30+ Giant Dogs with Tiny Babies That Prove Size Doesn’t Matter


Despite their sometimes fearsome appearance, larger or even giant dog breeds can make especially good family friends, loving and protecting your children as their own. And, as this list illustrates, they look absolutely adorable together!

Not all big dogs are good for families – guard dogs or herders can be anxious or over-protective around kids. But some small breeds are also unsuitable around children because of their tendency towards nipping and aggression.

The benefits of raising children with a pet are numerous – they teach responsibility, compassion and confidence, and they will protect your kids and keep them active.
