Buy Glen Of Imaal Terrier

Glens have many "antique" features similar to those present in the early terrier breeds, including a large and broad head, ears that become rose-shaped or semi-pricked when alert, and a deep, muscular chest. They walk with speed and agility despite having slightly bowed front legs with turned-out feet. You can also recognize them by their unique straight topline that rises slightly toward their tail.

Most people find the temperament of Glen of Imaal Terriers to be sweet and docile. Some also find their personality "stoic" since they neither bark much nor get excited as much as some other terrier breeds. When it comes to work, they show great courage and become active, energetic, and completely focused on their task.

Exercise. Glen of Imaal Terriers are typically less energetic than other terriers and need only moderate exercise to stay fit. However, being working dogs by nature, they still enjoy an active lifestyle. Many times, you may find them playing by themselves, but that may not be enough. You should also help them exercise by taking them out for a short walk or a playful run through the park. Just remember not to tire them out during such activities since their short legs might not be able to bear too much stress.

If raised together with animals and trained from a young age, Glens can live happily with other pets, including dogs and cats. However, being a terrier, they always feel the urge to chase small, furry creatures. This means they can act aggressively towards other pets if they mistake them for prey.

Once the conflict ended, many of them stayed back in the Wicklow county. Over time, they bred their own small-sized hounds with the native terrier breeds to create a new breed, which became famous as the Glen of Imaal Terrier.

The original purpose of these dogs was to get rid of vermin such as badgers, foxes, otters, and rats. Unlike most other terriers, they were bred to work silently and go after their quarry without barking or making any noise.

Despite such recognition, Glen of Imaal Terriers have still not gained popularity among dog owners. Today, not only are they the least-known terrier breed in Ireland but also one of the rarest dog breeds in America.

The Glen of Imaal Terrier usually weighs somewhere under 40 pounds, but he carries himself very much like a big dog on his short legs. When it comes to barking, he's one of the quieter terriers -- remember, that's a relative term for this noisy lot -- and that, along with his medium size and moderate exercise needs, makes him a great city and apartment dog.

Terriers come in all shapes and sizes. When you decide that a terrier is the right type of dog for you, your next step will be to decide which breed of terrier you like. The Glen of Imaal Terrier is not a well-known terrier in the United States, but they are gaining popularity.

Bringing home a Glen of Imaal Terrier will bring joy, happiness, and mischief to the entire family. This Irish breed will need a strong, Irish name that embodies their personality.

These foreign dwarf hounds mated with the indigenous terrier population, resulting in a new breed of dog that was ideally suited to the region and its inhabitants. Presumably, the Glen of Imaal Terrier became in existence this way and has been given the name of its birthplace.

The Glen of Imaal is a spirited, brave, patient and devoted little dog. Mellow and gentle with the family, it is vigorous and unyielding when hunting; otherwise mild-mannered and calm indoors.
