Силихем терьер

Силихем the terrier was born in XIX century. His homeland is South Wales. The father of the breed was Captain John Tucker Edwards, who wished to create a coarse terrier that would not be afraid of bad weather and had a white coat so that the dogs could detect it from the distance from afar.

In the 20-30s of the twentieth century Scotch Terrier was at the height of glory. Then Fortune ceased to smile at him and Scotch terriers went out of fashion. But for today this dog is loved and bred in all corners of the world.

Силихем the terrier was born in XIX century. His homeland is South Wales. The father of the breed was Captain John Tucker Edwards, who wished to create a coarse terrier that would not be afraid of bad weather and had a white coat so that the dogs could detect it from the distance from afar.

To get the desired result, he used primarily the Cheshire Terrier (today no longer exists). This terrier had a completely white coat.
