6. Neapolitan Mastiff
All of these wrinkles may seem insignificant, but underneath is a powerful watchdog that can weigh more than 150 pounds and stand up to 31 inches on the shoulder. Who says wrinkles are a bad thing?
These large, strong and fluffy breeds are native to… you guessed it, from Newfoundland, Canada! First trained as working dogs for pulling nets and transporting wood, these types are known for their strength and robustness. Need a puppy to shoot you on a sled? He’s your man.
8. Cane Corso
Known for hunting big game like wild boar, the Cane Corsos are built like the Mastiff’s, just a little smaller. They are not as tall as their other friends on this list, but they are muscular and can weigh up to 120 pounds. Do you need someone to pump the iron with you? There he is!
9. Great Pyrenees
They may look like giant cotton balls, but they are known to protect you, the cattle, a floating balloon and the squirrel running along the fence – because you need to be protected from all. These nice giants have the mentality of “If I adapt, I sit down” and will take the 160 pounds (or at least try).
10. Bernese Mountain Dog
They are big, fluffy and everything you need to snuggle up. Bernese mountain dogs were bred to protect livestock and pull carts on Swiss farms. It is a breed of large size and size, with a soft personality, so break things down smoothly.
