Most big dog owners agree on one thing: The bigger the dog, the more there is to love. Big dogs are fun, feisty and fiercely loyal — making them perfect exercise companions, guard dogs, cuddle buddies and even playmates for kids. If you have a big, dog-shaped hole in your life that needs filling, we've come up with our top 10 large dog breeds for you.
A true hunting dog, the German short-haired pointer is bold, intelligent, strong and playful.
The German short-haired pointer requires lots of exercise and attention. If properly trained, the GSP makes the ideal companion for owners with an active lifestyle and a love for the outdoors. Otherwise, this headstrong breed may prove to be too much of a challenge for a first-time owner.
If you do love the outdoors, the GSP is good with kids, though it may just be a bit too feisty for very little ones, although at only about 2-feet tall and up to 70 pounds, this fur baby is a bit smaller for the large breed fan who's not willing to commit to one of the previous adorable monsters.
