This dog is quiet and likes to run and chase small animals. They should not live outside.
This smaller sheep look-alike originated in the late 1700s in England. This agile game-hunting terrier was bred to hunt rats, badgers, otters and other vermin. Its protective instincts make him cautious around strangers. Toward the family, they are companionable, loyal, and quiet. Bedlingtons are also playful and athletic so they do best with active and outdoorsy people or families with older children. Bedlington Terriers require a good long walk or vigorous play daily. These dogs shed very little and grooming is easy. Their coats should be combed about 1-2 times per week and trimmed every other month.
