PURINA: Your Pet, Our Passion

Glen of Imaal Terrier

Named after a remote region of Ireland’s Wicklow Mountains where the breed originated, the Glen of Imaal Terrier is a powerful dog originally bred to go to ground after foxes and badgers. This spunky terrier is an adoring companion that likes to be near his owner but shouldn’t be trusted with noncanine pets. The Glen of Imaal Terrier’s harsh coat requires stripping, trimming and regular brushing.
Living Considerations
  • Good with older children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
