Today my dad and me decided to look up the biggest dog breeds.
We saw HUMONGOUS dog pictures! He tells me some of them aren’t real… Which ones aren’t real? Can you tell?
According to wiki.Answers: People seem to forget that ‘biggest’ does not mean tallest. Biggest usually has to do with volume, mass, girth.
The “tallest” dog by foot-to-shoulder height is the Irish Wolfhound:
(Here’s a picture of me with an Irish Wolfhound… taken when my family and I went to Ireland last summer… His name is Arthur! He lives in the old castle that was turned into a hotel. Arthur, king of the castle, get it?)
but the BIGGEST dog (by way of girth, weight, strength, and general size) is the English Mastiff.
Not only the breed, but the largest recorded dog in general (which weighs over three hundred and fifty pounds, and can pull over fifteen hundred).
So here are some more pictures of GIANT dogs… see if you can guess if these are real or Photoshopped.
