Introduction

Irish Wolfhounds are an ancient breed. These giant-sized dogs make loyal, affectionate pets. Irish Wolfhounds are the tallest dog breed on earth. They can reach up to seven feet tall when standing on their back feet. Despite their size, they are gentle but sometimes clumsy. They normally get along well with most folks and as a result do not make good watch dogs. They were originally used as hunting dogs or war dogs but time has tamed them and unless a small animal goes speeding by, your Wolfhound will usually stick close to your side. He needs proper socialization and consistent training to make him the good canine citizen you want him to be but once you do, you'll have a faithful companion for as long as he lives
