Kerry Blue Terrier

The Kerry blue terrier embodies the very nature of the word ‘terrier.’ Originating in picturesque County Kerry in southwestern Ireland, the Kerry is a rugged, all-purpose farm and hunting dog. This long-legged terrier has a distinctive soft, wavy, non-shedding coat that is spectacular in show trim. Born black then turning any shade of beautiful blue grey, the Kerry has become highly competitive in the conformation ring as well as in agility and obedience. A delightful companion animal for people with time to share, Kerries are not for the timid or for people just wanting a dog as a decoration.
