The big fluffy darling of the giant dog family, Saint Bernard, is intimidating in size and as loving and calm as any dog could possibly be. They often measure 27 inches at the shoulder and can weigh as much as 180-200 lbs.
Some like to compare Scottish Deerhounds to Irish Wolfhounds. On the face of it, Deerhounds are slightly smaller than wolfhounds. They stand around 32 inches and can weigh up to 110 lbs.
Big and hairy, and potentially mistaken for a white Saint Bernard, the Ovcharka stands 26 inches and clocks in at 110 lbs. Their fringes cover their eyes, making them hard for strangers to read.
This breed resembles a beast out of a comic book creepy tale. Some even say its thick neck coat makes it look a little like a lion. It stands 26 inches and can weigh up to 140 lbs.
