The Kerry Blue Terrier is a well-built, muscular, medium-sized dog with true terrier style and character. Born black at birth the coat changes color through one or more transitions.

This breed is gentle, lovable, and intelligent. It is successfully in herding sheep and cattle; an all-round working and utility terrier. It is outgoing and friendly towards its family, it is known to give big slurpy kisses. It is a loving family dog.


Any shade of blue, with or without black points, a small white patch on chest should not be penalized.


Soft, spiky, plentiful and wavy. It should be groomed every 6 weeks. It also needs to have the hair pulled out of the ear canal, as it is prone to ear infections when the ear hair gets too long and wax and dirt have built up. The Kerry Blue sheds little to no hair and is odorless, even when wet. Bathing and combing every week is a must! Frequent bathing will not dry out the skin as it does in so many other breeds. Without proper care their beard will get smelly and packed with food and dirt. The Kerry Blue is good for allergy sufferers.
