5) The Largest Irish Wolfhound:
This week’s featured largest dog is an Irish Wolfhound again – just like last week. Again, I have a feeling that this photo is real and the photographer picked a very good angle, which makes the dogs look larger. The dogs are in front of the camera while the little old lady sits on the couch in the background as a comparison.

4) The Largest Irish Wolfhound:
This week our featured Largest Dog in the world is an Irish Wolfhound. Guess what?! I am sure this photo is not fake and shows the actual size of the dog. Although, I must admit that the photographer did a very good job to make it look bigger than it is. There is one thing we cannot be sure though! Is it really the largest dog in the world??? Hard to tell… probably not but it does look huge!

Largest Irish Wolfhound in the World

Many people falsely believe that the largest breed in the world is the Great Dane (height: 30-34 inches or 76-86 cm). While, Great Danes are called the King of All Dog Breeds they are not as tall as the Irish Wolfhounds (height: 28-35 inches or 71-90 cm). The two breeds are very similar in size but in average, Irish Wolfhounds are larger.

Learn More about Military Dogs


Sandor Fagyal

Military dogs are dogs that are used to complement the various tasks that are needed to carry out a military operations. To some, this may seem to be contrary to humanitarian principles. But I look at it like this – This is how dogs first evolved – as a companion in hunting, and in fact, gun dogs like the Hungarian Vizsla are in use by even non military personnel.

Military Dog Training

 

 

All of a dog’s functions that are superior to those of a human, are used to round off an operation that would otherwise lack their fine capabilities. So let’s proceed by looking at a dog’s superior functions:

Smell and Hearing

The dog’s superior sense of smell, makes them very useful when used as Detection Dogs. These dogs are utilized to sniff out very small traces of the substance to be detected. They can include illegal narcotics, explosives, and even humans, as search dogs.

Breeds that are suited for this purpose are the Bloodhound, Labrador Retrievers, Rottweilers, and the St. Bernard, among others.

Speed and Aggressiveness

I know from experience that even a seasoned dog handler feels a chill up his spine when he sees a real threatening snarl from a German Shepherd. These dogs known as K9 (like ‘canine’) dogs are used to hunt down suspects, or prevent them from escaping. Apart from the German Shepherd, commonly used dogs also include the Doberman, and the American Pit Bull Terriers.

Easy to Train and Loyal

Dogs such as Attack Dogs can be specifically trained to chase and incapacitate (But not necessarily kill) targets. Dogs like the Irish Wolfhound are used for this purpose.

The loyalty of all the breeds are beyond question and all make excellent watchdogs, yet some breeds like the Bullmastiff are admirable guard dogs whose job doesn’t end with merely scaring away the intruder, but actively stopping them, and restraining them. Once again, the desired result can be easily achieved with training.

Euro Puppy Doesn’t Have to Go Far, to Get to the Far-East!

Healthy and Happy Puppies Find Loving Homes in the Far-East!

While successfully integrating itself into the Middle-Eastern minds, the Far-East has also proved to be a market with wonderful potentials for Euro Puppy. With many success stories in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, China (Hong Kong) and Japan, Euro Puppy can now safely say, that they are the top provider of the highest quality European puppies from the best European breeders! A satisfied customer saw the arrival of his much-awaited French Bulldog in Singapore. Although regulations made it impossible for him to immediately take his puppy home, as one month quarantine was compulsory, the little French Bulldog found a loving home with his Singaporean family after 30 days. Euro Puppy has a loyal customer in Hong Kong as well, who has come back not once, not twice, but four times to Euro Puppy, to expand her “collection” Tibetan Mastiffs! She is often stopped by locals, and she is told that her dogs are some of the best Tibetan Mastiffs in Hong Kong! The satisfied owner remarks: “I am very proud to say that my four Tibetan Mastiffs are the top of their breed, here in Hong Kong. Euro Puppy only gives the Best. I am lucky to have found Euro Puppy and I am happy to have this wonderful breed!” Her dogs are non-aggressive as well, while the ones born in China seem to be. Euro Puppy’s top European breeders have taken the aggression out of this mammoth-sized breed to make them loving family members and astute guard-dogs as well. Another Euro Puppy puppy to have arrived to Hong Kong is the rather rare and large Hungarian Komondor breed that goes by the name of “White Rock”. He remains one of the few if not the only one of his kind in the whole of Hong Kong!

The Far East

 

Recently two Irish Wolfhounds arrived to their Japanese home as well. After some red-tape, the Japanese Government finally approved the importation of these goliath dogs that originate from Ireland. Japan has very strict regulations about canines, due to their fear of rabies. But these muscular and massive dogs have finally arrived to their destination after waiting three months for the “go-ahead” to come from Japan! One must definitely also mention the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that found a very loving home in Thailand. This little dog found fame overnight! Upon his arrival, he became the cover of the best-selling pet magazine in Thailand! “Anton” is the name he answers to and he has not only appeared in shows but he has won numerous titles as well. Apart from this little guy, other large-bodied breeds like the Neapolitan Mastiff have also found wonderful new homes on numerous occasions in Thailand and the rest of the Far-East. The fact that the beautiful, healthy puppies that customers find through Euro Puppy is only further evidence that the puppies for sale do indeed come from not only the best stock, but they are specially cared for as well by the top breeders of Europe. The shipping of all the puppies to the Far–East occurs via strict and hygienic conditions! Despite the lengthy paperwork, that often accompanies the puppies to the Far-East, Euro Puppy is always excited to know that the top quality puppies from Euro Puppy do indeed put a smile on faces around the globe…and this time in the Far- East as well!

Rudolph Valentino and his Irish Wolfhound


Sandor Fagyal

Rudolph Valentino known as the “Latin Lover” at one time was one of the most famous stars in the world. He projected an image of extreme femininity and this both drove women wild, as well as men who thought he was promoting femininity in men!

But for a man who was feminine, he sure had a huge dog. He had Irish Wolfhound called Centaur Pendragon. Irish Wolfhounds are sight dogs that were used in the past for Wolf hunting. Thus the name. They are the tallest dog breed in the world.

However paradoxically, they are an extremely gentle breed. Though one can forgive an intruder for being afraid of their size, they are apt to welcome anyone into their home with open paws as a friend! This gentle nature makes them ideal for children and for the family, though they’re not recommended for those who have no prior experience with dogs.

Irish Wolfhound

At one point in time, only royalty could have the privilege of owning an Irish Wolfhound, and this made them almost extinct at a certain point in time. However, they have been rebred and are known as “Gentle Giants.
