Believed to have been brought to Ireland as early as 7,000 B.C., this dog’s name came from it’s purpose, which was wolf hunting, hunting or guarding. Living up to it’s massive name, coming face to face with this dog may be a little daunting as it is the tallest of all dog breeds.
Kerry Blue Terrier
First found in the mountains of Kerry in Ireland, the Kerry Blue was originally bred to control vermin such as rats, rabbits, badgers, foxes, otters, and hares. Overtime they have become working dogs used for a number of jobs like herding cattle and sheep, and being guard dogs.
