5  Clumber Spaniels

11 Glen of Imaal Terriers

I was fortunate enough to own an Irish Kerry Blue Terrier, called Millie, a rehome dog.  Millie sadly was rehomed 5 times in 1 year before we took her on.  Not an easy dog but at very needy dog who showed love, but on her terms.  I have only ever seen another 2 other Irish Kerry Blue Terriers in our neighbourhood.

Sadly, I was only too well aware of the decline in popularity of many of the breeds above including the Kerry Blue as each year I visit the Discover Dogs show at Earls Court in London and had been made aware of the plight of the vulnerable breeds.  How strange that the choice of dogs seems to have changed in favour of Labs and Retrievers.

If you are considering purchasing one of the above vulnerable breeds, contact the Kennel Club for further information and a list of breeders.
