Introduction

The Glen of Imaal Terrier, also known as the Irish Glen of Imaal Terrier, the Glen of Imaal and simply the Glen, is a game, resilient terrier with a big dog attitude and very short legs. They are outstanding earthdogs and loyal companions, as long as their owners understand the terrier temperament and the rigors of maintaining its coat. The Glen of Imaal Terrier was accepted into the American Kennel Club’s Miscellaneous Class in 2001. It achieved full AKC recognition as part of the Terrier Group in 2004.

The average Glen of Imaal Terrier stands 12½ to a maximum of 14 inches at the withers and normally weighs approximately 35 pounds. Their harsh, medium-length double coat should be brushed regularly and hand stripped several times a year. The hair around their face and between their toes must be trimmed regularly as well. Glens can be blue, brindle or wheaten, which includes all shades from cream to red.
