Weiss details the origins of Sealyham Terrier, a breed that is a marvelous companion, a terrier that can still work, and very often a peerless performer in the demanding environment of the show ring. He asserts that the Sealyham Terrier was a creation of former military officer Captain John Edwards, who wanted a breed that would be keen for the chase, a match for the fierce badgers and otters near Haverfordwest Wales.
