In general, the breed should measure between 101⁄2 up to 12 inches high, measured at the wither, or top of the shoulder blade. Sealyhams should never exceed 12 inches at the withers. They should weigh between 23 and 25 pounds, males being heavier. Length of back should approximate the height. Length of back is measured from the top of the withers to the front edge of the tail. The coat is always white and can come with or without markings in colors including lemon, black, brown, blue, and badger, which is a mix of brown and black. Ticking (speckled markings) on the body is faulted by the UKC, but acceptable in other kennel clubs.[1] Heavy body markings and excessive ticking are discouraged.[2] Temperament A Sealyham puppy is normally very active. As the Sealyham matures, it becomes a couch potato, "displaying an even temper and a calm and relaxed attitude". Sealyhams are not busy dogs so it is necessary to manage their weight through calorie management and occasional exercise, such as a daily walk. Grooming Sealyham coats are groomed by stripping, in order to keep the coat from becoming too soft.[3] History A Sealyham Terrier photographed in 1915. The Sealyham Terrier derives its name from Sealyham, Haverfordwest, Wales, the estate of Captain John Edwardes, who developed a strain of dogs noted for their prowess in quarrying small game. He crossed the Dandie Dinmont, the now-extinct White English Terrier, the Fox Terrier, the West Highland White Terrier, and the Corgi and tested the offspring for hunting ability, culling those who did not prove game.[4] Within the Hollywood Movie Industry, the Sealyham became a fashionable dog to own by the Hollywood elite. It was owned by Director Alfred Hitchcock, Actors, Jean Harlow, Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Margaret. The dog was widely owned in England, but interest in the dog waned in conjunction with the banning of badger digs. Today it is primarily a companion dog, and when hunting has been banned in countries, its use for hunting purposes has been eliminated. The first Sealyham Terrier club was created in 1908 and the breed was officially recognised in 1910. The Sealyham Terrier now is recognised by all of the major kennel clubs in the English-speaking world. The Sealyham was once one of the more popular terriers and one of the best known Welsh breeds. Today, however, The Kennel Club (UK) lists the Sealyham as amongst the most endangered native breeds.[5] A Sealyham Terrier, Champion Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice, won Best In Show at Crufts in 2009. Famous Sealyham Terriers Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice (Charmin) became World Champion (Best in Show) at the Fédération Cynologique Internationale 2008 Stockholm, Sweden World Dog Show. Charmin also won the 2007 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship Best of Show and 2009 Best in Show at Crufts. Charmin has featured in Eukanuba advertisements. Jennie, pet of Maurice Sendak, featured in his book Higglety, Pigglety, Pop! (Sendak included Sealyhams in many of his other works as well, most notably Where the Wild Things Are). In the 2010 film adaptation Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life, Jennie is voiced by Meryl Streep[6] At the beginning of the Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds, Hitchcock (in his cameo appearance for the film) is walking his two Sealyham Terriers - Geoffrey and Stanley - out of a shop as Tippi Hedren walks in. Hitchcock also owned a third Sealyham named Mr. Jenkins. At the end of the movie The Departed when Matt Damon exits the elevator, a Sealyham Terrier makes a short appearance as it is walked by an old lady to the same elevator.
