Glen Of Imaal Terrier Dog Breed Puppy Ads
Breed Group: Terrier Group Height Male: 14 inches (35.5-36.5 cm.)
Breed Size: Medium Height Female: 14 inches (35.5-36.5 cm.)
Breed Origin: Ireland Weight: 34-36 pounds (15.5-16.5 kg.)
The Glen is a big dog on short legs. It stands up to 14" at the withers (the point where the neck meets the back) and weighs between 32-40 lbs. It should always give the impression of great substance for its size. Longer than tall, it carries a double coat: a harsher outer coat and a soft under coat. The head coat and furnishings are softer. Its front legs are slightly bowed with front feet pointing to 10 and 2 o'clock. Its ears are rose or semi-prick when alert. Its unique top line slightly rises to a strong loin, with no dip or slackness behind the withers and no drop-off at the croup.

A determined and courageous breed when called for, the Glen of Imaal Terrier has a generally calm and gentle disposition, and is an intelligent dog that is quick to learn and eager to please. These dogs can be very willful and independent, and this makes them best suited to those with some experience when it comes to owning dogs. Spirited and energetic, this is a dog that loves to play and enjoys a range of activities, and is not for those that are looking for a dog that requires minimal exercise. Although he is loving and loyal to his owners the Glen of Imaal Terrier is not an overly demanding breed. He will bark to raise an alarm if something seems amiss, and this makes the Glen of Imaal Terrier an effective watchdog.

This breed gets along well with children, but is best suited to older children. Early socialization is needed when it comes to other pets such as cats, as they can be cat chasers. They can also be aggressive with other dogs and should not be trusted around smaller animals such as rodents and rabbits. When it comes to strangers, the Glen of Imaal Terrier tends to be polite and sometimes reserved. The Glen of Imaal Terrier has a very inquisitive streak too, and care should be taken not to let him off the leash in an area that is not secured with fencing.

There is evidence that the Glen of Imaal Terrier is a centuries-old breed, but until recently it has not been well-known even in its native country. It originated in a place called the Glen of Imaal in County Wicklow, Ireland.
The life expectancy of the Glen of Imaal Terrier is around 12-15 years, and there are a few health problems linked to the breed, although this is generally a hardy and healthy breed. Some of the health problems to keep an eye out for are HD and PRA. The parents of the Glen of Imaal Terrier puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
