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.

In Ireland, these dogs were highly appreciated for their fighting qualities, fearlessness and tremendous strength. In battle, an Irish wolfhound was used to knock a horseman off a horse, and, often on the ground, this same horseman found himself with a horse. They hunted big game, Irish elk, wolf and bear.

Irish law in the Middle Ages allowed only an royal wolf and noblemen to have an Irish wolfhound. Continue reading

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.

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

Great Dane of Argentina

The history of the appearance of a dog of the breed Argentine Great Dane is always associated with a man named Antonio Nores Martinez. It was he who first, at the beginning of the 20th century (1920s), began to select strong, large dogs with a fighting character by selection method.

Martinez’s dream was to create a breed that could represent his native country on the world stage. After 100 years, we can say with confidence what he did. In fact, the breed Argentine Great Dane, or, as it is also called, the Argentine Mastiff, is a descendant of the now extinct Cordoba dog.

When Martinez was just starting his work, he had to face innate aggression, and despite all his efforts, he failed to eliminate or even significantly reduce this quality. The changes occurred, but they were not enough to change the nature of the breed, because of which the breed of the Argentine Great Dog was Continue reading
