    Irish Wolfhound |Ireland|

    Irish Wolfhound |Ireland|

    The tallest of the hound breeds, the Irish Wolfhound is something of a couch potato and loves nothing better than to lie around for most of the day in the most comfortable spot. These dogs have superb temperaments, are calm when indoors, and are generally easygoing, making them excellent companions for people who have large houses. They are huge dogs, and although their energy levels are low, they do require a lot of space and daily exercise.

    History

    Irish Wolfhounds have been highly valued from Roman times as guardians, hunters, and companions. Despite their delightful temperaments now, Irish Wolfhounds were known historically for being ferocious and fearless, used to hunt wolves as their name suggests. The coat of arms of early Irish kings bore an image of the Irish Wolfhound and the words “gentle when stroked, fierce when provoked.”

    Wolfhound puppies initially grow very quickly and will be large by six months of age. However, they continue to grow slowly for several more years and are not fully matured until they are at least three years old.
