Dog lovers should already know by now that a dog will love you regardless of how you look, which is precisely how most people should see things the other way around. We say this because although big dogs can be quite intimidating, most of them are just as silly and affectionate as smaller dogs. Mark Twain once said that it’s not about the size of the dog in a fight but about the size of the fight in a dog, which is a great way of looking at dogs of all breeds and sizes.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to how well-trained the dogs are, regardless of how big they are. Even so, let us find out what are the ten biggest dog breeds in the world and how large they can actually grow.
Although they appear very large at first sight, we should point out that Caucasian Shepherd dogs aren’t all that heavy. In fact, they can weight a maximum of 99 lbs (45 kg) despite being able to grow up to 28 inches (70 cm) tall. Still, Caucasian Shepherds are very obedient by nature, although they are somewhat aggressive and not very bright. Then again, they have been traditionally bred to fend off predators, so it kind of makes sense.
