About Irish terriers
The coat is always red. The harsh wiry coat benefits from being hand-stripped rather than clipped, though the beard and eyebrows can be tidied up with scissors. Brushing
the coat to remove dead undercoat will also help.
An Irish terrier will often pick a fight with other dogs. They make good guard dogs.
Early development of dog breeds
The tail used to be docked but docking is
going out of fashion.
Height: 46 - 48 cms at shoulder

|If your Irish terrier gets into a fight with another dog, don't grab his collar, tail, or ears! Your are likely to get bitten. Try squirting the dogs in the face with water & lemon juice.
"Like one who grabs a dog by the ears is a passer-by who meddles in a quarrel not his own."
Proverbs 26 v 17 The Bible.
