A little about Welsh Terrier

A true Terrier, this friendly breed rarely gets tired. They can be stubborn but make for lively companions. They are well suited to active family environments, however, their notably boisterous disposition may overwhelm young children. They have a high prey drive, making households with other small pets unsuitable for this mischievous breed. 



Welsh Terriers can experience complications due to health issues such as; Dental disease, Skin allergies, Glaucoma, Cataracts, Primary Lens Luxation (PLL), Patellar Luxation, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, Mitral Valve disease, Pulmonic Stenosis, Epilepsy, and Deafness
