There is evidence that the original Irish Wolfhound existed as early as 393 A.D., which lends credence to the notion that this canine breed is among the oldest known. The breed is renowned for its intelligence, bravery, and physical prowess, which made them valuable as watchdogs, hunting companions, and combat dogs. The Irish-Wolfhound Club was established in 1885, and the American Kennel Club granted it official status in 1897.

Irish wolfhounds have a very short lifespan compared to the life spans of many other breeds of dogs. According to the information on DogChannel.com, the average lifespan for these hounds might range from eight to ten years.

When it comes to their dimensions, Irish wolfhounds are enormous dogs, with heights that range between 30 and 34 inches, measured from their shoulders to the top of their heads. They are distinguished from other canine breeds in that they stand the tallest on average.

The Irish Wolfhound is a breed that epitomizes the term “gentle giant.” However, despite his reputation as a fearless hunter that has endured for ages, he has a kind disposition and lives in the company of companions.
