Lancashire Heeler Puppies
Description: Looking like a mix between the Manchester Terrier and the Welsh Corgi, the Lancashire Heeler is said to be relative to these. They are short legged, and quite long in body. The breed has large prick ears that stand on end when listening intently. They are excellent herding and heeling dogs, which is what they were originally used for. Lancashire Heelers have such strong herding instincts that one owner reported her Lancashire trying to herd the cattle on TV! Lancashire Terriers are a happy breed, enjoying the company of family and get along well with other pets. They make an affectionate breed, although very good at hunting vermin and rabbits. Lancashire Heelers are alert, energetic, and fun - making them a pleasant and positive companion. An interesting fact about this breed is that when they are content and happy, they have been known to give the "Heeler smile", in which the dog may sit back, draw back their lips and form what looks like a smile!

Care and Exercise:
Lancashire Terriers need free running space or half an hour to an hour
walks per day. They should be given time to play and explore off the leash.

coat sheds a couple times per year, and baths should be given at this time.
This will help with the shedding. Grooming is minimal on this breed. They should
be brushed every once in a while to keep the coat looking shiny. They can develop
a mane in cold weather.
