Hi, hope you don't mind me posting here. I'm a new member on the hunt for a new pup to go with my 3 year old Irish terrier. I've had experience of Borders as a child and think for personality you can't fault them. Have known people with the combination of an Irish and Border though and they have fought a lot. Not sure if this is because of a lack of socialisation and closeness in age or something about that particular breed combo. Was wondering what your opinion was? Have you found borders aggressive with other dogs or is it only if provoked? The Irish in question was like that with other dogs too whereas our Irish has been socialised from an early age (puppy and training classes) and seems to be fine with other dogs when out on walks. (he's now 3 by the way) Be really grateful for any advice you can give. Having seen those two dogs fighting until blood was drawn and then being the best of pals the next I am cautious.
