50 Pics Of Irish Wolfhounds That Show How Big These Big Doggos Are

Ever heard of a sweet beast?

Kinda sounds like an oxymoron but it is very true when you talk about the famous Irish Wolfhounds. The Irish wolfhound is a breed from Ireland as the name suggests. You can’t help but notice an Irish Wolfhound from miles away because of its huge size. If you judge them by their looks they do look very scary. But in reality, it is the exact opposite. You know how we spot a wild animal every now and then and feel the urge to pet them but then there’s this fear that the animal may attack. That is not the case here. Irish Wolfhounds are known to be very sweet actually. They are very well known for being extremely patient, loving, caring, loyal, and generous. The reason why most of us are unaware of this is because of their size and weight. A male Irish Wolfhound weighs at least 120 pounds and they’re about 3 feet tall at the very least. Who wouldn’t be scared of that? Not going to lie to you guys but I even I was extremely scared of tall and big dogs. I don’t know, I could never get myself to pet one. But only recently I have realized that all of that doesn’t matter. One drop of pure love, that’s what every dog requires.


And today we are here to prove that these dogs who physically look like beasts are actually one of the sweetest dog breeds in the whole world.
