The Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club was formed in 1974.

The beginnings of Irish Wolfhounds can be traced back as early as 273B.C. through ancient woodcuts and writings. Ownership of these great hounds was restricted. They were sent as greatly coveted gifts to emperors, kings, nobility and poets.

Hunting and fighting filled the life of the early Irish, and master and hound alike excelled in both. Of all the animals cherished in Ireland, only the Irish Wolfhound appears as a symbol throughout the land – on every jar of Tullamore Dew Whiskey, on every piece of Belleek porcelain, sixpence coins and even postage stamps feature the Irish Wolfhound. Come by and see these beautiful animals.
