Who can resist the bearded beauty of the Irish Terrier. A medium-sized terrier with a powerful jaw, long whiskers and bearded muzzle, ending in a cute black nose. They have a rough-looking wiry outer coat that is lined with a softer undercoat, however the hair on their ears is shorter and often darker than on the rest of its hair and they have bushy eyebrows. Their straight muscular legs are perfect for digging or chasing.
You may be surprised by how much an Irish Terrier east considering its size, however they are undemanding and won't be the sort of dog to tap their food bowl expectantly. Irish Terriers are active little dogs and will definitely get out what they put in.
The Irish Terrier has a hard double coat that is rather easy maintain. Dead hair can be removed by brushing once a week with a stiff bristle brush. Bath time should be once every two weeks in the warmer months and once a month in the colder months. It is also recommended that Irish Terriers are hand-stripped/ hand-plucked by a professional groomer twice a year (just like an Airedale).
