The Glen of Imaal Terrier remains a rare breed throughout the world. Litters are relatively few in number. Most breeders have a long waiting list of prospective new owners. The Glen of Imaal Terrier Club of America provides a breeder referral service. Commencing a dialogue with a few breeders whose stock you like is highly recommended. Visiting breeders and attending dog shows also provide an opportunity to meet a Glen in person.
You should feel free to ask your breeder any and all questions you have. There are no silly questions. Similarly, the breeder will likely ask you many questions about your home, family, schedule, interests and experience with terriers, frequently via a written application. It is also unlikely that you will be able to pick the pup you want from a litter. It is far more likely that a pup or two will be selected, based on the breeders assessment of what would work best for you given the information you have provided.

Cost varies some by region - as do veterinary costs. Given the rarity of the breed and the consequential rarity of stud dogs, matings are often long distance affairs.

In addition, breeders will often hold on to pups until 9-12 weeks of age to best be able to assess the litter, thereby incurring greater veterinary, and food expenses. All of this is costly, and despite the price of a puppy, breeders do not breed to make a profit as there is none, but breed because they are dedicated to breeding the best Glens possible. Whatever the cost, your initial investment will be, over the 10-15 year lifespan of your Glen, your smallest investment. Veterinary expenses, food, supplies and all those little luxuries that you decide your Glen must have, will add up to a substantial amount over time. Dog ownership is indeed a financial commitment. Your breeder should provide you with appropriate registrations documents, veterinarian records, feeding instructions, and a pedigree.


Very rarely, an older dog (over a year of age) might come available. This Glen was perhaps a show prospect that didn't work out, or is a dog retired from breeding or showing. These Glens are often housebroken, socialized, and trained. If the rigors of puppyhood are daunting to you, this might be an option to consider. Rescued Glens are fortunately few and far between. They usually originated as imported stock from another country and might have extensive issues that need to be dealt with by anyone taking on a rescued dog.
