Best Big Dog Breeds

basset hound

Basset Hound

As total couch potatoes, Basset Hounds love to lounge around — when they’re not on a scent that is. Bonus: They’re extremely patient with young children, making them a great family pick.

Old English Sheepdog

All that fur insulates these herders for their duties out on the farm, but just imagine how cuddly a sweet fluff ball would be. Old English Sheepdogs are known for their gentle, agreeable nature, and love a mellow day at the house after a long walk.

belgian tervuren

Belgian Tervuren

One of the smartest breeds out there, Tervs take their training — and their work — very seriously. All of that focus comes with a lot of energy, so an exercise outlet is a must.

chinese shar-pei

Chinese Shar-Pei

Behind all of those wrinkles is an excellent watchdog and a devoted family member. That said, Shar-Peis stay suspicious of strangers and other dogs, prizing loyalty above all else.

vizla

Vizla

A combination of a retriever and a pointer, Vizlas originate from Hungry. The rust-colored coats are a trademark, as well as their athletic hunting abilities.

afghan hound

Afghan Hound

Sweet and silly, these endearing hounds originated in the mountainous region of Afghanistan. Their silky, fine coat served as protection from the cold at high altitudes, and it requires plenty of grooming.

alaskan malamute

Alaskan Malamute

By nature, malamutes are friendly toward humans but quarrelsome with other dogs. They tend to be stubborn and are not easily trained, and they prefer to be outdoors.

pit bull

American Staffordshire Terrier

People-oriented Am Staffs are both intelligent guardians and natural clowns. They can be a bit strong-headed and do best when they’re made part of the family.

belgian malinois

Belgian Malinois

These herders are incredibly smart and loyal protectors, which explains why they’re the preferred breed for the military and Secret Service. Understandably, Mals require plenty of exercise and stimulation, and they’re happiest with a job to do.
