Dog Breeds

  • Irish Terrier

    The Irish Terrier is solid in stature, but also agile and elegant. The breed is moderately long in the body with shoulders that slope into its back. Its chest is distinctly deep and muscular.

  • Group: Terrier
    Lifespan: 13–15 yr
    Height: 16–18 in
    Weight: 19–38 lb

  • Care

    Regular brushing, stripping, and trimming are a must to keep the Irish Terrier's coat looking its best. The dog's outer coat should be hand-stripped rather than clipped, if possible. If done weekly, brushing helps remove dirt and loose hair. And keeping your dog's nails trimmed short will prevent discomfort or issues walking.

  • Disorders

    Urolithiasis (stones) X-linked muscular dystrophy
    Progressive retinal atrophy

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
