The linty coat and distinctive arched loin of the Bedlington and his long head give him a lamb-like appearance, but he is an excellent dispatcher of vermin from rabbit to fox. The origins of the breed are much debated with some suggestion of the Bull Terrier and the Otterhound and perhaps some Dandie Dinmont but as in many breeds there is some dispute in the background of the breed.
