The breed nearly became extinct in the mid-nineteenth century, but was saved through breeding with Deerhounds, Great Danes and Borzoi.
Description Irish Wolfhounds are very large dogs, with some growing to the size of a small pony. They have shaggy coats and long heads with pointy muzzles. Ears are carried against the head.
