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.
