either a very smart Irish Wolfhound or a very mischievous one

Irish Wolfhound cross

His owner said that he was an Irish Wolfhound cross, that’s why he is smaller than ‘normal’. She didn’t know what kind of cross.

Look at the eyes. Is this a mischievous dog or is this a very smart dog that understand? I don’t know, but I like the look.

The ancestor of the Irish Wolfhound is a very old breed that the Irish used to fight the Romans when the Romans tried to invade Ireland. They would first launch the Wolfhounds and then attack the Romans. The Irish Wolfhounds instilled fear in the Roman legions and Rome had to retreat to England. It took another 150 years for the Germanic Goth tribes to do the same to the Roman legions.

PS: I forgot to ask for his name.
