To own one of these magnificent hounds should be looked on as
a privilege and a pleasure, not a right. This privilege carries
heavy responsibilities. The Irish Wolfhound is a giant breed of
dog and as such needs dedication and a clear commitment to looking
after them. You must think long and hard before you make the decision
to include one in your family. You are committing yourself to years
of living with a Wolfhound, you must remember that Wolfhounds grow
amazingly quickly and need special care as they are growing. They
don't stay that cute, gangling puppy you just picked up from your
breeder. They go through just as many changes as a child, only far
||You must take into account the cost
of feeding and veterinary expenses if he should ever get sick, whether
your home is fenced and also the amount of exercise he will need each
day. A Wolfhound is just not the sort of dog you can tie up, this
as far as we are concerned, is just not an option.
When our puppies go to their new families we like to keep in touch
so that if at any time you have questions we will be able to help.
We like to be able to follow their lives, whether they go to a pet
home or one from where they will be shown.
We try our very best to find good homes for our puppies, but no one
can see into the future and if at any time you find that you can no
longer give your family member the home he or she deserves, there
will always be a loving home back at Owai.
