The Bedlington Terrier originated in a small mining town of Bedlington, Northumberland in North East England. They were originally bred to hunt vermin, but has since been used in racing, numerous dog sports, conformation shows, and as a companion dog. They’re closely related to the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Whippet and Otterhound. The Bedlington’s appearance is often compared to a lamb due to their fleecy coat and pear-shaped head. They are a great dog for an active family looking for a lively and loyal companion.
