The original Irish Wolfhound has been around for a long time compared to other breeds. This breed was documented as early as 393 A.D. These Irish Wolfhounds are very intelligent and courageous and have good strength. Because of that, they were treated as guardians, hunters, and war dogs. In 1885, the Irish Wolfhound Club was formed, and it was recognized by the AKC in 1897.
This dog breed has a shorter lifespan compared to many other species. According to dogchannel.com, these Irish Wolfhounds have a life span of around 8 – 10 years.
So, the iconic feature of this breed is its massive size, and these hounds are considered the tallest dogs. Their height is about 30 and 34 inches high when taken from their shoulders.
They are actually gentle, even if they are giants. Also, they have been respected as a brave hunter for centuries. Nevertheless, they have a sweet temperament and thrive on friendship.
