USA Breeders:




Mactire Irish Wolfhounds grew out of our desire to have a pack of Irish Wolfhounds of our own.

We started by rescuing a couple crossbreed dogs with Irish Wolfhound traits. Then we finally bit the bullet and bought the son of a champion, who was born with only one testicle, so the breeder let him for use a pet. Rocky was the love of our life but his life was cut short by gastric torsion. That is when we really started looking into the health ailments specific to giant breeds.


After much searching and researching bloodlines we purchased a male Irish Wolfhound with clean bloodlines. Size wise, Rupert is on the lower range of the AKC scale for males. He is 36” at the withers but has a very thin frame and often only weighs around 130 pounds. Wanting to produce offspring that are right in the middle of the AKC size range we started looking for a female, with clean bloodlines but from a family that produces dogs on the top end of the AKC size range. That is when we found Jadis Lady Mactire. Her father is 40’ at the withers and weighs 190 pounds. By mating these two bloodlines we reduce the chances of producing dogs with genetic illnesses (since neither line has dogs with those illnesses) and we had a chance to produce dogs that are prime examples of the breed.


We have produced some amazing dogs from the first two litters. We kept Mo Chroi’ (My Heart in Irish Gaelic) because she is a great example of the breed and we couldn’t resist the perfect white heart shape on her chest. Another one of our dogs is featured on  a television show.
