The Welsh Terrier makes an excellent
companion for hunting small game such as birds and fox. This
is what it was mainly used for in the past, however nowadays
the Welsh Terrier is commonly kept as a household pet.
As is typical with terriers, the Welsh Terrier has a soft
undercoat as well as a rough protective outter coat.
Terriers in general are noted for having a fair size temper
as well as being very energetic in nature. This holds true
in both respects for the Welsh Terrier. However, if raised
properly from a young age they can make great pets as their
tempers are more easily controlled.
