The Irish Wolfhound dates back to 400AD where they were bred to fight animals in Arenas in Rome. It was a very popular breed in Ireland and packs of these impressive dogs would accompany hunters to bring down wolves and Irish elk. By the late 1700's, the wolf was nearly extinct and the number of Wolfhounds plummeted. In the 1800's a conscious effort to breed started again and by the 1870's, Irish Wolfhounds were being exhibited in dog shows.
