"Dudley is a Lakeland Terrier crossed with an Irish Terrier. He has the character of an Irish, but is smaller, and seems to have the head of a Lakeland, as well as the curly coat. He was rescued from Watford Dogs Centre. The Centre seemed to think he was between 18 months and two years then, but we thought he was younger, going by his puppy style ways. We have just celebrated his fourth birthday on Valentine’s Day. He gets so much attention at our local park. Someone even asked if they could get a dog like him!!"
The Irish Lakeland Terrier is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Irish Terrier and the Lakeland Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
