This book for general readers and dog lovers profiles nine Irish dog breeds, all native to Ireland, including the Irish wolfhound, the Kerry blue terrier, the Irish red setter, the Glen of Imaal terrier, the Irish terrier, and the Kerry Beagle.
Other traditional breeds under threat include the Sussex Spaniel (only 74 pups last year), the Glen of Imaal Terrier (41) and the Smooth Collie (53).
Glen of Imaal terriers are now rarer than giant pandas and experts fear they could be extinct within 10 years.
