Did You Know?

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.
  • The 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.
  • The 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 hounds.
  • The 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.
