Dog Breed's Main Info
The Breed's History:
Although the history of the Welsh Terrier is not completely clear, we can ascertain from paintings and prints that the breed is quite old and may have been one of the first Terriers.
He was originally known as the Black-and-Tan Wire Haired Terrier or the Old English Terrier. Although associated with Wales, he lived in many parts of England during the 19th century. He was commonly used to hunt foxes, otters, and badgers, and he excelled at eradicating vermin.
He was commonly shown and categorized as an Old English Terrier, a category under which many Terrier breeds were classified. It wasn't until 1885 that he was classified as a Welsh Terrier by the Kennel Club of England.
Welsh Terriers began arriving in the United States in 1888, though their importation was erratic. By 1901, however, the Welsh Terrier finally established a footing in the United States, and his popularity grew at a steady pace.
