Irish Wolfhound

The origin of the Irish Wolfhound has been lost in antiquity, however, from illustrations dating back to 1400 BC we know that the Celts had huge hounds. Irish mythology, legends and sagas abound with the exploits of this ancient breed. This dog was the companion of kings - whether at war, on the hunt or just by the hearth. History tells of many hounds being sent to the royal houses of both Europe and Scandinavia. The breed has also come close to extinction.
