You Know It wins Best Of Winners at the 2009 MONTGOMERY
Originating in Britain, the Lakeland
Terrier was developed in the border county of Cumberland in the early 19th century.
This was a working terrier whose
job it was to kill foxes and other vermin that preyed on the farmers lambs
and poultry. Tough, brave and agile, the Lakeland is slender enough to follow
his quarry through narrow crevices. The breed is thought to be the product of
cross breeding of several terrier breeds and the Otterhound. The breed was originally
known by a variety of names depending on the area where it was bred - these include
Patterdale, Fell, Cumberland and Westmoreland. First specimens are said to have
been a rough-looking lot - a far cry from the stylish Lakie of today.
The present standard calls for a
withers height of 14-1/2.; weight of 17 lbs. The coat is double,
hard, dense and comes in a variety of colours from wheaten to black. The Lakeland
is hardy and active and makes a good companion.
We are very proud of our Lakeland
Terriers. Our first Lakie Danny, Canadian, American
and Bermudian Champion Jamelyns Second Edition holds all the show records
for a Lakeland Terrier in Canada. He was Canadas # 1 Dog All Breeds in
1989. Since Danny, many of our breeding have gone on to win Best In Shows and
Wenrick Lakelands are bred to conform
to the Standard for the breed and have outstanding temperaments.
All puppies come with a full health
guarantee and are guaranteed against any hereditary or congenital birth defects.
They have their first vaccinations and are tattooed for identification. They
are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club and are placed on a Non-Breeding
Agreement which means they may not be bred.
Lakelands are easily recognized in the show ring or
in a family setting. Quality and high standards are
important keynote words at Wenrick and the dedication
required to attain our goals is evidenced in our success.
