was our first Irish wolfhound and we can say without a doubt that
he is responsible for our great love of the breed. He is a very
big boy at 37+ inches at the shoulder. His ideal weight is about
175 lbs. An unfortunate accident as a puppy prevented him from
being shown in the conformation ring but he was ranked the #6
Irish wolfhound in Canada for lure coursing in 2003.
Clifford is happiest when he's either "on the lure"

outgoing personality and loves nothing more than to be the center
of attention. Clifford has children and grandchildren who have
done very well in the conformation ring and have produced both
US and Canadian champions. We are currently showing his granddaughter,
