"Jeffrey" the Irish Wolfhound is a great example of "Giant" wolfhounds and so gentle.
The growling had to be dubbed in I'm sure. If you know the breed, you will "LOVE" the movie! The story plot rates as OK with me and my family! The acting is better than we could do. Our wolfhound isn't as big but could make a GREAT Comedy! We love all the players! Too bad there are no copies of this movie around. We "Irish wolfhound" owners would love to watch it again and again.
