A curious and lively breed, Welsh Terriers are great dogs for an active family. They are great with kids and are always up for a good roughhouse. They also love playing outside or in the water. They should be well socialized and trained to make sure they are safe to be around small animals. They do best with a strong but calm owner who makes the rules clear and does not give them too much wiggle room, otherwise they may begin to think they can disobey you without repercussions.
The Welsh Terrier's jacket is black, spreading up onto the neck, down onto the tail and into the upper thighs. Their legs, quarters, and head are clear tan, which is a deep reddish brown color. Some have grizzle jackets, as well. White is allowed only as small marks on the front of the breast.
