The Irish Wolfhound was a treasured companion to people as far back as 7000 BC! Not only did they hunt and fight with their owners, but they were the guardians of their castles, playmates of their children and after a hard day's work, they relaxed next to their beloved families. Although they were in danger of disappearing, the breed was successfully revived and became the Irish Wolfhound we know and love today.
