    Question Do You Like Really BIG Dogs?

    My neighbors puppy dog that "weighs in" at about a mere 174 pounds. And he is not fat.
    His doggone head is gigantic.
    (Size Reference) My hand is slightly larger than average.
    He looks extra mean because his one ear is completely missing (see pic).
    That is not his ear on that one side (bottom right).
    That is a hole where his ear used to be and then his neck.
    It got bit off when he was a younger dog.
    I don't think any other dogs would have too much luck biting his other ear off these days.

    Thats one neat dog. I'm not so sure he would be right for my home but a neat dog indeed.

    I thought GSD poo was big and not so fun to clean up. You got to find out what their dog food bill is.

    I LOVE big dogs. If I could afford to feed another one, I'd pick up a
    Giant Maso. By age 2 they're usually running around 32" tall and run usually between 190-220lbs. They look a lot like an English Mastiff, but much wider at the shoulders and more muscular. Despite the size, every one I've ran into has been a great family type of dog, as in gentle with children and they seem to know their place. The folks that breed them are right here in VA.

    To give you an idea...Check out the attached jpg...this is a maso at 10 MONTHS old

    The original can be found on www.massivedogz.com

    I had a Presa Canario that was 120 pounds at 9 months. Died in a car accident, but the breed standard is about 170 pounds. His daddy was 230 and his mom was 190. Great dog. Made a big mess. He at 6 cups of food and two raw eggs for breakfast, and 4 cups of food and a raw egg for dinner. He was everything you could want a dog to be (except small).

    OMG! Gorgeous dogs on that site...... But you do need a farm to have them.

    I like them big but, the Mrs. can't tolerate the slobber.
    I originally wanted a Swiss Mountain Dog but, as already stated you'all know who wears the pants in my family.

    Aside from Bumper she is the only one that can boss me around.

    Unfortunately she's not mine. I've met her before, but not mine. Eventually I will get one. Right now I can only safely afford to feed my pitbull(she eats enough for both of us as it is -around 8 cups a day on an INACTIVE day).

    If I can squeeze a big enough raise out of my boss this year, I'm going to call them up to see about getting my own instead of going to play with everyone else's dogs. Besides...my dog needs a big playmate.

    I love large breeds but in our current living situation our 40 lb husky/border collie mix is max. I did know a guy back in my USAF days in WY that had 3 Tibetan Mastiff males. All around 220lbs. The FILLED the back of his pick up. Great dogs but heaven help anyone who tried to get to his wife or kids while he was in the field. I asked him how much they ate once. He said it was better now that they were 3. Only 50 lbs a week. While growing it had been about 125 lbs a week. He said cleaning up was a breeze with a bucket loader!

    This will give you a nice image to scale by!
