IRISH TERRIER APPEARANCE:
Irish Terriers are coloured golden red, red wheaten, or wheaten. The dogs can become large and grow up to 46 to 48 cm (18-19 in) with a weight of 11 to 12 kg (25-27 lb).
The breed's origin is not known. It is believed to have descended from the rough haired Fox Terrier. Its selection began only in 1870. The Irish Terrier Club was founded in 1879 and the breed was displayed for the first time in Glasgow in 1920.
The Irish Terrier is intelligent and a specialist in hunting rabbits and otters due to its very good sense of smell.
