Don’t let the name fool you. Irish Wolfhounds aren’t wolves, but they were originally used for wolf hunting. But as scary as their names are, they’re actually beautiful and adorable. They’re also pretty big, too. Their height is usually 32 to 34 inches (81 cm to 86 cm). So, running into one of these Irish Wolfhounds can be a frightening experience. But the fact is that these creatures are super friendly once they get to know you. So, to desensitize the stigma, some folks started posting photos of their Wolfhounds to prove that these beauties aren’t really beasts at all.
There’s not just one, but several of these creatures, and they can all smell the fresh meat of an approaching burglar. So, unless you’re a neighbor coming over to borrow a cup of sugar, you might want to stay away.
