Lakeland Terrier

Lakeland Terrier


Height: 14-15 inches

Weight: 15-17 lbs.

Life Span: 14-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
Lakelands are fearless, gregarious, and loyal companions. They are friendly with family members--though they may guard their toys and food bowls--but they may be suspicious of strangers and scrappy around other dogs.

They are usually fine around familiar cats but may need to be watched around cats outdoors and other small animals. They enjoy the company of children, especially those who are at least eight years old and gentle.

If left alone for long periods they may develop behavioral problems, such as excessive barking, digging, and dominance and territory issues.

Appearance
The Lakeland's distinctive ears fold forward; it also has characteristic bushy eyebrows, a substantial beard, and a mustache. The outercoat is short, hard, and wiry; the undercoat is close to the skin and soft.

Coat color is blue, black, liver, red, or wheaten. The saddle may be black, liver, blue, or shades of grizzle.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Lakeland terriers need to be brushed and combed twice a week. They should be allowed to romp in a secured area and taken on vigorous daily walks.

Origins
The Lakeland terrier was originally bred in the 18th century in the rugged shale mountains of England's Northern Lake District to "bolt" (drive out), catch, and kill the foxes that preyed on farmers' livestock.

Breed-related health concerns: Legg-Perthes disease, undescended testicles.
