Photo Series Features Owners With Their Irish Wolfhounds, And It’s Crazy How Adorable They Are


The Irish Wolfhound is a breed of domestic dog, specifically a very large sighthound from Ireland. The name originates from its purpose—wolf hunting with dogs—rather than from its appearance. Originally developed from war hounds with the purpose of being a hunting or guard dog.

If you’re looking at getting one as a pet, beware… as these guys are big. Huge in fact! According to the official the World Canine Federation standards, their desired 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 can’t be any higher.

To give these pampered pooches the attention they deserve, we’ve compiled a list of their funniest photos, so scroll down to check them out and upvote your favorite entries.

    One of these dogs has a clearly larger than life presence, whose mere physicality, elevated by an extreme amount of self confidence, intimidates any would be intruders and provides a sense of security for the entire household. The other one is an Irish Wolfhound.
