Kerry Blue Terrier

The Kerry Blue Terrier originated in Ireland and was bred to hunt and retrieve small game for farmers and hunters alike. It is thought that the Wheaten, Irish Wolfhound and Portuguese Water Dog are in the bloodline of the Kerry Blue. This breed also called the Irish Blue Terrier and is famously known as the dog of Ireland.

This breed is known for its unique coat colour and texture. They have very tight curls all over their body and their fur and skin are a slate blue colouring. The Kerry Blue's muzzle is rectangular and will have long tufts of fur resembling a beard and mustache! Their ears are small and slightly pricked upward and they have round deep set eyes. This dog has a muscular body that allows them to be quick and agile when hunting and their tail is naturally long but will be docked for show purposes.

The Kerry Blue is an energetic, animated character that entertains their family on a regular basis. They have a loving, protective personality that gives them the trademark attitude they are well known for. Great for families, this breed loves people and will get along okay with other family dogs but when encountering strange dogs might be a bit aggressive. Smaller pets will need to be monitored around this dog as they have a high prey drive for rodents and game.
