About the Welsh Terrier
The Welsh Terrier originated in Wales, and were used to thin out small game such as badgers, rabbits, and other small vermin. They are black (and sometimes grizzle) and tan (which is usually a more reddish brown). Their coat is very hard and wiry. They are a very sturdy and compact dog that is very friendly and simply adores children. They are about 15"-15 ½" high and weigh in between 18-22 lbs. These dogs can be very head strong at times, but thrive on attention.
Walnut Ridge Kennel is located in the heart of Southern Indiana, in a small town called Salem. We live on a farm and have always enjoyed, just about every kind of animals over the years. I’ve lived here all my life and have been raising Terriers for 24 years.
It has always been a family affair in our dog breeding program. Everyone chips in to help! Whether it’s cleaning, nurturing or just playing with the puppies to help properly socialize them.
Each litter of new puppies are born inside my home and stay there until they reach about 5 weeks of age and then they are moved to the building that is heated and air conditioned, where they have lots of room to run and play and begin their weaning process.
These are very intelligent, and highly trainable dogs, (but stubborn at times) whether it be in obedience or agility. They do demand a lot of attention. My dogs are bred for an excellent temperament, they are very spirited, with an overwhelming desire to please.
They can be very avid hunters in the right situations.
My dogs are all AKC Registered and are sold with a written Health guarantee. The puppies are microchipped before going to new homes. Their dew claws are removed and tails docked. Puppies are given their first shots and wormed, and of course, each puppy is vet checked.
A lot of people ask about hand stripping the coat! The dogs are very beautiful when you handstrip the coat, but are also very neat looking with regular clipping. Grooming for the show circuit requires hand stripping only.
