Sealyham Terrier Puppies
Description: The Sealyham Terrier is the embodiment of power and determination, ever keen and alert, yet free from clumsiness. Resembling the wire fox terrier, they are playful, with an eager to please, outgoing, friendly attitude. They also have their own sense of humor and like many terriers make delightful companions. Rather aggressive in the past, Sealyham Terriers have mellowed out into a hardworking, robust, and resilient breed. They can be willful and stubborn but they are loyal to their family. Making a tireless companion, Sealyham Terriers are sometimes known as the couch potato as they require less exercise than most terriers. On the other hand, however, if the Sealyham sees another animal it will most likely go after it. They were bred to hunt badgers, foxes, skunks and other prey, and therefore have a strong hunting urge. Sealyham Terriers can be rather bossy, and therefore should be trained to know who or what they can and cannot go after. They do not require a large amount of space, as they are short and stocky. They have rather long bodies, a long face, and a stubby tail that can be docked. Their ears are level with the rest of their head and form triangles. They come in mostly white, with lemon, brown, blue or badger pied markings on the head and ears. Sealyham Terriers are relatively long-lived animals, and require a firm owner who will not spoil them.
