These affable, adorable terriers are hard not to spot once you know what to look for. Their soft, golden, wooly, coat and spritely, confident gait come together in unmistakable terrier perfection. They possess the vivacity typical of the Terrier Group but with a lesser degree of scrappiness. They share a family tree with the Kerry Blue and the Irish Terrier but this was a commoner’s dog, patrolling the farm, discouraging vermin, herding livestock, and hunting with its owners. They are adaptable to a variety of living scenarios and are good family pets. This terrier sheds minimally but needs regular grooming to keep its handsome coat free of dirt and tangles.
