The Breed History

A small town in Wales called Sealyham was the first recorded home of the breed. In the late 1800s, crosses to breeds such as Dandie Dinmont, Corgi, Westie, and perhaps Wirehaired Fox Terriers were done to develop this hardy athletic stock. AKC registration first occurred in 1911, and it was about that time also that the breed was first brought to North America.
