Their bravery and spirit make them incomparable pals, and they possess great tenacity. Not surprising, considering that Irish Terriers were used to transport messages between troops on the front lines in World War I. Loyal and friendly, Irish Terriers hardily adapt to any situation, and they are deeply committed to their owners. Irish Terriers served as long time mascots for the Notre Dame Football team, providing half-time entertainment for adoring crowds. The Irish Terrier was first recognized by the AKC in 1885.
