There are dogs and then there are DOGS! Large in both size and personality, large dog breeds may sometimes require extra muscle, but they're definitely worth the effort. Bigger may not always be better, but it is ALWAYS impressive!
The Hound breeds are the original hunting dogs. Some of the oldest breeds of domestic dogs are hounds, which can trace their origins back to antiquity. Images of these breeds are depicted on the walls of the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs.
