Shamrocks, Leprechauns and Irish Setters. What more could St. Patrick have wished for a celebration! Maybe to kiss the Blarney Stone, but who needs a Blarney Stone when you could have a big wet Irish Wolfhound kiss.
There are so many wonderful dog breeds of Irish descent. The Terriers of Ireland include the Irish Terrier, Kerry Blue Terrier, Glen of Imaal Terrier and Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. The Irish Gun Dogs include the Irish Setter, Irish Water Spaniel and Irish Red and White Setter. The Irish Hounds include the Kerry Beagle and Irish Wolfhound.
Mixed breed dogs, also known today as Hybrid dogs, are a combination of two or more purebred dogs. The hybrid dogs, such as the Golden Irish, have the traits and personality of both the Irish Setter and a Golden Retriever. Another common hybrid is the Irish Doodle, which is a mix of a Standard Poodle and an Irish Setter.

Today, the hybrids, terriers, hounds and spaniels are embraced by dog lovers all around the world!
