Breed Feature of the Week: Irish Wolfhound

October 15, 2007

The Irish Wolfhound is an ancient breed of dog originall bred for hunting wolf, hence the name. They are the tallest dog breed in the world. They have been said to be the equal of a lion in the past, but are gentle in nature towards humans. Their motto is “Gentle when stroked, fierce when provoked.” This particular Irish Wolfhound is Liam, who lives in Pittsburgh. Liam is a mellow dog who loves to go on ambling walks and greet all his friends every day.

Any Blogging Irish Wolfhounds out there?

    My dog Smokey looked exactly like a small Wolfie – I’m so sorry I ever neutered him! He was 68 pounds and the most wonderful creature I have ever known. He has told me from the beyond to go get another dog…I’d be interested in a young rescue wolfhound… any ideas?
    In Pittsburgh (and Frick Park)
