The Irish Wolfhound is a breed of dog originating from Ireland and domesticated for hunting purposes. The name Irish Wolfhound originated from the purpose of domestication (borzoi) rather than appearance. In addition, the Irish Wolfhound is also the tallest dog in the world. Soon, the Irish Wolfhound set another Guinness World Record. Today I will share with you an article about the giant Irish Wolfhound with a tail length of 76.8 cm, setting a Guinness World Record. Let’s take a look.
Now an Irish wolfhound has also created a new Guinness World Record, because it has become the longest tailed star in the world.
This Irish wolfhound is named Keon and has a tail length of 30.2 inches (76.8 cm), which is 1.7 inches (4.5 cm) longer than the previous record holder.
Keon’s owner called it “a very beautiful dog” and a “gentle behemoth”. But it seems to be more keen on stealing slices of toast from the table.
The Irish Wolfhound is a very old breed, perhaps from the 1st century BC or earlier. The ancient Celts used them as war dogs and called them Cú Faoil. The Irish continued to raise them for this purpose, to defend their homes and protect their livestock.
