BEDLINGTON TERRIER

The first Bedlington Terrier was whelped around 1825 in the country of Northumberland, England. Graceful and lithe in appearance, the Bedlington Terrier has a big heart and loveable nature. Best recognized for its distinctive coat giving him the appearance of a lamb, the Bedlington Terrier is said to have the "Head of a lamb and heart of a lion". The Bedlington was developed for its courage and ability to hunt a variety of vermin by descending underground to the animal's lair or by running down its prey above ground. The Bedlington's gracefully shaped body lends to great speed and endurance.
