Did You Know?

If it wasn’t for one Captain John Edwards we wouldn’t have these fearless and friendly dogs. Back on his estate in Wales in the mid-19th century, the good captain dreamt up his ideal hunting companion.

His perfect dog had to be one that would do well at hunting small game, like badgers, otters and foxes. And not only that – It had be the right size to hunt above and below ground too.

To achieve his goal, Edwards mated Basset Hounds, Bull Terriers, Fox Terriers, the West Highland White Terrier and the Dandie Dinmont Terrier.

The story goes that the Sealyham Terrier took years to develop (between 1850 and 1891, to be exact). If you’d ever owned one of these loving and attentive dogs, you’ll know it was well worth the wait.
