Originating from England, the Lancashire Heeler is apart of the herding group. They are most commonly black and tan, but may appear in liver and tan as well. It is speculated that this breed came about when a Welsh Corgi was introduced to a Manchester Terrier, but others suggest a Corgi and a Dachshund. Unlike the Corgi, these hearty pups can live up to 15 years old, or more, and they are half the size. If you’re interested in owning one of these handsome dogs, don’t let their short stubby appearance fool you; they will thrive in agility, flyball, and herding competitions.
