Although Irish Wolfhounds are gentle and cuddly dogs, some people get the wrong perception of them because of their looks. They’re bigger than average and can sometimes look intimidating.
Irish Wolfhounds got their name from the fact that people used to go wolf-hunting with them. They are one of the oldest dog breeds, since there are suggestions they have been brought to Ireland as early as 7000 BC.
Irish wolfhounds are huge. Their average height is around 32 to 34 inches (81-86 cm). Despite their appearance, these dogs can be cute goofballs and bundles of joy as well. They are usually clingy, loving, and adorable, just like smaller dogs, and these photos are proof of the adorable creatures Irish wolfhound are.
