Irish Terrier Dog Breed

Irish Terriers

His origin  has been much debated, but there is indisputable evidence that he is one of the oldest of the terrier breeds.

The Irish Terrier is an incomparable pal, and the loyal, unyielding protector of those he loves. None is hardier or more adaptable. He is equally at home in the country, or in a city apartment.

He is the interested playmate and protector of children. In their service, as in his master's, he challenges whatever may menace. He is a born guardsman.

Called the "daredevil", this dog is fearless. Sensitive, very intelligent, and truly a good friend.

Height at the shoulder should be 18 inches. Weight- males, 27 pounds; females, 25 pounds.

Coat Type - dense and wiry in texture, of rich quality with a broken appearance. Colors - whole-colored in shades of red to wheaten.
