The Lucas Terrier is a rare, laid back, loving breed native to England. The breed boasts the intelligence of a terrier but lacks the negative nervous habits thereof. The breed is small, friendly, and low-key creating a unique companion. The Lucas Terrier made its first appearance in the 20th century and made its way to the United States in the 1960s. Little to no effort is needed to keep this dog happy and healthy on both the physical and emotional levels. They are easily trained and highly adaptable to most living circumstances.
The lucas terrier is a purebred small dog breed that was bred to be an overly friendly companion dog. The lucas terrier was originally a hybrid dog which was bred by crossing a Norfolk Terrier with a Sealyham Terrier. Today the lucas terrier is considered a purebred dog breed and dogs will only be considered a lucas terrier if their lineage can be traced back to the original bloodline (crossing a norfolk terrier with a sealyham terrier nowadays will not produce an official lucas terrier).
