Kerry Blue Terrier

Breed: Kerry Blue Terrier Find Litters

A distinctive looking medium sized dog that is a great choice as a family pet. Loyal, fun loving and affectionate, they are very good around children. They are very intelligent and easy to train, and are great watchdogs. They do require a lot of exercise so as an owner you need to be quite active. They do like to chase smaller animals as it is in their nature and they are generally a healthy breed. Overall a lovely addition to an active family home that has plenty to keep them stimulated.

When it comes to health, the Kerry Blue Terrier is known to suffer from Hip dysplasia, Elbow dysplasia and Cataracts.
