    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.

    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. :(
