Glen Of Imaal Terrier

From Dog

The Glen of Imaal Terrier is a centuries-old breed and originated in the Glen of Imaal in County Wicklow, Ireland.

The description of the Glen of Imaal Terrier as an antique breed is probably apt in terms of character as well as conformation. The Glen has retained its qualities of versatility, intelligence and ruggedness. This is not a cookie-cutter breed, and even within a litter there is often variation. Its character and temperament are best described as complex.

Their lifespan is around 10 - 13 years, although a few Glens live to 14 or even as much as 17.
