History 
The Bedlington Terrier comes from the Hanny Hills of Northumberland. In the end of the eighteenth century a form of game terriers was produced that became known as Rothbury Terriers, and the 1st Bedlingtons were derived from these dog breeds and maybe a few other crosses.  the end result was an nimble game terrier that was useful on badgers, foxes, otters, rodents, and even hares. By the end of the eighteen hundreds the dog breed had entered the world of show rings in addition to entering the homes of the upper class. At one point the liver color was commoner. Altho the blue has since exceeded it in popularity. The Bedlington Terrier lamblike looks attracts a lot of adorers, however the emphasis on dog show clipping at one point deadened the Bedlington’s popularity as a dog show dog. 

Temperament 
Bedlington Terriers are great companions, and are demonstrative, and faithful. They’re reasonably calm and quiet family dogs. They can be aggressive fighters when agitated by other animals or dogs, 

Upkeep 
Betllington Terriers require a long walk or energetic play session each day. The coat calls for brushing several times each week, plus scissoring to contour the coat every other month or so. 

Health 
health concerns with the Bedlington terrier are Copper toxicosis, retinal dysplasia, and renal cortical hypoplasia.  It is suggested that you get the DNA tested for copper toxicosis and also test the eyes of this breed.
