Is your pup Irish?
If they are, you’ll probably recognize it easily through their bright, vibrant, curious, and enthusiastic personality. From the Emerald Isle comes a list of beautiful treasures, and their pups are certainly high on that list.
Be savvy this St. Patrick’s Day and know a few things about the most Irish dogs around.
Irish Setter- A perfect build, and described as one of the most beautifully balanced and most elegant dogs ever. Known for their deep enthusiasm and very high sensibility, they are known for their superb hunting skills.
Irish Terrier- Did you know that Irish Terriers were used to transport messages between troops on the front lines in World War I? Neat right? Not too surprising if you are this man’s best friend, because you know he is of the most loyal breed.
Irish Water Spaniel- One of 9 breeds recognized dating back to 1600, making this pup one of the oldest spaniels, although their origin still remains unknown. It seems as if they evolved from dogs in Persia, and made their way to Ireland via Spain. Their long, crisp, curly cue fur is one feature that you will never miss, or want to and they are easily identified by their rat tail!
Irish Wolfhound- Dating back to Roman 391 A.D. and described as giant, noble, stable, strong, and sturdy, this dog is full of pride. They even have the intelligence to separate family, friend, or poe with
their very skillful intelligence.
Irish Red & White Setter- The newest of the AKC breed, and as mysterious and mythical as the early days of Ireland. Undoubtedly unique with its spotted texture, this pup is raved for their dedication to their loving family.
Irish Glen of Imaal- Ready for a chase? Meet your match. The quietest pup of all the spaniels is one fast cookie, with length outshining their height and is adventurous and courageous. Discovered during reign of Elizabeth I, they were highly recognized as silent hunting dogs. They appreciate strong leadership and require heavy discipline, and in return, they are impeccably behaved.
Kerry Blue Terrier- From Kerry Blue, Ireland the breed is well known for hunting and often used to work with the English police. One of their best features, they are a great dog for kids.
Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier- Most happy when he is exercising, he is a dog that belongs with a large family to grant him the attention he deserves. Don’t be surprised when this pup jumps into your arms or goes straight to your face to kiss you as a greeting!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from TrueFoodForDogs!
At True we start with the highest quality, USDA certified, restaurant grade meats, fresh vegetables and whole grains, all of which are approved for human consumption.
We cook our homemade food for dogs, puppy foods and dog treats in small batches in our own dog kitchen and dog bakery. This is a critical point as it relates to quality control and commitment. All of our healthy food for dogs recipes are prepared by cooking our all natural ingredients to the minimum allowed temperature in order to preserve the maximum nutritional value. Whole grains and fresh vegetables must be cooked to a very specific point so that nutrients are preserved and a dog’s system can still benefit from the nourishment these healthy dog food ingredients offer.
Our dog kitchen and dog bakery in Newport Beach, California was designed from an empty shell with only one purpose in mind- Making the world’s best food for dogs. We didn’t convert some ‘out of business’ restaurant or alter some old catering kitchen, we built our space from scratch, dominated by our dog kitchen, for this sole purpose. Every piece of equipment and its location is strategic to our homemade food for dogs. “Gentle cooking” is not just marketing jargon. Cooking fresh food for dogs to the minimum allowable temperatures is much more difficult than overcooking everything and putting it in a can or a bag, but your dog will benefit greatly from this process. All of the ingredients in our recipes– meats, vegetables, etc. deliver far greater nutritional value when cooked properly. Under cooked and a dog’s system cannot digest the ingredients (which makes them useless). Over cook and there is little or no nutritional value remaining.
