Quite the lose cannon, the Irish Terrier is a dog that is not very shy at all.
They tend to be on the independent side and their stubborn nature can be a challenge when asked
to do something they have no desire to conform to. Their aggressive actions generally are
directed toward other animals such as other dogs and they are not exactly aggressive around
strangers that may enter their environments, they are more aloof and stand off with them
instead. Natural hunters that love to run and explore, the Irish Terrier will require some
attention be that in the form of mental stimulation or physical as they can get bored rather
quickly. They are energetic and very playful as well.
