Lakeland Terrier Puppies
Description: Lakeland Terriers are a small, workman-like dog of square, sturdy build who resemble the wire fox terrier. They are thought to be the exact copy of the Airedale Terrier, miniaturized. They have short drop ears that are round on the ends, and quite a face with facial hair. They have rather narrow bodies, but deep chests. They are smaller dogs, but with the same amount of ability as any bigger dog. Lakeland Terriers generally like everyone they meet and can distinguish friends from strangers. They are good watch dogs, and good guard dogs for their size. They are lively, intelligent and stubborn. Lakeland Terriers are level headed and of sound temperament. The Lakeland Terrier is an enthusiastic breed who enjoys playing with adults or children and has a way of getting its own way, making them an entertaining pet.
