15 Reasons Why an Irish Wolfhound Shouldn’t Be Trusted

The first written evidence of these dogs is found in the Roman consul in 391. Irish greyhounds undoubtedly took part in the breeding of the Scottish Deerhounds. A pair of Irish greyhounds was a highly valued gift from the royal courts of Europe, Scandinavia, and others in the Middle Ages until the 17th century. Thus, these dogs came to England, Spain, France, Sweden, Denmark, Persia, India, and Poland. The change of the name of the dog to the wolfhound happened, apparently, in the 15th century, at which time each county was obliged to keep 24 wolfhounds in order to protect the farm herds from the attacks of wolves.

#1 Interestingly, these dogs, due to their relatively soft nature, cannot be used as watchdogs.

#2 This breed is not suitable for housing. It is much better for the health of dogs, given their size, to keep them in a country house, on a free range or in an aviary.

#3 In general, the Irish Wolfhound requires a lot of attention, including daily long walks and constant training.
