Welsh Border Terrier, Cowley Terrier
The Sealyham terrier is a short-legged terrier, slightly longer than it is tall. Its body is strong, short-coupled and substantial, allowing for plenty of flexibility. This combination of short legs with a strong and flexible body allows the Sealyham to maneuver in tight quarters. Its weather-resistant coat consists of a soft, dense undercoat and a hard, wiry outer coat. This is a keen, alert and determined breed and should look the part.
One of the calmer terriers, the Sealyham is nonetheless ready for action, always happy to investigate, dig or give chase. It is often aggressive toward other dogs or pets. It is a well-mannered house dog but needs some daily exercise. It is reserved with strangers, but devoted to its family. It is stubborn and independent. It digs and barks.
