Sealyham terrier

a small (22-25 lb), stocky dog with short legs and a harsh, wiry coat that is predominantly white, but may have lemon, brown, blue or badger pied markings on the head and ears. The coat is trimmed to a short length on the body but forms thick feathers on the legs and body and a beard with bushy 'eyebrows'. The breed is predisposed to atopic dermatitis, lens luxation and retinal dysplasia.
