Glen of Imaal Terrier Information

Glen of Imaal TerrierA scruffy, sturdy dog, the Glen of Imaal Terrier is an adorably sweet pup with a no-frills flare. With a history as a farm dog, this breed hails from the Glen of Imaal valley in the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland.

Compared to other Terriers, the Glens are gentler and less excitable. Mildly active, they do love to play, explore and dig, and have a bold spirit that makes them a fun household pet. Their coat, which can be harsh in texture and blue brindle or wheaten in color, requires stripping twice a year, but other than that, they are pretty low maintenance.
