What is an IW, you ask? An IW is an Irish Wolfhound. For those of you not familiar with the breed, they are kind, gentle, sweet-tempered, and pretty much the worst guard dog known to man. They are a member of the site–hounds with a course or rough coat giving the dog that “old man” look about the eyes. They’re not the heaviest breed but they are the tallest averaging around 33 – 36 inches at the withers or shoulders.
I’m so excited. I hope this breeder calls me back so that I can go meet them sometime in the near future so cross your fingers and say a prayer for me, ‘kay?
Here are a couple of photos of the breed; are they GORGEOUS or what??
