Don't know if these are among the biggest, but the breeds that I've seen that were the most impressive by their size and presence were the Tosa and the Naples Mastiff. These pics are not mine.

Love the carnivorous pony! Where's it's saddle? ;-)

FWIW..was thinking of what the biggest dog I've ever met was...and apart from a male Great Pyrenees (who weighed a good 140), a SAR guy (Search-and-Rescue) had a big husky/Shepherd/wolf bitch. He didn't use her for SAR as she was too likely to take off, but she was one big girl. I recall her looking especially long in the body, not ridiculously so, but definitely moreso than a husky or Shepherd.

I would agree except that this is only a couple hundred miles from three mile island.

It was the size of a big dog. A full grown German Shepherd maybe. It seemed bulkier though. Not fatter.

Of course, I was a bit far away so my scale may be off. It was no small animal.

I am pretty sure that wolf, or whatever-it-was I saw a few years ago, would have weighed in at least a good 80+ lbs. I've seen plenty of coyotes, and that beast was easily 2x the size of your average adult coyote.

Ive seen them get fairly large around here, up to about 40 to 50 pounds...


Oh, for sure. We get them that size on the Cape. 50 lbs isn't a big dog, in my world :-) Karma is 60 lbs, and she's still what I'd call medium-sized. For me a "big" dog is like 80 lbs and up, a "really big" dog is like 125+ lbs... Maybe the OP has different criteria?

Leaves out pups. A full-grown coyote isn't even a particularly big dog, at least by my standards.

Colors are good for that. OP says it's very large though, and the cattle dog isn't, particularly...

We have more coyotes hanging about than I can shake a stick at (and I have shaken sticks at them, and blown whistles and generally tried to chase them away). They've gotten to be bold buggers around here, one stood just off the bottom of my step one night when I came out the front door (of course no camera... or gun), looked at me and casually trotted off to the pasture.

Whatever it is, it's a canid, it's big and feral at the very least if not wild. So be very, very careful. In my area (southeastern Ontario) we have wolves and coyotes. Now I hear that we have coyote/wolf hybrids, and the less surprising wolf/dog hybrids. The dog part of them helps nullify the more cautious wolf part.

I once saw a wolf and/or wolf/dog cross a few years ago, in full daylight, only a few minutes' drive from where I live. That beast was HUGE, at least the size of a large German shepherd, and was clearly in very good weight and coat. I saw it from about 30 ft away (no camera, of course :-/ and when it saw me it just turned and trotted back into the woods, smooth as silk, and it was absolutely silent the whole time I watched it, about 30 seconds. That night the owners heard wolves howling very close by.

pennsylvania? close enough it could be the jersey devil.

Definitely a chupacabra. I'm a chupacabra hunter.

Zoomed way in, it looks like a dog. Coyotes have a thinner muzzle.
Although, horse-pig is sounding FAR more realistic!
