Not just a dog, another family member!!!
Geordan Irish Terriers
In choosing a puppy, it is important to find a breeder who you are comfortable with. The breeder should be willing to show you his adult animals and their living conditions. He should also be willing to spend time explaining Irish Terrier temperament, grooming and training needs.
Puppies are cute. You should not buy on impulse. If the breeder is not open in answering questions, don't buy the puppy. If the living conditions are not clean, don't buy the puppy. If the puppy is not friendly or outgoing or is not clean and bright eyed, don't buy the puppy. It is definitely a buyer beware world. Remember, you are acquiring a family member and committing to its care for the next twelve to sixteen years or more.
