The Bedlington Terrier is a purebred dog breed that’s part of the terrier group. Also known as the Rothbury Terrier, this doggo comes from England in the 1800s. Initially bred to hunt vermin, this dog breed is loyal and charming today. They’re a great family companion dog. If you want to learn more about Bedlington Terrier puppies, then keep reading.

Where to get Bedlington Terrier Puppies

First, you can try to find this dog breed by going to your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. These places might have Bedlington Terrier puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds. Most of these dogs have been found as strays or were abandoned or surrendered by their previous owners. So, you can save a dog’s life by adopting and not shopping. Ned…

On the other hand, if you want to get a puppy and want to know where the dog came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. Since this doggo is purebred, the American Kennel Club recognizes it. So, you can check out the AKC Marketplace since ethical breeders are registered with them.

You’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents to ensure it’s safe and healthy for them to breed (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date on all of their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents and the litter in person

In addition, a good breeder will also be open and honest with you, able to answer all of your questions. For example, if you have questions about the breeder’s experience or reputation, the breed as a whole, the parents, the puppies, the adoption process, or the breeding process, the breeder will be able to explain.

If you find a breed that does not do the above, then you’ll want to avoid them. They’re most likely a backyard breeder or a puppy mill and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average cost of Bedlington Terrier puppies is about $1,500. However, the price might vary depending on the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, or the time of year. 

Appearance

Bedlington Terrier puppies will grow to be medium-sized dogs. For example, they can grow to be about 15 to 17.5 inches tall and weigh between 17 and 23 pounds. In addition, they have a curly medium coat that comes in a few different coat colors, such as:

  • Blue
  • Blue & Tan
  • Liver 
  • Liver & Tan
  • Sandy
  • Sandy & Tan

Temperament

There’s a lot to love about this dog breed. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. However, they might not be the most cuddly of breeds. They’ll be affectionate on their own terms.

In addition, they’re good around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, they need plenty of early socialization and training. They’re first and foremost a watchdog, so they’ll bark to alert you of new people approaching. Also, this doggo is somewhat tricky to train since they can be stubborn. So, you can hire a professional dog trainer to help you out if needed.

Finally, they have high energy levels. This dog breed will do okay living in an apartment but they’ll prefer to have a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. 

Bedlington Terrier Puppies – Veterinary Needs

As with all dogs, you’ll want to bring your Bedlington Terrier to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. However, during their first year, you can bring them more often to keep track of their growth and development. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters.

Also, this doggo is known to get a couple of health issues, such as:

  • Copper Toxicosis
  • Renal Cortical Hypoplasia
  • Distichiasis
  • Retinal Dysplasia

With proper care, Bedlington Terrier puppies have an average lifespan of about 11 to 16 years. 

Diet

You can feed this dog breed anything that’s approved by your vet and that’s also appropriate for their breed size, age, and weight. For example, you can give them high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

One of the night things about this dog breed is that they don’t shed too much. However, you’ll still want to brush their coat at least once a week to keep it looking healthy.

They do require regular grooming though. You can bring them to a professional grooming salon about once a month or once every other month for a good cleaning, clipping, and bath. You can also bathe them yourself at home as needed.

Finally, be sure to keep up with brushing their teeth, cleaning their ears, and trimming their nails regularly.
