Dog breed spotlight: Kerry Blue Terrier
These dogs have a distinctive appearance with a soft, dense, and wavy coat. They shed very little, but still require regular grooming and should be brushed and trimmed regularly.
An adult Kerry Blue Terrier is gray, but the puppies are born black and the coat fades until they're around 18 months old.
Kerry Blue Terriers are energetic and active dogs, and do best in active families. They love to dig and to chase things, and they require lots of exercise. Without both physical and mental stimulation they get bored and can become destructive. This breed was created to work, and they do best with a job to do.
A typical Kerry loves people and is devoted to the family, but owners should be aware that the breed still has a strong hunting instinct.
