Irish Terrier

The Irish claim that I am the oldest breed of dog known to man, but the first public introduction of the Irish Terrier was at a pedigree-only dog show in Dublin in 1872.

I was developed to be a ratter and a guard dog, and I do both extremely well, if I do say so myself. If you donít have rats, I can just double up on my talents for guarding.

I am also known to be a pretty good retriever, if you like to hunt. I am versatile, with lots of energy to spare.

My coat is hard and wiry with a soft undercoat. Hand stripping is usual for show dogs, but a little clipping here and there will do nicely if I am to be a pet.

When fully grown, I am about 18 inches tall (45.7 centimeters) and I weigh between 25 and 27 pounds (11.3 to 12.2 kilograms).
