According to professor James Serpell, of University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine; All Dog species in the world, no matter how different, had originated exclusively from one single species on earth: the gray wolf (Canis lupus) of central Asia. Huge Dog breeds are especially fascinating. According to Wikipedia, a “Huge” breed has to be at least 70 Kilo or more to qualify. Most huge breeds apart from a few on this list, are actually very calm, submissive and nurturing animals. The huge dog breed was originally meant to fend off bears, tigers, and other large beasts. Breeds like the Caucasian Shepherd and the Giant Tibetan Mastiff were breed by mountain farmers in the Kozak regions of Asia. The farmer’s intention was not for the new breed to be the primary pack herder. These huge breeds would travel miles from the pack and circle around its perimeter to spread their scent (thus alerting predators to stay away), and if need be fending off predators from a safe distance. Huge dogs make for some great Photos, so we compiled some for you, and accompanied them with some fun random dog facts (according to “Pet Assure”) and fun quotes. Have fun!
Back Seat Reading
Try reading a book next to your dog in the park. I dare you! Dogs have very low attention spans so make sure you give them some exercise before you sit down for some “me time” at the park. If you don’t this is what you’ll get!
“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” – Groucho Marx
It is a myth that dogs are color blind. They can actually see in color, just not as vividly as humans. It is similar to our vision at dusk.
