Irish Wolfhounds have a majestic heritage that is believed to date back to 391 AD. Named for their mix, Wolfhounds were used by the Gaels as hunting dogs, who called them Cú Faol (wolfhound). While they might sound like the stuff of legends – they are now known as sweet, affectionate and sometimes silly pets. According to the official the World Canine Federation standards, their desired height is 32 inches (81cm) to 34 inches (86cm).
