Linden Acres Wolfhounds

Our family lives on a hobby farm in southern Minnesota and breeds irish wolfhounds purely for family pets.  Our two main criteria for breeding are health and temperament.  As our dogs are not fancy show dogs, we breed our puppies to be friendly & healthy family pets.  We have 5 dogs total (4 wolfies and 1 terrier) so they all get plenty of attention.  Our dogs are a part of our family and so are the puppies.  Puppies are born and raised in our kitchen and are well socialized with our 4 children, their many friends and many other animals. 

My husband is a veterinarian and the puppies are kept current on their shots and worming.  We have done OFA testing for hips, elbows & heart on our adult dogs.  We also liver shunt test our puppies.  All puppies leave with a 2 year health guarantee, a bag of food, an irish wolfhound book, a puppy training book, and a towel which smells like us in case of homesickness. We also discuss care, feeding and veterinary care for wolfhounds as it is much different than for other dog breeds.  We are always available to answer questions, or discuss issues, either by phone or by email, as we feel we are responsible for the puppies we produce from the day they are born until their death.  We are always willing to take a puppy/dog back at any time during its' life if you find yourself unable to care for it properly.

We have made the decision to slowly phase out of breeding wolfhounds and will not be replacing any of our breeding stock as they retire. 

Lucita should have a litter sometime in the spring of 2018.  Please email to be added to the waiting list.
