Tallest Dog Breed — Irish Wolfhound

It’s hard to ignore the towering 30- to 35-inch-tall Irish Wolfhound — his giant size gives him quite a commanding appearance. Unfortunately, because the breed is so big, its lifespan is heartbreakingly short. The average life of the Irish Wolfhound is only 6 to 8 years.
