Ancient Dog Breed Will Surprise You
With its large size and shaggy coat, the Irish wolfhound is a somewhat intimidating-looking dog.
Don't judge a book by its cover: The Irish wolfhound has the grace and speed of a greyhound, the gentle, loyal nature of a Great Dane, and the protectiveness of a mastiff.
The breed also has an ancient history that has played a role in shaping the dog's status as a popular family dog.
As with any pet, be sure to regularly consult a veterinarian for routine care and medical advice for your four-legged friend.
