Irish Terrier and Irish Terrier pictures
The Irish (Red) Terrier is sturdy, medium-sized, well-proportioned,
strong in substance and bone structure, and free from clumsiness.
This breed looks very similar to the Wirehaired Fox Terrier, but
somewhat taller and longer. The rough looking wiry outer jacket
is lined with a softer undercoat. The Irish Terrier is solid colored
and may be red, golden, or wheaten. They have speed, power, and
endurance. These dogs are neither cloddy, nor cobby, and should
be built on lines of speed with a graceful, racing outline. The
Irish Terrier makes an excellent companion whether he/she is a playmate,
hiker, watchdog or just footwarmer. He/she is loyal to every member
of the family a top-notch terrier known for the fighting spirit.
The Irish Terrier is hot-tempered, reckless and exceptionally courageous.
These animated, friendly, determined, spirited and loyal dogs are
affectionately called "Daredevils" by their fanciers.
They play hard and are a good friend for active children, they love
to play with them. Very affectionate and kind with humans, but quiet
combative with other dogs and should not be trusted with non-canine
pets. Bold, inquisitive and ready for action and adventure. This
breeid is intelligent and trainable, but somewhat willful, can be
quite a handful. Train firmly right from the beginning is needed.
The Irish Terrier should be socialized well with people at an early
age. They can be difficult to housebreak. This dog likes to dig,
explore and chase things. They should be kept on a leash except
in a safe enclosed space. This is truly a loyal and entertaining
