Each Tuesday we will share a photo we received claiming to be the World's Largest Dog. A lot of you might have seen these photos. We couldn't verify the source so we leave it up to you to believe it or not. Photoshop can make look anything big. Let us know what you think. Have you seen any of these dogs in person? Do you have a photo that you want to share with us?
4) The Largest Irish Wolfhound:
This week our featured Largest Dog in the world is an Irish Wolfhound. Guess what?! I am sure this photo is not fake and shows the actual size of the dog. Although, I must admit that the photographer did a very good job to make it look bigger than it is. There is one thing we cannot be sure though! Is it really the largest dog in the world??? Hard to tell... probably not but it does look huge!
Many people falsely believe that the largest breed in the world is the Great Dane (height: 30-34 inches or 76-86 cm). While, Great Danes are called the King of All Dog Breeds they are not as tall as the Irish Wolfhounds (height: 28-35 inches or 71-90 cm). The two breeds are very similar in size but in average, Irish Wolfhounds are larger.
