Tallest would be Irish Wolfhound. but heaviest would be a different story.. Maybe A Mastiff.

Humm, I'd guess a Great Dane or an Wolf hound (Russian or Irish) but if we are going to throw weight in there, then probably one of those English Mastiffs.

All good guesses! Irish Wolfhounds are the tallest breed, but not the largest. And I guess they've found a new largest breed since the english mastiffs.

The English Mastiff is the biggest dog breed in terms of mass, weighing in at an average of 175-190 pounds. The largest English Mastiff on record weighed in at 343 pounds and measured almost 8 feet long from nose to tail. http://www.bigpawsonly.com/biggest-dog-features.htm

well, It isn't much of a game- she's asking for other people opinions on what they think is the largest dog. obviously There is only going to be one winning breed. but some people who are not aware, may actually learn from this discussion thread.

Do you mean as far as weight goes or as far as height goes? I'm not sure, but isn't a Great Dane the tallest? As far as the biggest in weight I'd have to guess a Mastiff.

Irish Wolfhound - Giant, awesome dogs!
Well I mean based on the breeds height and weight ratio. No, Great Danes aren't the tallest, I think they are second. The tallest dog now is the Irish Wolf Hound (great dogs):) But as too my question; recently Saint Bernards have been accepted as the largest breed. *I'm adding a picture of an irish wolfhound to this response so you can see how large they get!:D They get HUGE!*

I personally would think that a saint bernard would be the biggest dog. They are massive dogs. They can be about 2 feet tall and they can max out at over 200 pounds. But maybe I am wrong? Who knows.

One of my dad's friends has a mastiff that weighs 238 pounds!!! His neck is 38 inches around!!! I love big Great Danes and mastiffs, they're such gentle dogs for being so huge!!! I think Irish Setters are absolutely gorgeous as well.
