So you’re looking to adopt an Kerry Blue Terrier, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Of course, we begin with the show-stopping coat that turns heads wherever Kerries go. It comes in shades of blue—from a deep slate to a light blue-gray—and is so soft that it’s as pleasing to the touch as it is to the eye. The dense coat covers a muscular, well-developed body standing below 20 inches at the shoulder and weighing up to 40 pounds. A sporty beard and dark, keen eyes accentuate the nobility of the long terrier head. Among the largest of AKC terriers, the Kerry Blue Terrier is famous for his show-stopping blue coat. Named for the Irish county of his birth, this onetime farm dog is today an alert, adaptable, and animated watchdog and family companion.”
An Kerry Blue Terrier typically ranges from 44.45cm to 49.53cm in height, and weighs from 14.968548210000002kg to 18.143694800000002kg.
