Welcome to Top10Archive! We’ve already ran by the list of the smallest dog breeds, so why not going over a list of their over-sized companions?
From the famous face of the French Mastiff, to the Goliath sized Great Dane, here is our list for the top 10 largest dog breeds still alive today.
10. Dogue de Bordeaux To start the list off we present you the Dogue de Bordeaux, commonly known as the French Mastiff. They are prized for their rich, autumn coat, and loving demeanor.
This breed of dog is friendly, lovable, and massive; reaching heights around feet or just shy of 1 meter and plumping itself up to 100 pounds or about 45 kilograms.
This amazingly passive dog got its start of fame after one co-starred with Tom Hanks in the movie, Turner and Hooch back in 1989, and has been a rapidly growing breed of choice ever since.
The Dogue de Bordeaux would become recognized by the AKC in 2008. 9. Scottish Deerhound The “royal dog of Scotland”, a noble, dignified dog, bred to assist in hunting and bringing down the Scottish roe deer.
Considering what it was bred for, it would have to be relatively large, growing to heights or feet or about 1 meter, with the heftier sized Deerhounds weighing in around 110 pounds or about 50 kilograms.
Affectionate and gentle with people, the wiry coated dog makes a wonderful pet, usually being non-aggressive to all people, children and strangers alike.
