In recent years, the number of Bedlington Terrier puppies registered annually with the American Kennel Club hovered around 200 puppies in the entire USA. Compare that to over 87,000 Labrador Retriever pups in the same year. The average Bedlington litter is 4-5 puppies.
I strongly recommend you locate a breeder that you like and that you put a deposit down to reserve a puppy from their next litter. This puppy will be with you for years. Spend at least as much time researching your breeder and your puppy as you would buying a new car!
I am an AKC Breeder of Merit and BTCA Breeder of Distinction. Occasionally, puppies or dogs available for sale to responsible and loving prospective buyers, will be listed below. I reserve the right to refuse to sell a puppy or dog at my discretion.

Another resource is the breeder referral pages of the Bedlington Terrier Club of America website, at www.bedlingtonamerica.com. Reach out to breeders asking about their plans for future litters.
I have offered to assist an owner who is going through a life change re-home their 4 year old sandy male Bedlington. From his loving owner: He is in excellent health. No issues. He’s up to date with all shots. We just took him to the vet last month. He’s a really great dog. Energy when playing but also laid back when everyone’s relaxing in the house. He’s very gentle with people and loves kids. I’d say the only negative thing is that he has fear aggression when it comes to grooming and ear plucking.
If you are interested in discussing this boy further, please reach out to me.
Annual AKC Registration Statistics

Breeder Bill Shelton had this wonderful observtion:
The next time someone infers that purebred dogs are inferior to any other, inform them of a few of these details;
Purebreds when acquired from preservationist breeders are the healthiest family of dogs known to exist in the world today! How do we know this? Because preservation breeders are purposeful breeders, only selecting fathers and mothers on generations of documented health tested individuals and their families, possessing and only breeding from the happiest well adjusted of tested character.
No other colony of dogs in the world have generational scientific documentation as gathered specifically by reporting purebred breeders to agencies like Orthopedic Foundation of America, and used as a tools in purposefully breeding the next generation of the happiest healthiest family of dogs.
AKC Purebred dogs breeders join and are represented by their own "Canine Health Foundation", a cutting edge foundation bringing preservationist breeders the absolute latest in health, and DNA sciences for canine health, and optimum reproduction. One of the only foundations of its kind to exist for the sole purpose of creating a genuinely healthier canine existence. The canine genome has been successfully mapped. These foundations have contributed to finding cures for human disease through their studies.
Purposeful purebred breeders take care of their own, that's why as reported by the National Animal Interest Alliance, Purebreds were identified as only representing 4 to 5 percent of all dogs found in shelters today. AKC Purebreds breeders have developed a nation wide rescue network of AKC parent breed clubs and their regional chapter clubs rescues.
AKC breeders of merit microchip their puppies, so no purposefully bred dog is ever left behind in a shelter.
AKC purebred and crossbred dogs can depend on a nation wide AKC disaster relief program initiated in time of national disaster for the sole purpose of reuniting and caring for canines in need.
AKC clubs and their breeders across this nation, offer thousands of events in socialization, obedience, and their very own "Canine Good Citizen" programs. Events are offered where preservation breeders assemble to identify the progress of their breeding programs.
These are only a few of all the positives that surround these unique, mystical and rare canine that have been traditionally, and purposefully bred for centuries. I invite you to share in all of the unique benefits and pure joy of owning a member of the family that was brought into this world purposefully bred, for health and happiness.
