'The Welsh Terrier' is claimed to be the oldest existing dog breed in the UK. The Welsh Terrier was originally known as the Old English Terrier or Black-and-Tan Wire Haired Terrier. Welsh Terriers' native home is Wales, where they were used extensively as a Sporting dog and renowned for hunting badger, fox, and otter. Friendly and spirited; they need to have their coat plucked several times a year and their bushy facial hair should be combed twice a week.

My childhood favorite dog was Welsh terrier named Otto McNear. I loved him so!
