Here's one who hogs the couch! It's a game called "find the human".

This is probably my favorite picture of giant dogs.

A wolf-hybrid.

Hybrid’s personalities can range from complete dog-like to complete wolf-lime, so you have to choose carefully.

Great pictures, thanks.

I have a 18 pound Jack Russel Terrier who thinks she is HUGE and she acts like it!

I had a lhaso apso, who was about 25% larger than the average lhaso apso. She had an aggressive personality, attempting to pick fights with much larger dogs. However, if any dog attempted to get aggressive in return, she always showed just how chicken she was.

I have a 4lb silky (Luci Belle) who has no idea how small she is. She barks at my sons 125lb American bulldog like she's going to attack. I have to hold her back. She doesn't realize he could eat her in one bite.

I like this dog, because unlike the other giant dogs, he’s not one bit lanky.

He’s all meat.

We have a seven-month-old puppy who’s pushing 80 pounds...a shelter dog, allegedly a mix of Great Pyrenees, German Shepherd, and Walker Coonhound. He’s got Pyrenees size, Shepherd coat, and Coonhound coloring...right now he basically looks like a giant somewhat shaggy prehistoric dinosaur-huntin’ dawg. And he’s nowhere near full-grown yet, God help us!

My neighbor has a Pom with a huge case of “short dog syndrome”. Inside most of the time.

He also has 4 REALLY big outside dogs. Occasionally Pockets (the pom) goes outside and runs with the big guys. It never fails to crack me up when I see them together. There is no doubt that Pockets thinks he is the size of the others and struts along with them.

I find it interesting that the big guys kind of surround him...like they are protecting him.

I had a wolf hybrid “own” me for 16 years. He was big...but not nearly that big!

(Not that I play favorites with any of my pets, but he was definitely one of my favs.)

Some of those photos of the Great Danes are scary.

We got a rescue dog as a pup, and the lady said it was probably black lab and some smaller shepard dog. We got it home, and the neighbor (dog expert) said “Oh - part Great Dane!” My wife and I didn’t believe her. Until we research it. And in a few days had the first vet visit.

I’m sure glad his size runs more like a lab (85 lbs) than a Great Dane. Those dogs are HUGE!! (And I think he eats a lot now!).

#8 about escaping the rat thing on the floor reminded me of when we got a puppy as a companion for our older dog. He tolerated a lot from her and then would jump on the furniture to get away.
She would sit and bark at him to get him to play.

My friend has an Irish Wolfhound similar to the dog in #11.

He’s HUGE (near 200 lbs), but he thinks he’s a LAPDOG! He’ll put his butt on the couch, and with his front paws on the floor his head is nearly as tall as I am sitting there.

Photo 11 looks like my big boy, Baxter. He’s a German Shepard terrior something mix (from a shelter). He doesn’t like other dogs or cats; is incredibly protective of our family and thinks he is a lapdog. The funny thing is he bumps into things w/his rear end all the time. He doesn’t sense his body is back there.

Mutts (no matter their size) are the best :)

My little JRT, Cookie, will start a fight with a bigger dog and not stop. I have had to take her to the vet several times.

#11 is an Irish Wolfhound, tallest breed, or at worst a Scottish Deerhound. But he just looks too buff for a SD.

“A wolf hybrid”.

We, (my daughter,) has a wolf-Golden hybrid. Fantastic animal, excellent hunter, scares the Sh!t out of people when she flips into "wolf mode." The animal is a very intellegent sweet heart that takes home/family protection very seriously.

I've had 2 very large Golden Retrievers. Both were house dogs, and my house has a lot of antique furniture, so space is at premium. Neither dog EVER knocked over anything. They were amazingly graceful while weaving between furniture legs, etc. The only thing I had to watch for was the tail An excited Golden can sweep your coffee right off the coffee table with their tail.

BIL had a pit-lab that was like that. It was like having someone taking a ball bat to your shins when he started wagging...

Wonderful pictures! We always adopt adult shelter dogs so we get no “size” surprises.

Our setter-mix, Aubrey (42 pounds) was rescued with several pups, and one of her pups was returned to the rescue group after a couple of years when he grew up to be an 80+ pound lab/setter mix! Beautiful, friendly dog, just more dog then the owners could handle. Luckily, he was re-homed pretty quickly.

When a Golden wags like that, it’s like being slapped in the shins with a broom!
