If you have enough space to take care of a large dog breed, adding a big, lovable furry friend to your family can be a great idea. For those with lots of outdoor space, adopting a big dog breed can be a particularly wonderful choice. Plus, large dogs can also deter burglars and intruders, which doesn't hurt. Dogs come in all sizes, from the world's smallest pooch, the Chihuahua, to the towering Great Dane, how much space a dog takes up is a key factor in deciding if they're compatible with you and your living space. Large dog breeds might seem overpowering and intimidating, but some of them are incredibly sweet! Take a look and find the right sized dog for you!
