Wicklow Terriers

Glen of Imaal Terriers also called Wicklow Terriers

The Glen of Imaal Terrier is a breed of dog of the terrier category and one of four Irish terrier breeds. It is sometimes called the Irish Glen of Imaal Terrier or the Wicklow Terrier.  They were bred to hunt small prey such as rats, as well as larger targets such as foxes and badgers (which could weigh more than the dogs, at up to 40 lbs). Glens don’t tend to bark much—perhaps because they were bred to be silent while working. And they’re known for being gentler in disposition than most other terriers. Some people describe them as “stoic.” They only stand up to 14 inches tall and weigh up to 40 pounds, but Glens have surprisingly muscular hindquarters. In fact, Glen lovers sometimes call them “big dogs on short legs.”
