These two terriers are both known for hunting foxes and badgers. Meet the Sealyham and the Skye Terriers.

The oval eyes are somewhat wide apart, and the ears are folded evenwith the top of the head, the forward edge resting the cheek. The tail is docked and sported straight up. The coat is hard and wiry.
