15 of The Tallest Dog Breeds In The World

Did you know that there are more than 150 different dog breeds, categorized into seven groups? They vary widely in their appearances - from fur type to color, ear shape to nose length, and beyond. One area of great variance among dog breeds is size. Some dogs (like Chihuahuas) stand just under a foot tall at the shoulder and weigh less than 10 pounds, while others (like Great Danes) can grow to be nearly three feet tall and weigh 200 pounds. We're focusing on the latter with this list of 14 of the world's tallest dog breeds:
