Recollect that the Almighty, who gave the dog to be companion of our pleasures and our toils, hath invested him with a nature noble and 
incapable of deceit.

The Lakeland Terrier originated in the rugged shale mountains of the Lake District of northern England. 

He is believed to have resulted from crossbreeding other terriers including the Border, Bedlington and Dandie Dinmont Terriers.  

The Lakeland Terrier was used to hunt and kill fox and other vermin that destroyed farmers' lambs and chickens. His slim lines allowed him to slip through narrow crevices in pursuit of his prey. 

This square, sturdy dog resembles the Wire Fox Terrier and can stand up to 14 1/2 inches tall at the shoulder. He has a dense, hard, double coat that can be black and tan, blue and tan, red-gray, red, wheat, liver, blue or black. The Lakeland Terrier's coat, when properly textured, will shed dirt and water.  An enthusiastic dog, the Lakeland Terrier enjoys playing and makes an entertaining family pet. He requires daily exercise.

Brave, hardy, and active, the Lakeland Terrier also makes an excellent watchdog. As with most terriers, he will stand his ground against other dogs, and will benefit from early training and socialization. He is intelligent and learns quickly.
