History of Bedlington Terrier

The Bedlington Terrier was originally named after the Roseberry Area on the English border. Rothbury’s gypsy nailists used this breed as a hunter to hunt a variety of animals, including badges. Around 1825, Rothbury’s dog mated with a Bedlington bitch. Joseph Ainsley produced the first dog known as the Bellington Terrier. Whippets may be introduced to make the breed faster and more athletic. Other sources say the Dandie Dinmont terrier may be responsible for the variety. The resulting agile terriers are badges, rats, otters, foxes and rabbits. Bedlington was first introduced as another breed in 1877.
