Dogs - Kerry Blue Terriers

Kerry blue terriers were bred in Ireland over 100 years ago. The name derives from County Kerry, a place in Ireland, and Blue being the colour of the coat. The coat has a bluish sheen and can be grey-blue. It gets bluer as the puppy matures. The coat is soft and wavy.

About Kerry Blues

The dogs worked on farms, ridding them of small pests. They have been retrievers fetching small game on land & from water, and have been used to herd sheep.

Kerry blues can be stubborn, so puppies should be socialised and trained carefully. They are intelligent dogs who can be trained.

The Irish (and their terriers) have the reputation of being a nation of fighters who will rise to defend their territory. They are much like the nation of Israel, who are fighting for their homeland. The Bible tells us to "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love Jerusalem will prosper." Psalm 122, verse 6
