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 a loveable nature. Best recognized for its distinctive coat which gives 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.
