Bedlington Terrier


(Terrier Group)

"Often used for therapy work because of their sensitivity to people and their soft, flossy, lamblike coats, Bedlington Terriers tend to be calmer, quieter, and more laid-back than some terriers...

"... an excellent watch dog...

"... has a linty, non-shedding coat...

"They have a unique combination of terrier and hound temperament... they are not high-strung and more content to lie quietly on the couch...

"Their independence makes them a little bit difficult to train, but their unique adoration for humans counterbalances that...

"The hound-like calm combined with the terrier-like joy make a Bedlington" (Adamson, Eve. "Terrier in Sheep's Clothing." Dog Fancy, August 2003, pp. 52-55).
