The history of the Irish Wolfhound may be long, going back to the 2nd century. Irish Kings used to pride themselves on their wolf dogs or hounds, precursors to the Wolfhound. The dogs were known in Iceland as well. The old wolf hound was used for hunting deer, boar and wolves as well as guarding property. These were pretty ferocious dogs unlike the modern Irish Wolfhound. It is believed that some of the old war hound breed still survives in the Irish Wolfhound but interbreeding with other types of large dogs, such as greyhounds, Great Danes and Mastiffs, created a different type of dog, and the original Irish hound is extinct. The Irish Wolfhound was known also as the Irish greyhound in early times. They are the world’s tallest dogs and come in a variety of colors such as cream, black, reds and grays.
