The Sealyham Terrier 

The Sealyham Terrier is a rare Welsh breed of small to medium-sized terrier that originated in Wales as a working dog. It is principally a white-bodied, rough-coated breed, developed in the mid to late 19th century by Captain John Edwardes at Sealyham House, Pembrokeshire.

  •  Temperament:Alert, Outgoing, Sense Of Humour

  • Height: 10.5 inches

  • Weight: 11kg-13kg (male), slightly less (females)

  • Life Expectancy: 12-14 years

  • Group: Terrier Group 

Sealys are not big enough to be considered medium-sized dogs, but they stand among the strongest and most substantial of what we think of as small dogs.

A typical Sealy is well-muscled, built low to ground, and moves easily with long, determined strides. The weatherproof coat is predominantly white, and a long, broad head is furnished with lavish facial hair.

Despite their rep as the bruiser among short-legged terriers, Sealys are cute, funny, affectionate, outgoing, and trainable, if a bit stubborn. Their alertness and a big-dog bark make Sealys excellent watchdogs. Blessed with an adaptable nature, Sealys are amenable to city dwelling or country life. -

Sybil joined Aimfor in January 2019 after a 5 year wait.  We have had some fun already, travelling to most Royals this year to get this rare breed out and about.  She had a lovely Baby in Group win under a Terrier Specialist whom had the breed in the past.  Aimfor is excited to be part of breeders bringing this sweet goofball of a Terrier back.  Shown sparingly apart from big shows she is a few points shy of her Aus title going into lockdown for the COVID-19.
