What is the Heaviest Breed of Dog?

By John W. Wiley

For young children, this is a question that many will want to know. It always important to them to know what is the biggest and the largest. However, this fascination does not end with children as many adults are also curious to know the answer about what is the heaviest breed of dog. There are a lot of possibilities out there too as there are a number of very large dogs that can easily weigh over 100 pounds. As for the actual answer it is the Old English Mastiff.

This dog is considered the heaviest breed because it can weigh over 100 pounds on up to over 300 pounds. This is a huge dog that dwarfs many other big dogs making it an impressive animal in its own right. As you might be able to guess, these dogs are also very strong as would be needed to carry around all this extra weight.

What is also interesting about mastiffs is that the other variations of this dog can also weigh a great deal also so it is not just the Old English Mastiff. Perhaps the most well known of this bunch is the Bullmastiff. However, what I find most fascinating is that this dog can outweigh other big dogs like the Saint Bernard, Great Pyrenees, Irish Wolfhound, and Great Dane to name a few. All these dogs are very large animals and yet, they are still smaller than this dog breed.

As you can see, the heaviest dog breed is the Mastiff. Knowledge of this information will marvel children particularly if you have a couple pictures. Even better is if you can have them see one in person as their small size in contrast to the big dog will certainly leave an impression on them. However, even if you don’t have any children, at least you will have an answer to a sure to come sooner or later trivial pursuit question.

It is also important to make sure your dog is well protected. For more information on one model, the PetSafe Wireless Fence, click on the following link: Dog Fence.
