The Lakeland Terrier is one of many Terrier dog breeds, that originated in England as a descendant of the old English Black and Tan and Fell Terriers. In 1925 the breed attained homogeneity following a cross-breeding with the Fox Terrier and the Airedale Terrier.
The Lakeland Terrier is suitable for fox and rabbit hunting. The breed is similar to the Welsh Terrier and has thick, hard hair that is coloured black and tan, blue and tan, red-gray, red, wheat, liver, blue, or black. Lakeland Terriers grow to between 33 and 38cm (13 to 15 inches) with a weight of between 7 and 8 kg (15 to 17 lbs).
