A hardy breed known for his curly, woolly coat, the Bedlington Terrier was developed in 19th-century England to catch vermin. His gracefully shaped body gives the Bedlington the capacity for great speed and endurance. Mild and gentle with a lovable nature, the breed makes a wonderful family companion. He is an energetic but not overly rambunctious companion that needs daily exercise. His coat requires regular trimming.

The Bedlington Terrier was popular with John D. Rockefeller and his family. The Bedlington, named “Timmie,” who won the 1948 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was owned by Rockefeller's grandnephew, William A. Rockefeller.
