Caucasian Shepherd

Speaking of massive dog breeds, the Caucasian Shepherd can range anywhere from 80 to 220 pounds. According to dogtime.com, these dogs were bred to help shepherds in the Caucasus Mountain region keep their flocks safe from predators like wolves and bears. While they do not have super high levels of energy, they do need lots of space. They need a big yard with a tall, solid fence to keep them inside. They love to be with their family, so they should spend most of their time inside. If this breed is left to be chained up alone in a yard, they can become aggressive, and having a dog this big become aggressive is a recipe for disaster. You must be very invested to own a dog like this.
