Welsh Terrier

Welsh Terrier

The Welsh Terrier is known to be one of the oldest breeds in the United Kingdom. With origins from Wales, this breed of Welsh Terrier has a contagious love of life and energy. This dog is full of energy and intelligence and is a fantastic terrier breed, their characteristics have been honed, so they are a fantastic solo hunter.

Originally bred for hunting of Foxes, Badgers and Rodents, this lively breed is now on the endangered dogs list with the Kennel Club as fewer and fewer Welsh Terriers are bred each year. Welsh Terriers are mainly bred now as show dogs and rarely found working.

Whippet

Whippet

The Whippet is known by several names, the Whippet, the English Whippet and the Snap Dog. Whippets are a sighthound breed that have origins in England, where they descended from Greyhounds.

Whippets have the stature and size of a small greyhound.

The rejects of the greyhound family, Whippets were the dogs that were too small to hunt or race. They were returned to the peasants in the villages, but injured first, so the peasants could not break the forest law and hunt.

The peasant breeders allowed these dogs to breed and used them for hunting rats and catch rabbits.

Whippets have often been described as the poor mans racehorse, due to their speed and agility, being the fastest dog of their size. Speeds of Whippets can often reach 35mph.

Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed, developed in the British county of Yorkshire to catch Rats in the clothing mills of Yorkshire and also for Rat baiting.

This breed has been nicknamed Yorkie and is a popular Companion Dog or Toy Dog breed.

For adult Yorkshire Terriers, importance is placed on coat colour, quality, and texture. The hair must be glossy, fine, straight, and silky. Traditionally the coat is grown out very long and is parted down the middle of the back, but “must never impede movement.”

Though small, the Yorkshire Terrier is active, very overprotective, curious, and loves attention. Mentally sound and emotionally secure ones should normally not show the soft submissive temperament seen in lap dogs. Because of this, it is advised that a Yorkie would not be suitable for a home with typical young children—they are Terriers after all. Instead, they make ideal companions for older families with many more reputable breeders routinely only homing to families with children older than about 8 years for the comfort of the dog, but more so for the benefit of the child.

Greyhound

Greyhound

Greyhounds are one of the oldest dog breeds, originally bred for coursing game and then in more recent decades, for greyhound racing.

After retirement from greyhound racing many dogs are adopted and taken into family homes as pets. This gentle and placid create is often found comfortably situated on a bed or a sofa, a million miles from the ferocious hunter that they were bred to be.

It is a gentle and intelligent breed whose combination of long, powerful legs, deep chest, flexible spine and slim build allows it to reach average race speeds in excess of 40 mph.

Greyhounds are quiet, gentle, and loyal to owners. They are very loving creatures, and they enjoy the company of their humans and other dogs. Whether a Greyhound enjoys the company of other small animals or cats depends on the individual dog’s personality. Greyhounds will typically chase small animals; those lacking a high ‘prey drive’ will be able to coexist happily with toy dog breeds and/or cats.

Greyhounds live most happily in quiet environments. A close relative of the greyhound is the Whippet.
