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."  " 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.
