| Irish Wolfhounds may have been used in arena fighting in the Roman Empire and were said to have been able to take out lions, wolves, wild boar, and armored cavalry! An Irish Wolfhound can reach seven feet in height standing on its hind legs and can weigh as much as 180 pounds, about the size of a small pony! Irish Wolfhounds may date back earlier than the first century B.C. The Irish Wolfhound may have contributed to the extinction of the wolf and wild boar in Ireland.
