Our puppies are very calm and gentle like their parents. We have both parents on site and your more than welcome to come out and see our puppies on our ranch. We raise our Irish Wolfhound puppies around small babies, young children and other dogs (small and large) as well as our other animals which include cats, chickens, peacocks, cows and horses. Our dogs spend their days lounging in the shade or running through the fields. These are ranch dogs not pampered show dogs.
We’ve been breeding top of the line dogs and horses for over 30 years.
Our dogs are our pets and part of our family. We do not believe in dogs living in kennels. Our Irish Wolfhounds are free to romp and play on our property as hounds are meant to do and they’re very well-behaved and loving dogs. They’re also truly amazing and patient with children. Irish Wolfhounds are great human companions and a beautiful and magical creature.
We highly recommend that you research Irish Wolfhounds to see if this is going to be the right breed for you and your family before considering adopting.

“I will give thee a dog which I got in Ireland. He is huge of limb, and for a follower equal to an able man. Moreover, he hath a man’s wit and will bark at thine enemies but never at thy friends. And he will see by each man’s face whether he be ill or well disposed to thee. And he will lay down his life for thee.” (from “The Icelandic Saga of Nial”)
Being the tallest and largest of all dogs, Irish Wolfhounds are known as the “gentle giants” of the canine world. The breed slogan, “Gentle when stroked, fierce when provoked” which also appears with a hound on the coat of arms of early Irish kings as a revered symbol of Ireland, basically sums up the finest defining qualities of this unique breed.
