A wonderful balance of high class and composure, Kerry Blue Terriers are superb guard dogs that show great loyalty to members of their human family.

About the Kerry Blue Terrier

Their ancestors were originally used to attack otters in deep waters, flush badgers and hunt common vermin.

Kerry Blue Terriers are upstanding and well proportioned. From their elegant appearance to their extraordinarily supple movements, Kerry Blues are terriers from head to tail and everything in between.
