Wolfhound definition and meaning

What is a "wolfhound"?

The Wolfhound, also known as the Irish Wolfhound, is a breed of dog known for its remarkable size and strength. They are one of the largest dog breeds, with males often reaching heights of 32 to 34 inches at the shoulder and weighing up to 150 pounds or more. Wolfhounds have a long and powerful body with a rough, wiry coat that comes in various colors. They are known for their noble and dignified appearance, with a regal bearing that commands respect. Despite their imposing size, Wolfhounds are generally gentle and friendly dogs, known for their calm and patient temperament. They are often described as "gentle giants" due to their affectionate and loyal nature. Wolfhounds are typically good with children and other animals, although early socialization and training are important. They require moderate exercise and regular grooming, and are best suited for families or individuals who have ample space to accommodate their size and exercise needs.
