Glen of Imaal Terrrier puppies are baby dogs of the Glen of Imaal Terrier breed. This breed of dog is medium-sized with a medium-length, rough double coat. They are classified as part of the Terrier group by the American Kennel Club, or AKC.
Glen Imaal Terriers originated in Ireland, where they hunted badgers and foxes. They also worked as Turnspit dogs, working a wheel that turned a spit over a fire.
The Glen of Imaal Terrier was recognized by the AKC in 2004. It measures from 12 to 14 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs about 35 pounds. Its body is longer than it is tall. The breed maintains old Terrier features, such as bowed forequarters with feet turned out.
The Glen of Imaal Terrier is agile and quiet while working and is a good companion for families with older children. Terriers have a strong prey drive; they chase and sometimes injure smaller pets. The Glen of Imaal Terrier is generally not as excitable as other Terrier breeds, but still needs to be supervised around other animals. They tend to be gentle and docile. There is a lot of grooming required for this breed, since their harsh coat must be stripped twice yearly.
