There are many breeds of dogs in the world, some people like small dogs, some people like giant dogs, and today I want to introduce a kind of dog that looks a bit "scary" because of its huge size Dog - irish wolfhound. It originated in Ireland, and because of its huge size, it was once considered the real giant dog in the world.
Adult Irish wolfhound bodyMajestic Vigorous: the shoulder height of male dogs is not less than 81.28 cm, and the shoulder height of female dogs is not less than 76.2 cm; the weight of male dogs is not less than 54.43 kg, and the weight of female dogs is not less than 47.63 kg. The ratio of their length to height is coordinated, but because their height and weight can be comparable to an ordinary person, it is really easy to feel scary when they look at them.
