sturdy dog with a lively spirit. While the coat is described as black and tan, it really looks like a tan coat with a black jacket. The dense and wiry top coat is waterproof and the soft and thick undercoat provides insulation. The Welsh Terrier is an old breed dating back hundreds of years ago and has barely changed at all during this time making it one of the oldest pure bred terriers.
