This long haired scraggly looking dog is massive. They usually weigh 115 to 180 pounds. They were bred to hunt large game but they are good family watch dogs and obedience dogs. They are easy to train and need to be trained and socialized from a very young age. This is also a hound dog so they have a keen sense of smell.
Now you have an idea of some of the most loyal dog breeds both small and large. Pick the breed that best suits your schedule and think about how much exercise you will be able to give them. If you’re a very active athletic person, choose a dog that can come along with you on your hikes and adventures and if you tend to be more of a homebody or work a lot, a smaller apartment dog is a great choice.
