Glen of Imaal Terrier?

Post by larry daws » Sun, 26 Dec 1993 12:37:37



Just read through the 1994 DOGS USA annual and read about a Glen of Imaal
Terrier.  It is an Irish working terrier that has not yet been recognized
by the AKC.  I am not particularly fond of 'little' dogs, but this guy
sounded pretty neat.  To quote the magazine, "...used against badgers...its
courage is legendary."  "...works quietly, keeping silent even when facing
something as formidable as a badger."  "...may weight as much as 35 pounds,
every ounce packed with gameness."

Now I certainly am not planning on confronting any badgers or the like and,
alas, my wife certainly will not let me have another dog, but I am curious
to know if anyone can supply anymore information about these dogs.  Are
they difficult to find, what would one cost, etc.

Thanks,
