We have 5 Irish Terriers, 2 Labradors and 2 cats living together with no problem. When raised with other pets from puppyhood, Irish Terriers do fine. Our daughter has an Irish female who is great with her 4 sons, as well as all of their friends. No child under 5 years should be left alone with ANY kind of dog. In over 18 years, we have never had any of our Irish Terriers be aggressive, or bite any person, from baby, to toddler to teenagers to adults. They are truly people lovers, however, they will bark when a stranger comes to the door, or tries to come uninvited into our yard, etc. They are great family pets, and have few hereditary health issues, as have many purebred dogs. Also easy care with little shedding.

My Irish terrier is only 6 months old and so bouncy and reckless he has knocked me over by jumping up and running at me a few times. But when my small grandson visits he walks up to him slowly and carefully and sits at his side I could not believe it.I feel he has a real understanding of who can play a little rough and who can not which if true shows amazing inteligence.
