Irish Heritage:IRISH WOLFHOUND

What’s the tallest dog breed? 

The Irish Wolfhound!

This largest and tallest galloping hound combines power and swiftness with keen eyesight.  Easy-going and quiet, these dogs create a very strong bond with their human families.  Though not normally aggressive around other domestic dogs, they are natural hunters and may course another dog.   This is not a fighting or territorial behavior.

They are very affectionate to children and seem to know they need to be gentle, despite their great size.  They also seem to be able to sense ill will or danger towards their human family which makes them excellent guardians, but not necessarily good guard dogs.

Tale a look at this wonderful Animal Discovery Channel video and you’ll see how magnificent these dogs really are!

We’re celebrating Irish Heritage this week, but we celebrate our pet friends every day!  Be sure to share your photos of your pets enjoying Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages!
