Some dogs die too young. This is a list of five great giant dog breeds that are never around long enough.
The Giant Alaskan Malamute is a descendant of the M'loot type of Malamute (the other two types being Kotzebue and Hinman-Irwin—check out this article on the history of the for more info). The M'Loot type is typically larger than the others. Most (if not all) dog registries do not recognize the Giant Alaskan Malamute as a breed separate from the Alaskan Malamute. But because I love giant, fluffy dogs, I'm putting this one on the list!
#9 is the Leonberger, a gentle lion from Germany. These large, sweet dogs average around 30 inches tall and weigh in around 170 lbs. The breed was developed near the town of Leonberg, Germany (hence the name) in the 19th century using a female Newfoundland and a male St. Bernard. Throw in a little Great Pyrenees a bit later and voila! A gentle giant that exhibits the best traits of all its ancestors.
