Overview
Originating in England during the 18th century, this breed was used by gypsies as a vermin hunter and small game retriever. They are often affectionately referred to as the "gypsy dog". The Bedlington Terrier is often described as a dog with the heart of a lion and the head of a lamb due to their unique appearance and assertive demeanor.
Character
This well-balanced breed is mild and gentle, never shy or nervous. They have immense energy, courage, and endurance. The Bedlington Terrier is full of confidence, is spirited, and quite muscular. They have strong sporting instincts and also make an intelligent and amiable companion.

Does your Bedlington Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Bedlington Terriers have an affectionate personality. They are cheerful, playful, lively, and loyal. This breed is deeply devoted to their family, and loving with considerate and well-behaved children. They will get along with cats and other animals they have been raised with, but will not tolerate dominating or threatening behavior. Despite their gentle appearance it is important to remember that the Bedlington Terrier is a terrier breed. If they are challenged they are ferocious and terrifying fighters. They are fairly friendly with strangers. They make excellent watchdogs as they are extremely protective of their family and will alert them to danger and visitors.
Care
This is a high maintenance breed. They require professional specialized clipping every six weeks. They must be brushed and combed on a daily basis. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. The Bedlington Terrier is prone to a serious inherited liver problem known as Copper Storage Disease. They also have a tendency for such health issues as thyroid problems, cataracts, and kidney disease.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Bedlington Terrier is a very distinctive breed. The coat is an interesting and unusual mixture of both soft and hard hair. The body coat is curly, crisp, and lint-like in texture. There is a fringe of silky hair on the tips of the ears. This thick double coat breed comes in blue, sandy, or liver. They are non-shedding.
Training
The Bedlington Terrier can be independent, skittish, and quite difficult to train. They benefit from early socialization, particularly with cats and other pets. Intensive obedience training is crucial as this breed has a tendency to be destructive and bark excessively. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training. The Bedlington Terrier thrives on human companionship and is trained best with firm, loving and consistent guidance. They excel in agility, obedience, and flyball. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Bedlington Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Bedlington Terriers are an exceedingly active breed that requires a great deal of exercise and stimulation. They are fairly active indoors and benefit from family play sessions. They are excellent walking companions provided they are securely leashed. They enjoy outdoor play provided the yard is securely fenced and they are supervised. This breed is highly prone to digging. The Bedlington Terrier will do okay in an apartment if they are given sufficient exercise. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Are there Bedlington Terrier Breeders that will sell puppies at pet price vs show quality?

A breeder will choose the amount they sell their puppies based off of the quality of the puppy and the puppy's pedigree. You want a breeder to want the best for their pups, you want them to have healthy genes, and conformation shows are one of the ways to make sure that their lines are strong and go with the standard of the breed. It does not hurt to ask a breeder if they will drop the price a little for a puppy that is just going to be a pet, but remember, it costs a lot to raise a healthy, well-bred litter of puppies.
