Dog Breed of the Day: Irish Terrier
From Dog Breed Info: The Irish Terrier is courageous, energetic and loyal, often affectionately called “daredevils” by their fanciers. Sweet with their families, they are entertaining companions. The Irish Terrier is a good friend for active children, loving a good play. Bold, inquisitive and ready for action and adventure. Intelligent, they are very trainable. They have a strong protective instinct and therefore need dominant owners. The Irish Terrier is a medium-sized dog that is somewhat longer than it is tall. The long head is flat between the ears and is in good proportion to the rest of the body. It has a slight stop that is not very noticeable unless you view the dog from the side. If any of you out there own an Irish Terrier we’d love to hear any stories. Do you have to be bold with him? Does it take a commanding presence? And if so how did your terrier eventually behave? If you have any pictures of your Irish Terrier please be sure to send them to us. Also any videos or stories to share would be great.
