Bred in County Kerry is true.
An Irish dog with the coat of blue.
A terrier in mind and body sound,
Well balanced in structure all around.
A dog to converse with Leprechauns t’is said.
Eyes sparkle with mischief inside his head!
To be owned by a Kerry is a blessing indeed.
A lifelong commitment is what he does need. . .
