Who are you guys?

16 year old welsh terrier

The Welsh Terrier is a handsome Black & Tan dog; lots of personality and a fun loving spirit.

Super great family companion. ideal size for a great companion. Small enough to lift if needed, but agile enough to jump in the car and very athletic. Always looking for adventure, like most Terriers, and loves and adores his family. Welsh Love kids and People in general.

Non Shed Hypo Allergenic, Low Dander producer. Almost any one with allergies can be safe with this breed. Coat is easy to brush weekly, and Groom every 6-8 wks. Grooming options include Natural Teddy Bear Look or more tailored Terrier Groom. This is accomplished with a 5 F blade on the body and 10 blade on ears. *Hand stripping is not needed unless you are actively showing. Taking a photo to your groomer will greatly help and getting a groomer with Terrier experience is a must as well.

Welsh are active, happy dogs. They do best in a home with fenced yard, however if you live in an apartment and are willing to walk for exercise, that's fine too! They love to travel and go for car rides, happiest when a companion that goes everywhere the family goes!

Welsh Terriers are very intelligent and can be taught almost anything, however they do have a somewhat stubborn side and can be strong willed. Firm assertive training and being constant in leadership role is needed. They are a wonderful breed, but must know you are the pack leader, or they will accept the role. and take over the household.

Welsh Terriers love to chase varmint, squirrels and rabbits, and love the smells and sounds of outdoors. If you have a fenced enclosure or a safe acreage, then you can allow to be free. However if in the city, a leash at all times is needed. Impulsive excitement can cause them to dart off after a chase or smell and this can be dangerous.

Non Shed & Hypo Allergenic are extreme plus also! Grooming varies from every 6 -12 wks, depending on the look you prefer. Tailored and Sharp show look, or Scruffy Natural look. Weekly brushing and a monthly bath with gentle shampoo is all they need to stay in good condition. Striping the coat can be done, and is required in showing to keep the coat the correct texture and retain color clarity. In pets, clippers are used to create the same look with correct blade choices. My favorites are 5 for body 10 for ears.

K -9 Social Skill & Interaction is very much necessary after you take a puppy home. Do NOT isolate the puppy from other dogs. It needs interaction to remain in tune with K9 connection. Terriers who are isolated and live only with people, forget how to be Dog Friendly. Do your part, find Playmates that are good disposition and all sizes; good nature is a must. This insures that your terrier will always look forward to play and interacting with other dogs, rather than being a bully or aggressive towards other dogs. Most important time 2-12 months. Puppy Kindergarten is recommended at 16 wks. This is the ideal age for learning and doing things your way. Six months plus is the teenager stage and sometimes a little more independent and head strong. I recommend Ceasar Milan CD Dog Whisperer to get in tune to the “Leader of the Pack” method of training. because Terriers can be head strong and somewhat stubborn. The key to success is being the Leader and starting young with the process. Ceasar's theory and skills with body language is key to success. Have fun in Training and your dog will enjoy and excel.

Male or Female debate is the most asked question I get. In my experience one is not better than another. Its like our kids, no two are quite alike, each has individual traits and quirks that make him Unique. Sex is not responsible for smarter, sweeter or easier to train. Neutering & Spaying is best for any pet. So choose the puppy NOT the sex.

Mature size will be 20-24 lbs; males being slightly larger.

Safe Shipping $250; includes Crate for Travel & Training, Insurance and Air Fare.
Delivery if you live in Central U.S. States we will consider driving to meet you.

Just wanted to give you an update on Arlo as he is almost nearing his first birthday (8/15).

He is such a sweet, loving, and happy puppy (he's always smiling in his pictures).He has so much energy too, even after our outings, play groups, and runs, he could still play for hours.We couldn't have asked for a better dog.

I've attached some pictures of Arlo on the go around NYC.

I also wanted to inquire about getting Arlo a sister or brother Welshie.I wanted to know what you thought would be best for him and his personality (i.e. very playful and energetic).

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Joy!

I wanted to send you pictures of Lulu's changes (known as Maggie to you) as she has grown. We love this spunky little girl like crazy! She is a mess and has brought so much joy to our life already. Let us know if you ever have any "clearance" wire fox terriers because of their markings. We love Lulu's white spots! She has white throughout her saddle too but we love her just how she is! Thank you!

Wanted to send you a couple of pictures of Sammy bringing us the news paper, she started doing this all on her own, she is so proud that she got the paper.These pictures are taken from the back patio, she has to go around to the front to get the paper. Last week we had an invisible fence put in, she caught on to this very fast.

First I must say “thank you”. I had no idea how truly sad I was over missing my “Molly” until Kelly showed up with “Bailey”. I was totally and thoroughly surprised. We had not completely decided that we would actually get another dog. But I am sure glad that Kelly made the decision to get her.

Bailey is such a cool puppy with a mind and determination all of her own! Since her arrival there has not been a dull moment. All of the traits that a “welshie” is supposed to have she definitely does.

Thought that you'd be interested in how Dylan is doing now that he is two years old. He has become a great companion for my wife and me and provides a lot entertainment and fun for us (and he has fun, too). The following are a couple of photos from one of the terrier races he competed in at the Missouri Earth Dog Memorial Day Bash, he's the one with the orange muzzle and yellow collar. He was racing against several border terriers and a westie. In the race in the pictures he finished 2nd, but he also had a couple of first place finishes in earlier races. The Bash event attracts mostly Jack Russel's but I had several Jack owners ask me where we got Dylan because they wanted to have an energetic terrier that is not so "out-of-control" like a lot of Jacks tend to be. I passed on your kennel's name to them.

Hello Joy!
I am forwarding to you a new picture of Gracie Mae who is cuddling with her best friend Kelso, our 80 lb. Yellow Lab. ( He is actually white). Gracie Mae is about 18 weeks old now, I think. What a "Tazmanian Devil" is she.
So much fun! And although she terrorizes Kelso, he is so good to her. He has never even growled at her when she is playing very rough with him! And she sure has made him yelp in pain a few times!
We are having a great time with her. Many times she actually looks just like a stuffed-toy- animal! She is doing great sleeping in her crate. Thanks for telling us how to crate train her. She sleeps all through the night in it and takes a couple 2 hour naps each day in it as well. Kelso is grateful for that too. She has added much fun and love to our home since our Black Lab "Tobie" passed on.

God Bless you!

Wanted to give you an update. Last year I had emailed you telling you about how our first child was stillborn just 10 days before his due date. We bought a welsh terrier from you soon after and named her Siena. We were so distraught over the loss of our child and thought a puppy would be a good distraction for us.Since Caleb's passing we have welcomed his little sister, Abigail. She is now almost a year old! Her and Siena have become best friends. We still consider Siena "Caleb's puppy" since we got her in honor of him. Siena has helped us heal so much and now we are thrilled to share her with Abigail. Thought this would be a cute picture for the website! Thank you-we love our welsh terrier!

Another month has passed and I recommend your business to any and all interested parties. Bacon continues to do wonderfully. My son and Bacon have developed a very special bond which is far more than I could have wished for when we decided to add him to our family. Our home has had laughter we haven't had in years because of him and again I thank you for making our family complete. We never knew what element was missing until he came into our lives. He also continues to have odd nicknames. He is still Bacon, but he is also The Bits, Bacon Bits, Chewbaca, "the terror", Baconator, and "the Little Evil" depending on what antics or mischief he has gotten up to that day. He is most definitely a people person too and a neighborhood favorite. A lot of the neighbors have changed up their walking routes so that they can walk their dogs over this way to say hi to him.

He has settled into our home so wonderfully that I am glad that we choose him over the other dogs we were looking at. I have included a picture of him here alone and one with Jack.

Thanks again for everything!

Thought that you'd like to know how Dylan is doing now that he is a year and 2 months old. I get stopped by people all the time who think he's an outstanding looking Welsh terrier (or Airedale puppy!) and want to know if he is for sale, which he definitely isn't. He's extremely good-natured and gets along well with other dogs and people. We've been taking him to the Missouri Earthdog fun days at Purina Farms near St. Louis. He really likes the 'go to ground' event. Once he found out that there's a rat (in a cage) at the end of the tunnels he shows no hesitation in going into them. He also holds his own pretty well in the terrier races. All in all, we are very pleased with him, he is giving us a lot of fun and enjoyment. Much thanks.

W e purchased Ozark from you in 2002 and he will be 10 years old in April. He is the BEST dog and we have enjoyed him so much. He does not act his age, he still is very perky and moves well. He is a small Welsh and maintains his 16 lbs. Thought you might enjoy and update 10 years later.

Just thought we would send you a picture of Brandy, she just turned a year old.

We absolutely love her, she is a sweet loveable dog, full of energy - we think she sneaks jumping beans for breakfast (she almost jumps on the counter).

We had her spay and all went well. Every time we look at her we can't help but smile..

Thanks for breeding such a wonderful dog. Hope all is well with you.

Our oldest is in college so we even have him on the phone!J

Hi Joy! Linda Page here, daughter of Joe and Jean Leeah in El Paso who got Ozzie a little over 2 years ago from you! Dad asked me to email and send a picture - he had lost your email. He wants to share other pictures with you. Joy, that wild little welsh terrier has added so much excitement and joy to my parents lives that I know the good Lord had his hand in this whole adventure. He is the center of their lives and the 3 of them communicate with each other in a remarkable way! Ozzie is super intelligent and understands pretty much everything they say and do - they talk to him just like they do to me!!

Dad has just about lost all of his sight now and so life is more difficult in many ways but he is healthy and will have a knee replaced in March so he can get back to his golf, etc! He has dear friends who line him up and tell him where to aim his shots! We all worried whether getting a puppy at Mom & Dad's age was the right thing to do. but my Dad had no doubts and it has turned out to be so much the right decision!

Thank you so much for your part in all of this!

Hope you and your family and dogs are doing well.

This is Joe and Amy Lawrence, just to let you know how well the puppy has worked out for us. The first several weeks were probably just as much an adjustment for her, as it was for us. Remember, we haven't had a dog in the house in 20 years. But, what a change a month has made. Her name is Claire and she is sooo smart. She learns just about anything the first few tries. She will sit, lay down, retrieve a ball and return it, and even rings the bell by the door to go out and do her business. She's still a little hyper at times, but that seems to get better on a daily basis. Puppy school was also a challenge at first, but is getting better. She isn't afraid of anything! Anyhow, thanks for Claire. She's increasingly becoming a part of the family now. Here's a recent picture of her.

Cheers Joe and Amy

I just wanted to write a note on Fozzie's first birthday to let you know how we're doing. Fozzie has been a wonderful addition to the family—he's such a good boy, very trainable, and so much fun. He lives to play fetch, chew bully sticks, socialize, and lay in the sun, and he's been very gentle toward the new baby (and everyone else). He has a little naughty streak in him and enjoys being chased around and getting into trouble. He's incredibly intelligent, loving, and unbelievably strong and muscular. He needs (and gets) a lot of exercise. We love him very much, and we're so glad we got him. Thank you for our wonderful dog. Recent photo attached.
Best regards,

Hi Joy,
Keegan is doing very well. Luckily I was not feeding him any of the dog foods that have been recalled.
. Keegan went for his first day of puppy school today which went as well as can be expected. Although he has been socializing with the Sheltie next door and with other dogs we meet along our daily walks, he was able to play with a lot of other puppies today. There were various dogs from a Black Labrador, Pug, Black & White Pekingese, a couple of Shepherd mixes and a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier. Keegan met his match with the Wheaton Terrier. They both played a lot and had a good time.

Very Truly Yours,

Attached pics of my niece, Jayden and her first day with the puppy. She is doing very well, she's an ornery little thing and likes to get into everything! She's quite amusing though and my mom cant get enough of her. My other dog has taken to her quite well. They get into it every now and then. I think they might be trying to figure out who's boss. They both seem to want to be the boss.

Hope you enjoy the pics. everyone loves her!

This is Lucy with the boys at 5 1/2 months. She has gotten the potty stuff down, but we are still working on the manners. She is a stubborn little girl. I will send you more pictures soon.

Your Friend, Amy Soltys
