50 dogs who don’t understand how big they are

When most people get a puppy, their wish is that the little, cute, and cuddly bundle of furry joy stays a puppy forever. However, as the days go by, nature takes its course, and the little puppy turns into an adult dog.

That’s just the way it is, and there’s little anyone can do about it.

For some dog lovers, the dog reaches its adult size and that’s it. Fortunately, or unfortunately, some dog owners ended up with puppies that just couldn’t stop growing.

As time went by, these folks slowly realized they were living with giant canines. That is when it truly dawned on them that giant dogs are very real.

So, here is a collection of the largest, most fun, and exciting dogs that have more canine vibe to offer than your average dog.

The cute thing is that some of these pets don’t seem to understand just how massive they are.

It’s important to understand that a big dog is not the same as an obese dog. By the way, if you want your dog to enjoy a full life without a lot of health issues, you should make sure it stays within its healthy weight limit.

Yep, big dogs happen.

All dogs require a proper diet to stay fit and healthy, and a number of people are guilty of overfeeding their dogs and making them suffer from obesity.

Dog owners can sidestep such pitfalls by doing research on the ideal food portions for their dogs based on their breed and age.

Obviously, it’s also important to involve your vet if your dog has giant genes to make sure you adjust its food intake properly.

You can’t expect a giant dog to eat the same amount of food its average-sized age mates.

Fortunately, giant dogs are still fun and adorable, even if they are taller than you.
