In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I present to you the Irish Wolfhound. See more…

The Irish Wolfhound is the tallest of all dogs, measuring 35 inches high. Like the mastiff and the greyhound, the Irish Wolfhound has a very ancient history. Early Irish literature refers to these dogs as “Irish dogs,” “Big Dogs of Ireland,” Greyhounds of Ireland,” “Great Hounds of Ireland,” and “Wolfdogs of Ireland.” The wolfhound was probably the favored dog of the Celts as they wandered and hunted in Ireland as likeness of the hounds can be found in Celtic engravings.
