20 Photos Of Wolfhounds Revealing How Sweet They Are In Spite Of Their Size

It’s easy to distinguish a wolfhound by its most apparent descriptive feature – height. Irish wolfhounds are believed to date back to 391 AD and were mainly used for hunting. Gaels called them Cú Faoil meaning hound or wolf. These dogs’ height can reach 76-81 cm weighing up to 70 kg.

But the height is not the only thing that makes these dogs so unique. They come with variations of colors from the most common white, black, brindle, fawn, creamy to even red and blue.
Their size might be a little intimidating but believe me, wolfhounds are the friendliest and sweet-tempered dogs.

Owners describe them as very patient, affectionate, loyal, and dignified dogs that won’t ever harm anybody. Need proof? That’s why we prepared this post with the sweetest hounds that will show how lovable and playful they are, and even funny from time to time.
