Overview
The Sealyham Terrier originated in Wales in the middle of the 19th century. They were bred to be a sporting dog of courage and flexibility to exterminate vermin. This breed is relatively uncommon and quite rare in the United States. Sealyham Terriers have a devoted following and is one of the calmest of the terriers.

Temperament
The Sealyham Terrier is highly intelligent and affectionate. They are extremely loyal, independent, and spirited. They are not rambunctious as is usually a trait of the terrier breed. They do best with older considerate children. They are somewhat reserved with strangers. They typically get along well with other dogs they know, but are aggressive to dogs they don't know. The Sealyham Terrier is very vocal and makes a good watchdog. They thrive on being an integral part of the family.
Care
The Sealyham Terrier requires professional trimming and stripping of the coat. They need to be brushed twice weekly to prevent mats from forming. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. Dry shampoo as needed. This breed does best in cooler climates. Sealyham Terriers have very few health problems. They are allergic to fleas, are prone to deafness, and may have skin sensitivities.
Coat
The Sealyham Terrier has a harsh, coarse, and straight double coat that is water resistant. The outer coat is hard and wiry, while the under coat is soft and dense. The coat is all white, or may have lemon, tan, or badger markings on the head and ears. The Sealyham is a very minimal shedder.
Training
The Sealyham Terrier has a tendency to be difficult to train. They are quick to learn, but may try to undermine their master's authority. They do well with early socialization and obedience training.

What's the cost of a full bred Sealyham Terrier?

Since the Sealyham Terrier is so rare, it is hard to put an actual price on a puppy. Every breeder is different and will sell their puppies accordingly towards the amount of work they have put into their breeding program, their dam and their sire. But I would suggest that the average cost of a puppy would be around $2000.00 - $2500.00 per puppy.

Is there a Sealyham Terrier rescue group?

Google American Sealyham Terrier Club and up at the very top you will see "Rescue/SFF which stands for Sealyham Forever Fnd." The ASTC is extremely active in rescuing any Sealyham Terrier that is either being bred indiscriminately or where puppies are ending up in puppy mills. We LOVE the breed. The name "Silly-Ham" seems much more appropriate for this guys. Another good website to go on for general Sealy health questions is "Sealy Health Guard".

We adopted our Sealyham Terrier from an animal shelter in San Diego County. Not being familiar with the breed, we thought our Sealy was some sort of Terrier mix. She is a true Sealy in temperament and look. Our Sealy was picked up as a stray. A truly delightful breed.

The Sealyham Terrier is known as a very healthy breed of dog without any common health problems. If your dog is going deaf and old age is not a consideration as to why, it is time for a vet visit.

Our Sealy died 4 years ago. She became deaf and then lost her site. She was not well bread as her back was operated on when she was two. I've talked to a breeder in Granville, OH. She told me that about 7 years ago they developed a test for blindness and are not able to breed dogs that will not have that problem. She is from CA but lives on a farm so that the dogs can run and play. She also breeds Scottish Terriers. At the time we adopted Emily Rose With The Button Nose we also had a Scottie of 10 years; after Emily was about 10 years we adopted another Scottie puppy (Mac Gregor). We moved to Cincy about 9 years ago. In the first two weeks, both Emily and Mac escaped. I was scared as it was getting dark. In a few minutes, the WHOLE street was also looking. Where was Emily Rose--she was at the front door waiting to get in. Mac accompanied a neighbor into the garage and kitchen to help them unload their groceries. Emily Rose was the most lovable, smart (she also knew all parts of her body), kind to all. I think she was much easier to train than MacG and Mac Dougall. I will be looking for a Sealy in 2017. I'm still using a cane and need to be in better shape.
