The Sealyham Terrier was bred from the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, the Wirehaired Fox Terrier, the Bull Terrier and the West Highland White Terrier. His name came from Captain John Edwards’ estate, Sealy Ham, Haverfordwest, Wales who developed the breed to hunt otter, fox and badger.
Even though he’s small, he’s a true terrier, full of determination and power.
His weather-resistant, wiry, double white coat is essential to distinguish him from the animals he chases to ground. He may have badger, lemon or tan marks on his ears and head. He’s great in Earthdog events and is a terrific pet. He’s inquisitive and charming but needs to be kept occupied. The farm is his ideal home but he can live anywhere as long as he gets a brisk walk daily. His coat needs to be combed and brushed twice each week to stop matting and he needs a trim once a month. He stands at 10.5 inches in height.
