Irish Wolfhounds And Some of their Funniest Photos Online




  • Irish Wolfhounds are large dogs of majestic heritage.
  • Though they almost disappeared in the 1800s, Captain George A. Graham helped revived them in the early 19th century.
  • Now, they are back online and are becoming popular as large lovable goofballs.

Dogs are believed to be man’s best friend. Not only that, these days, the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine is looking at the possibility of using dogs as an assistant in detecting COVID-19 in asymptomatic carriers in the US.

Whether they can help in sniffing COVID-19 carriers or not is still being researched, but the fact that they are sweet, affectionate, and sometimes hilarious companions remain.


In any case, one of the most popular dog breeds, the Irish Wolfhound, is fast becoming popular. Irish Wolfhound is a large breed of dogs with majestic heritage, which makes them seem like the stuff of legends, but these pet owners are posting photos that make them seem like large, loveable goofballs you’d wish you have one at home as well.

#1: This 8-month-old Irish Wolfhound in the photo is named Murphy.

According to his human owner, he’s way bigger and heavier now at 4. Makes you wonder how much he’s grown in the past 3 years.

#2: A day in life, never to be forgotten, says a netizen.
#3: If the sheer number of dogs doesn’t tug at your heartstrings, maybe those big eyes will!
#4: Sitting on grandma’s lap. This Irish Wolfhound sure doesn’t care about how big or heavy he is.
#5: “This is how you do it,” says that second dog who apparently knows how to be a photobomber.
#6: David and Goliath? According to the owner, they’re names are Big Ron and Big Ern.

#7: Lincoln can’t go on the couch, so Navy joined him on the floor. Isn’t it adorable?
#8: Look at that lap dog! The owner of these pets sure have it easy.
#9: Matching Christmas PJs, anyone?
#10: The owner calls them Beauty and the Beast. Do you agree?

Believe it or not, this highly regarded breed almost disappeared in 1800, when they were still primarily used for hunting. But with the help of Captain George Augustus Graham, the Irish Wolfhounds were crossed with Scottish Deerhounds and revived for canine fancy.
