10 Most Popular Dog Breeds in Ireland

National Dog Day or not, we’ve always had a soft spot for dogs on the Emerald Isle. No matter if wolfhounds, terriers, or spaniels, they are an integral part of many Irish families – and our Instagram feed, too.
In three months alone, the Irish have posted more than two million pictures of their paw-some pooches, Northern Ireland and the south together!

    Cocker Spaniels first became known at the beginning of the 20th century, and work on their breeding began in the 1880s. From the name of the breed, it is clear that England is the homeland of the English cockers. Often, however, English Cocker Spaniels are confused with their American counterparts - these breeds are similar but somewhat different in the exterior.

    The history of the appearance of the French Bulldogs is rather complicated. In England, fights with the participation of fighting bulldogs, which were set on bulls, were popular. But at the beginning of the 18th century, such entertainments were banned, and the Bulldogs began to turn from ferocious fighters into loyal companions.

  3. Robert Mason

    The Springer Spaniel is the largest representative of the spaniel and is considered to be a great performing gun dog. This is an intelligent service dog that can detect drugs, illegal immigrants, and other contraband by smell. Springer is the oldest hunting breed.
