The Sealyham Terrier was bred in late-19th-century Britain for killing badgers & otters. It was selectively bred to be willing to work above or below ground, and in water, using a variety of co-workers. The Sealyham adapts well to city life in any climate, but requires conscientious training to tolerate other dogs & strangers. It is no longer used for its original purpose & now relies on people who enjoy its goofy, independent character as a companion.
the sealyham is one of the rarest dogs in the uk now. in spite of its friendly, kind nature, it's simply been forgotten and the remaining few breeder's prices don't help. We have one of these... its a yappy pain in the ass
