'Walela' is the Cherokee word for hummingbird, the bird of joy. We couldn't think of a better name for our little farm. We are a small hobby breeder of Irish wolfhounds located just outside the metro area of Atlanta, Georgia. Our goal is to breed for health, longevity, conformation and temperament. Please take a moment to look through our site and if you are interested in more information or bringing a wolfhound into your family, contact us. We are in the process of updating and changing our website. Please bear with us as we create a site that provides you with information about us and about Irish wolfhounds as a whole. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

From “The Icelandic Saga of Nial”

“I will give thee a dog which I got in Ireland. He is huge of limb, and for a follower equal to an able man. Moreover, he hath a man’s wit and will bark at thine enemies but never at thy friends. And he will see by each man’s face whether he be ill or well disposed to thee. And he will lay down his life for thee.”
