Kerry Blue Terrier

Kerry Blue Terrier


Height: 17-20 inches

Weight: 33-40 lbs.

Life Span: 12-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
Kerry blues are loyal to their owners but may not be tolerant of young children. They are aggressive toward other dogs as well, and they will chase small animals, such as cats, if not introduced to them at an early age.

Obedience training is difficult but mandatory, and must be ongoing, for these are very stubborn, assertive dogs.

Appearance
The Kerry blue's ears fold forward and its beard is thick. Its coat is soft, dense, and wavy. The color ranges from light blue-gray to deep slate; pups are born black.

The head, muzzle, ears, tail, and feet are darker than the rest of the body.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Kerry blues need to be brushed and combed twice a week and trimmed every three months. They require a lot of exercise and must be kept on a leash around other dogs.

Origins
The Kerry blue terrier, developed in County Kerry, Ireland, has been used for many types of work, including water retrieving, trailing, and herding.

Special Alerts
The Kerry blue is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners. It may not be tolerant of young children.

Breed-related health concerns: hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism, eye problems.
