These natives of the English Lake District were originally used to protect lambs from foxes. The breed was officially named in 1912, but it would be another 20 years before a breed club was founded.
Black and tan is the most common color for Lakeland Terriers, but there is a black variety, also. It disappeared in Britain, but Scandinavian breeders have reintroduced it into the population.
