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.

Color: The color of the Welsh Terrier's coat is black and tan.

These type dogs need to be properly raised which means they need early and consistent socialization and training -and- their owner must be able to have strong leadership skills.
