The Irish Wolfhound is a historic sighthound dog breed from Ireland that inspired literature, poetry and mythology. This breed was originally used in war to drag men off horses and chariots. These big dogs might sound like the stuff of legends, but they are now known as sweet, affectionate and sometimes silly companions in our family.
According to the official the World Canine Federation standards, the height of these dogs varied from 32 to 34 inches (81- 86 cm) in males, and probably from 29 to 31 inches (73 -79 cm) in females. They got their name not for their appearance, they are named for their mix and their purpose – wolf hunting with dogs. And although the Irish Wolfhound can be a frightening sight for those who aren’t familiar with them, nobody can deny the fact that these creatures are incredibly delightful, beautiful, and big.
