Grow Up

The Irish Wolfhound grows at an incredible rate.  The newborn pup weighs about 1 to 1-1/2 pounds. By the time it is ready to go to its new home at around 12-13 weeks of age, it can weigh around 40 to 50 pounds.

The growing puppy once he is in his new home:

Four and a half months old 
At 4 1/2 months the puppy can still fit into your favorite chair.

Six months old
At 6 months it takes a couch for the two of you to cuddle.

Ten and a half months old
At 10 1/2 months he begins to look more like a real wolfhound.
