The Sealyham Terrier.....
... is a proud, compact
sturdy little dog that makes an ideal
companion for young and old in today's
modern world, adapting well to both city
and country living. He expects the
attention which he considers his due and
enjoys a brisk walk to investigate the
new smells in the neighborhood. He is
very inquisitive and a delightful clown
and surveys the world with supreme
self-confidence and good humor.
Sealyhams are most
charming and lovable, giving their
owners endless love and devotion. While
devoted to his family, he is never
servile, even when being disciplined. He
will rarely, if ever, cower, for he is
possessed with an indomitable spirit and
immense pride. He owns, he is not owned
by his family. Once he has taken his
place in the household, he is virtually
assured of equal status.
The Sealyham's temperament
has remained one of his most distinctive
traits -- friendly and lovable, responsive
to human contacts, a constant, loyal and
devoted companion. Having had one Sealyham
in a home is to be satisfied with no other
breed, and that is the finest tribute that
can be paid to any breed.
- The Sealyham Terrier was originally
bred in Wales.
English Kennel Club first recognized
the Sealyham breed in 1910 when
Sealyhams were first shown in a Kennel
Club sponsored Championship dog Show.
- The Sealyham Terrier was recognized
by the AKC in 1911.
Sealyham Terrier derives its name from
Sealy Ham, Haverfordwest, Wales, the
estate of Captain John Edwards, who
developed from obscure ancestry a
strain of dogs noted for their prowess
in quarrying badger, fox and otter.
- Sources believe the Sealyham was
produced from crosses between the
Corgi, Dandie Dinmont, West Highland
White, Wire-Haired Fox Terriers, the
Bull Terrier and perhaps even some
Sealyham's first recorded show
appearance was in 1903 at a local
affair in Wales and the breed was
first imported to the U.S. in 1911.
