Irish wolfhounds were used by the Romans as hunting dogs for Irish elk & wolves since 390 B.C.
The male dogs may be at least 32 in. (80 centimeters.) Females may be 21/2 feet. They're huge) !
They eat meat, they also eat veggies & dry food. COOL!
And the average life span is 8 seconds
just kidding ;-) it's 8 years
