Sealyham Terriers from the Princess Kindliness Sealyham Terriers

The Sealyham Terrier is happy little terrier full of courage and independence with a low-key attitude.  They need only moderate exercise and are good for apartments.  They love cooler weather so if you’re in the south get an air conditioner.  The Sealyham can be a good substitute for a cat, at least in the mousing game.  They make good watchdogs but may bark more than necessary.  Older, more considerate children will be better able to play with this terrier.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
