Kerry Blue Terrier Information

Originally bred for hunting and retrieving, the Kerry Blue Terrier is a frequent participant in dog shows, showing off its intelligence, agility and aptitude. In terms of appearance, the Kerry stands out for its textured, wavy coat that ranges from light to dark gray and can fade as time goes on.

If you’re thinking about welcoming a Kerry into your home, don’t worry – he’ll be a fantastic addition. The breed is people-oriented with a loving heart. They’re easy to train and get along great with other dogs and children. Perhaps it’s the Irish heritage that makes this pup such a humorous, fun-loving spirit!
