    Wolfhounds are much bigger boned, weight considerably more, and have longer hair. I have 2 wolfhounds (age 6 and 7 and still going strong by the way…longevity has everything to do with breeding). They were bred to hunt larger game than the deerhound. Personality wise, the deerhound is a little more aloof where the wolfhound loves people and will go out of their way to get your attention.

    Deer hounds are a little smaller, not as much coat and have a much finer head than a wolfhound.

    The main one for me is the Irish Wolfhound, owing to their size, has a VERY short lifespan. You're looking at about 10-12 years for the Deerhound and 6-7 if you're lucky for the Wolfie. Very sad as they're amazing dogs. :(
