Photo Series Features Hilarious Photos Of Hoomans Irish Wolfhounds, And It’s Crazy How Large They Are


The Irish Wolfhounds got their name not for their appearance, but for their purpose— they were originally bred as wolf hunting with dogs. 

Although they're no longer used for hunting wolves, they're used for a much more important reason: hunting our affection.  Yes, these puppy companions are some of the friendliest dogs going around.  

But if you're looking for an Irish Wolfhound as a pet, beware… they're big. VERY BIG. According to the official the World Canine Federation standards, their average height is 32 inches (81cm) to 34 inches (86cm). And although the Irish Wolfhound can be a frightening sight for those who aren't familiar with them, their all-around friendliness is beyond compare.
