The Irish Wolfhoundexternal link is the tallest breed of dog. It's hard to imagine this extremely gentle animal being used in war, but war is the original use for which they were bred.

The very large Irish wolfhound, despite its size, is a friendly and gentle dog. Here was a demonstration the it gets along well with children.

Irish wolfhound inspected an interloper. The parade of the Irish wolfhounds is always a favorite. These huge, gentle dogs are a very old breed. Some suggest it may have been brought to Ireland as early as 3500 BCE.

The Irish Wolfhound orginated in Ireland and is included in almost all St. Patrick Day parades because it is a truely Irish dog.
