Coming from Co. Kerry in Ireland and said to be the ancestor of the Kerry Blue. This is a strongly built 'square' dog with more 'body' than the Kerry. This was a working dog on the Irish farms. His small ears are folded forward. The tail is carried high but not over the back when not docked. In personality he is active, versatile and tireless. The coat is thick and soft and silky, with a wavy or curl.
Colour is wheaten, youngsters may have dark markings but these should clear when mature.
In Britain thes breed is shown in full coat, In Ireland he is trimmed out, much like a Kerry Blue.
