Kerry Blue Puppies at Play on a Fall Day
Kerry Blue Terriers are very active and love the outdoors. All the pictures below were taken in about 15 minutes... Lots of play, looking for squirrels, and exploring the yard.

The photographs below were taken on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 on a cloudy fall day. Taking pictures of animated Kerry Blue Terriers can be challenging. (All the pictures the taken at 1600 ISO and a fast shutter speed of 1/200 or 1/250.)

The Kerry was originally bred as an all purpose farm dog and we breed and raise with this original intent to produce a very athletic medium sized, well proportioned family dog with great temperaments and personalities with humans and other dogs and animals. The coat is very resilient with daily brushing and care.

The older dog pictured below is Brianna at 13 months old when the pictures were taken on Wednesday, October 21, 2009. Johnny is 17 weeks old. These two puppies illustrate the changes of a Kerry Blue Terrier during the first year. The most notable difference is the coat color. All Kerry puppies are born black. Johnny's coat is just starting to change. Brianna coat is now a medium grey blue color.

The coloring of a Kerry is a box of chocolates... You never quite know what the color will be of a mature dog and can be any shade of blue gray or gray blue from the deep slate to light blue gray, As a puppy it goes through several changes in color from black at birth to the mature gray blue or blue gray.

The color goes through many transitions including dark blue, shades or tinges of brown, and all combinations of colors of black, brown, grey, and blue. Dogs of 18 months of age or older should have changed color and not be black. (In the AKC Show Ring a black dog 18 months of age or older is disqualified.)
