Irish Wolfhound

The Irish Wolfhound is the largest breed of the group of greyhounds chasing movable prey, as well as the tallest dog in the world. One of the first references to these animals dates back to the year 391 AD, when the Roman consul Aurelius wrote about the “great surprise and delight” experienced by the inhabitants of Rome and the aristocracy, when they saw the seven wolfhounds brought by the legionnaires from the campaign.

German Shepherd

Traditionally, it is believed that the German shepherd breed appeared in 1899. In fact, this is only a clearly defined reference point, although similar dogs existed before. Moreover, a professional military man named Max von Stefanitz, who is credited with this merit, simply bought his first pet at the exhibition. Subsequently, he standardized the breed and succeeded in creating a successful breeding program.

Moreover, the first individual was a cross between a wolf and a dog, and von Stefanitz was crossing his male, bought at the show, named Hector Linsrain with the best local shepherd dogs. A little later, he renamed the purchased dog, giving him the nickname Horand von Grafet. Stefanitz traveled throughout Germany in search of the best dogs, examining in detail their character and appearance. Continue reading
