Irish Terrier

Irish Terrier


Height: 17-18 inches

Weight: 25-27 lbs.

Life Span: 12-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
Irish terriers are loyal, lively, and affectionate. They are good family dogs and like to play with children but may behave aggressively if their property--toys and food bowls--is touched.

Some lines can be highly protective and may snap at anyone they perceive as a threat to their family. They can do well in obedience class but may be aggressive toward other dogs and may mistake cats as prey.

Secure the yard with a fence and always walk Irish terriers on a leash. When properly trained, the Irish terrier is a good companion in the city, suburbs, or country.

Appearance
The Irish terrier has bushy eyebrows and a beard. Its coat is short, dense, and wiry. Its color is solid bright red, golden red, red wheaten, or wheaten.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The Irish terrier should be brushed and combed twice a week and trimmed every three months. To avoid behavioral problems, such as nonstop barking or digging, this energetic dog needs long walks, hikes, and vigorous play in a secured area.

Origins
The Irish terrier is one of the oldest terrier breeds. It was developed in the 18th century for hunting rats, small and big game, and as a land and water retriever.

During World War I this fearless terrier was used as a patrol and messenger dog.

Special Alerts
The Irish Terrier is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners.

Breed-related health concerns include cystine stones (bladder stones caused by an inability of the kidneys to absorb the amino acid cystine).
