Kerry Blue Terrier...


The Kerry Blue Terrier was first noticed in the mountain region of County Kerry in Ireland by visitors from the outside in the early 1800s. Today he is the national dog of the Republic of Ireland where he is known as the Irish Blue. His exact ancestry is unknown but he has been used to hunt small game and birds, to retrieve from land and water alike, and to herd sheep and cattle. The Kerry Blue Terrier's short, wavy, slate-blue colored coat is unique amongst terriers. Vivacious, playful, determined, alert, boisterous and unrepressed, the Kerry Blue Terrier has a way about it that makes people laugh and have fun. This breed doesn't shed much, making it a good choice for people prone to allergies.

The Kerry Blue Terrier has a silky soft, dense coat that can be curly or wavy. The Kerry Blue sheds little to no hair and is odorless, even when wet. Kerries should be groomed every 6 weeks.  To prevent mats from forming, brush daily. In addition, the Kerry should be professionally groomed every 4 to 6 weeks, and the hair in the ear canal must be removed to prevent infection. Many owners keep the coat regularly trimmed.
