Originating in Ireland, the Irish Wolfhound was originally bred as a war and a hunting dog. The tallest of all the dog breeds, the Irish Wolfhound is actually a gentle giant. They are a great family dog and get along well with everyone – including other dogs, children, and even cats! Their friendly and gentle nature makes them unstable watchdogs – although their size alone may scare off a potential intruder. Though they are not a rambunctious breed, they are not recommended for apartment living due to their size. Early and consistent training will help control them as they grow in size. Overall, though an intimidating size, the Irish Wolfhound is a wonderful family companion.
