The handsome black and tan terrier of Wales, the Welsh Terrier is a smart and sensible member of the terrier family who offers owners charm and personality in abundance. Like their loyal, fearless hunting dogs, Welsh Terrier owners are strongly devoted to their happy, responsive dogs. For an experienced dog person, the Welsh is easily controlled and obedient, though, for the novice, the breed may be too bright (or stubborn) to handle. This is a practical companion dog looking for a like-minded owner to appreciate all of the dog's virtues: Welsh owners think as highly of their dogs as the dogs think of themselves. Blessed with a strong constitution and hardy health, the Welsh promises many quality years for the proper, dedicated owner.
