8 Largest Dog Breeds In The World

There are small dogs, there are medium dogs and large dogs. But there are several breeds of dogs in the world that are rightfully considered the largest in the world. We present them to you😉.

#1 Dogue de Bordeaux

The Dogue de Bordeaux goes by several other names, including the Bordeaux mastiff, French mastiff and Bordeauxdog. But this breed, by any other name, still stands as massive. Though other breeds, from the poodle and French bulldog to the Great Pyrenees and Basset hound may be more famous breeds of French origin, the Dogue de Bordeaux is one of the most ancient breeds of France.


The Dogue de Bordeaux stands between 23-27 inches tall and weighs between 125-150 pounds. But though it is fairly average as far as mastiff breeds go, it does have one thing that sets it apart: It is reported to have the largest head of any canine in relation to body size.

#3 Caucasian Shepherd Dogs

The height and weight of the Caucasian Shepherd Dogs is quite large, and because of the very thick and lush coat, these dogs sometimes seem really huge.


The average growth of males varies from 70–77 cm, the average weight is 50–60 kg, the females are slightly smaller, their growth is approximately 65–70 cm, and their weight is 45–50 kg. However, there are among these shepherd dogs and very large dogs. So, there are reports of the largest wolfhounds weighing more than 100 kg.

#5 Saint Bernard

The Saint Bernard of brandy-toting fame is a breed originally created in the Swiss Alps and northern Italy as a rescue dog. The monks of the Saint Bernard Hospice are credited with training dogs for rescue and for playing a role in developing the breed we know today. Dogs can stand between 25-30 inches tall and weigh anywhere from 140 to 180 pounds.


Though they were originally used as rescue dogs to find and save travelers, today's Saint Bernards are mostly family dogs. They are famous for being gentle, loving, friendly and great with children. They are also apparently great with kittens, too
