No, Your Eyes Are NOT Deceiving You

This is Mr. Leon Berger. If you ever crash at the bottom of a ski slope and need help, he might just be the guy who comes rumbling up with a keg of brandy attached to his collar to revive you.

Just don’t let him run you over, or you’re a goner. The slobber might be a bit much, too.

    Is she a teensy weensy hoomin or is he just freaking enormous?! OMG, what a big gorgeous pupper!!! 🙂

  2. Dog Lover, I was wondering the same thing; is that women the size of a an American Girl doll or is the pupper just huge? Anyway, I loff him and it would almost be worth crashing on a ski slope to have a doggie like this rescue me! 🙂

    @Dog Lover & amyliz. Oh my gosh!! Thinking the exact same thing! Looking at the garage door behind as reference, I’m saying that’s a small horse disguised as a dog!! At least he could carry you to safety! 😆

    These are huge, sweet, beautiful dogs. I have the please of meeting one at a dog show. His name was Alvin. He has his own minature pony that he leads around the yard. I have only just come out of the coma after learning about this twosome. Here is a link to a video of the two of them.

  15. I want a dog like this so I can sit atop him like a pony!1!!!1

  16. Wow! that is a big doggie.

  17. Leonbergers are quickly becoming my favourite giant breed of dog. Anything up to 31.5 inches at the shoulders, apparently & 170 lbs. They starred as Buck in the 1997 Canadian version of The Call of the Wild w/Rutger Hauer.

  18. If you shaved that puppeh, it would be a leetle tiny so-and-so.

  19. wow ..really big dog….

    Your child will no longer have to choose between a dog OR a pony!

    I think she is a smaller person. They are big dogs but most I have seen are not that huge. He might have some other breed in him.

    I met a dog around this size once while visiting a friend. When he jumped up against the side of my car in the dark of night, excited to greet his owner’s new guest, I thought I was being attacked by a bear!
