So why is it totally worth the extra paper towels you have to buy for your jumbo-sized canine? The biggest dog breeds tend to be gentle, calm, and stable (as in, your toddler niece is pulling on your massive dog’s tail and he doesn’t even notice). They tend to be very loyal and affectionate in their own quiet way. They are surprisingly agile and make great exercise companions, and many of them are very mellow and actually can live in small spaces without it feeling cramped.

And ran through the tallest grass

Although imposing, the biggest dog breeds also tend to be mildly tempered and make excellent family pets. This list details some of the biggest of the big dogs, but “big” is relative; some breeds are stout and heavy while others are tall and lean.Though they aren't the heaviest dogs, reaching around 100-120 pounds, they are among the tallest. The average Great Dane stands around 28-30 inches tall but often they can be taller. The world record holder for tallest dog was a Great Dane named Zeus who stood an astounding 44 inches tall. However, these big dogs trade longevity for their size, and live only to be between 6 to 8 years old. at just 5 years old."If you plan to jump off the porch to be with the big dogs, you'd better learn how to run in the tall grass." This is a fun expression that canimply a variety of different meanings but it has a specific meaning for any person seeking greater responsibility and the desire to climb the "corporate ladder". The view from an employee's perspective may paint a picture that being a "manager" is a glamorous and powerful existence. Sure, managers are given more information, are involved in more decisions, and seem to have most everything under control.

The Peter Pan Principal hasa gravitational pull in the leadership realm.

They look even bigger because of their thick double coat, which keeps them warm even in icy water. is probably the rarest dog on our list of tall dogs! This Turkish breed was created to guard flocks of sheep from predators. Because these uninvited guests came in the form of wolves and even bears, the Anatolian Shepherd had to be big! These dogs measure 28-30 inches at the withers and weigh in between 100-150 lbs. Like many of the herding breeds, the Anatolian is quite independent. Combined with its build, this trait makes it a poor choice for a novice dog owner. They have a tendency to become very protective.It's common knowledge that English Mastiffs are some of the biggest dogs around, so why is this breed at #6? Despite the fact that many individual English Mastiffs get to be much larger than the breed average, the fact is the breed average puts males around 30 inches tall and about 180 lbs. This puts them in the same range as the Tibetan Mastiff and the Cao dos Mourey (which I didn't include on this list because it's a relatively unknown and recently-developed breed). So, while your mastiff may very well be larger than the breeds at #1 through #5 on this list, on average, there are at least five breeds that are larger than mastiffs. (Can you guess what they are?)
