Working Fell Terriers (non-Kennel Club working terriers inhabiting the rocky Lakeland Fells region of England) have always been very variegated, but in contrast to white-haired terriers , were always colored terriers (tan, black, or black and tan). Several Kennel Club breeds such as the Lakeland Terrier, Welsh Terrier and Border Terrier have been developed from the Cumberland, Westmorland and Scottish Borders colored coarse-coated Fell Terriers.
