Irish Wolfhounds are pretty rare. Not so rare as Irish wolves of course but not only are they huge they have a reputation as one of the "heartbreak" breeds i.e. big dogs with short lifespans.

I had an idiot neighbor in the 80s who had a Rottweiler. He kept it on a chain because it could almost step over the 4 foot high chain link fence. It managed to get over the fence once even with its' chain. It only barked with incredible ferocity and lunged at people because it was lonely and wanted you to come play. It was perfectly friendly once it got loose.

A Rottweiler may have been rare in the 70s but not the 80s. In the 70s you might have seen a Doberman in the same niche (which I fear might be "dog for idiots").
