So you’re looking to adopt an Lakeland Terrier, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Square and sturdy Lakelands, standing less than 15 inches at the shoulder and weighing about 17 pounds, are small dogs. But don’t tell them that. With their cock-of-the-walk swagger, Lakelands personify the old dog-lover’s cliché “a big dog in a small package.” They come in several colors; some have a sporty saddle mark on the back.With folded V-shaped ears, straight front, rectangular head, and a mischievous twinkle in their eye, Lakelands are the blueprint of a long-legged British terrier. A bold, zesty “big dog in a small package,” the Lakeland Terrier, named for the Lake District of his native England, was once a farmer’s dog bred to work in packs on sheep-stealing foxes. The Lakeland’s coat is hard, wiry, and low-shedding.”
An Lakeland Terrier typically ranges from 35.56cm to 38.1cm in height, and weighs from 7.71107029kg to 7.71107029kg.
