Named after Ireland’s County Kerry region, the Kerry Blue Terrier breed was originally developed to hunt and retrieve small game across British fields, lakes and streams.

Kerry Blue Terriers have muscular, medium-sized, sturdy frames covered in soft, thick, wavy coats that are usually gray, slate or blue gray with possible patches of black. Their long heads have small, dark eyes, folded V-shaped ears, and (usually) beautifully trimmed beards. They have long necks, short backs and medium-length tails that are carried high. Overall, Kerry Blue Terriers look balanced and full of character.

Kerry Blue Terriers can live as long as 15 years.
