Welsh Terriers -
If you have a Welshie, won't you share his/her pictures and the knowledge you have that can benefit others considering this breed.
Health:Welsh Terriers are hardy little canines and generally enjoy not only good health throughtout their lifetime, but also a prolonged youthfulness well into senior years. With good care, they can easily live up to 13 or more years.
However, it is good to be aware of health issues that may affect the breed, even though in many cases your Welshie may never be affected by them.
Some disorders associated with this breed include eye conditions such as glaucoma and inherited lens luxation which can also lead to glaucoma, but in the latter, DNA testing is available and should be done in breeding stock. Dry eye may also be a related issue.
Other diseases to note are epilepsy, cushing's disease, and hypothyroidism.
Those seeking to acquire a Welsh Terrier should be sure to ask breeders about these health matters.
Activity Level:Welshies can be very active and busy for periods of time indoors and then become complete couch potatoes. But if they haven't been given a walk, that's a different story and they will find a way to let you know its time to go!
Space Needs:This breed is very adaptable to any accommodations, although they do like to be outside quite often and expect to get one, or hopefully two, decent walks a day.
Children:They really light up around children and enjoy playing games with them. They are tough enough to handle boisterous activity. The caution still remains that interactions between children and dogs should always be watched.
Elderly:Welsh Terriers are a good breed for the elderly, being an alert watchdog and a faithful companion.
