Probably the most important and valuable website for the health of our breed is: Glen-Footprints Website & Glen of Imaal Terrier Database
Kudos to the people who have volunteered their time and resources to make this thorough and extensive database available to serious Glen researchers.

British Glen site
Originally a rescue site; this site lays out very bluntly the challenges of the Glen of Imaal Terrier’s complex nature.
Interesting historical photos and a clever and sobering interactive quiz to determine whether you can handle a Glen. I do not agree that no Glen can ever be trusted throughout its lifetime with other small animal pets like birds, cats, rabbits, hamsters, etc., (some Glens live quite harmoniously with such, but you MUST train it thoroughly and you must be regarded by your Glen as the pack leader to be successful with this. It helps to start out with a puppy.) I certainly do agree that you must be willing and able to be the boss if you want to live happily with a Glen (which, by the way, will make your Glen happy, too.)
