The Majestic Irish Wolfhound
It is my pleasure in welcoming you to Ballyhara Irish Wolfhounds. My website is a commemoration to one of the world's oldest canine hunters. From the mists of antiquity, this breed evolved as a Sighthound, also known as Gazehounds, and was designed for hunting and dispatching large game. As such, he is truly a unique breed but be forewarned; he is not ideal for every household, although the Irish Wolfhound has enjoyed a rare, very close bond with man.
Please, take your time and review this site thoroughly, as it provides honest, legitimate information about the Irish Wolfhound. Pay particular attention to my Facts & Info page that includes ample amount of breed facts, but also advice and instruction. Most importantly, though, besides the significant and prominent breed requirements of acreage and fencing, take into account the typical and unexpected costs & expenses that come with owning this giant hound breed. Many owners, unfortunately, are unprepared for such financial eventualities. In truth; this is a breed whose size necessitates more exercise, nutrition, fencing, time, worry, patience, and potential medical bills than almost all other large and small breeds.
