  1. Welsh Terrier ๐Ÿ™‚ I always wanted to have a dog ๐Ÿ™‚ Welsh is serene, joyful and tireless dogs. There is a lot of fun with it, but many require.2 times a week mandatory walk through the hour (dog must be drained because otherwise August is not looking), or run with the bike, cross-country skiing and more recently even run a motor ๐Ÿ™‚ and so from Monday-Friday, walk two times a day and all day on the garden a feed could not run, jump and go crazy. It’s a very intelligent dogs and very patient. Mad to attach and rather poor response to loneliness. Sometimes we do not have 13 hours, but after that it compensates for dog walks, fun and exercise. Welshman necessarily have to practice obedience, even while playing’re incorporating search command, lie down, sit, five, etc.I recommend to all, but under the condition that they will be able to give up a social life and rush to your piesiura, then pay attention to him and the time for walks, having fun. best regards.

  2. I had a terrier who lived to the age of 15 right and in good conscience I can say that by the end of his days he was very exuberant and energetic. Later ostanim week before his day among us has lost the desire to play. He left with old age, not wogole was sick, it was hard to come to terms with his loss but I know no one is eternal. I would recommend this breed are very tenacious and energetic to the last of his days. Yes wogole plan to buy a dog of this breed just to at least partially fill the void at such a magnificent dog.

  5. I have a hybrid mother’s Welsh Terrier is a breed and the Father Mongrel but got into a mother at least in appearance. I do not know how your dogs but he loves to eat my ugliest and everything I need to keep an eye on. We also like to have fun and not feel it jealousy and desire for children. Overall, this is my first dog but I’m happy with it sometimes is loved especially rolling over on his back to his tummy rub. Only you do not like it, strangely enough water threw him to stick to the lagoon he retrieved and there is no chance will not come to her, and now, as I swim to the shore he …. of which can be related? And also do not know if anyone has a dog like this but I’m out of my I can not walk near the forest at least in bulk, because once felt from afar like a deer in the bushes behind her let go of it to no avail my cry for happiness is found, it is sometimes disobedient once again not listening to me.
