About this Breed

The Irish Terrier is a very distinguished looking breed. This medium-sized, well-proportioned animal looks somewhat like the Wirehaired fox terrier and is sometimes mistaken for that breed. The Irish Terrier has a flat skull that gives this breed one of its most unique characteristics and features. The healthy dog will have long whiskers and a much-bearded muzzle. The Irish Terrier has very powerful jaws for a animal of its size. The unique stop is most noticeable in profile. When the animal is healthy the nose will be black. The ears are V-shaped and will normally fold forward. It should be noted that the hair on the ears is shorter and will often be much darker than on the rest of the body. The Irish Terrier has very bushy eyebrows. The eyes of this breed are small and dark, but they are alert to any action that takes place nearby. Some people would suggest that the eyes are intelligent, and that is a fair assessment. Usually, the front legs of the Irish Terrier are long, straight, and muscular. For show dogs, any sign of weakness in the front legs is a demerit. The Irish Terrier's tail is docked about 3/4 of its original length and the tail is carried erect. It is generally accepted that the body of the Irish Terrier should be moderately long. This is a powerful dog and the back must be strong and straight for those animals that are being placed in shows.
