Thinking About Adopting?
Without a doubt, WTCares thinks Welsh Terriers are the best breed ever. Their tenacity, independent attitude, and lively personality make them great choices for many people. Unfortunately, those same qualities make them stubborn and a bit hard to train. These dogs cannot be off-leash, due to their strong prey drive, they are ratters (referred to as earth dogs). A fenced-in area is preferable, but not necessary if you are able to give them lots of exercise. We ask you to read up on the breed prior to requesting a rescue in your home.
You must have an application on file to be eligible to adopt. IMPORTANT: USE THE DROP DOWN AREA ON THE FORM TO DIRECT/eMAIL YOUR ADOPTION FORM TO THE REPRESENTATIVE CLOSEST TO YOUR LOCATION.

Remember these dogs are being rehomed, if you are looking for the perfect puppy, rescue is not for you. Most of our dogs range from four to nine years old, and although we make sure every dog leaving our care is medically up-to-date, some may have special needs. Most welsh terriers can live well into their mid teen years, a five year old could easily live another 8 years….or more. We rarely get puppies.
If you prefer a puppy, follow this link http://clubs.akc.org/wtca/ to the Welsh Terrier Club for breeder referrals.
You may also call the WTCares representative closest to your area, to inquire if they know of a reputable breeder with a litter.
