On 1825, the race renamed the Bedlington Terrier Bedlington. The race was highly valued for the fox hunting, hares and Badgers. He was also used as a vermin Hunter by miners from Bedlington. Miners exploited his bravery to use it as a dog fight with the dogs of hunters that used perdigueros dogs.

As he Otterhound and the Dandie Dinmont Terrier they are potential contributors to the race. Some breeders, especially those of England cross the Bedlingtons with Whippets and Greyhounds to produce what they call Lurchers.

Observations

Their fur tends to be misleading, They seem to be a lamb, but in reality, each hair grows from a hair follicle, It has a cycle of growth, and when it dies it is replaced by another follicle, but the dead hair is still there… bulging.

For which reason, daily brushing is very important if you don't want to have, the whole house full of hair… Also, since it is very thin, adheres to any part, and it can even be inhaled, causing problems for allergic persons. Workspace very well to family life and are good with children.

Character and skills

Calmer and less noisy than other Terrier. Usually one moderate behaviour and good character, they are very good companions for families.
If left alone for many hours, they can become very destructive, since they get bored easily and everything they catch..., in danger of being destroyed. For which reason, It advisable to give long walks, where you can run around and release energy.
