A superb athlete, fierce hunter and endurance runner, the Irish Wolfhound is an ancient breed from the Greyhound family. The tallest dog breed, the Irish Wolfhound is alert, courageous and nonaggressive. His affectionate and trusting nature makes him an excellent family companion. This giant breed needs a spacious area for daily exercise, and his harsh coat needs regular brushing.
