The Lakeland Terrier has a double coat. The outer coat is hard and wiry with furnishings on its foreface, undercarriage, and legs. The undercoat is soft. Lakeland terriers require moderate professional grooming to keep their coat in top form. Their color is usually red or red-grizzled, but they can be a blue-black as well.

The breed is derived like the Welsh Terrier from the now extinct Old English Black and Tan Terrier. Other breeds including Wire Fox Terrier, Border Terrier, Bedlington Terriers and the early Dandie Dinmonts are believed to have contributed to the breed's development.ÿ <a href="">(Credit:</a>The Lakeland Terrier originated in the Lake District of Cumberland, England near the Scottish border in the 1800's
