Dog Breeds

Irish Terrier

Size
Appearance
Irish Terriers come in solid colours of red, red/wheaten or yellow/red. White hair can be seen on the chest and some adult dogs will have black shading. The outer coat is very hard and wirey, the undercoat being softer and finer.
Characteristics
The breed was used as messenger dogs in the first World War, which attributed to their fearless reputation. The Irish Terrier is believed to be one of the oldest Irish breeds originating from the districts around Cork in Southern Ireland. Having a good memory and wanting to please, this breed is easy to train as long as training is done in a consistent manner. Plenty of variety should be given during the training routine.
Temperament
Can be boisterous and very energetic, therefore plenty of exercise is a must. However, due to their over-boisterous natures with other dogs, care must be taken when allowed off the lead. They are prone to digging. Affectionate and friendly with people, particularly children.This breed will be loyal and devoted to the family.
