The average wolf stands from 26 to 32 inches at the shoulder, and while there aren’t a whole lot of dogs bigger than that, there are plenty which are arounf that height: Akitas, Anatolian Shepards, Great Danes, Irish Wolfhounds, Mastiffs, Saint Bernards, Tibetan Mastiffs, Swiss Mountain Dogs, Kuvaszs, and Caucasian Mountain Dogs, to give some examples.
Well, pound for pound we might struggle in finding a stronger fighting dog breed than a wolf. However, there are several breeds that on average are indeed taller, wider, heavier, and longer than wolves.
Great Danes, are definitely taller and longer than wolfs, but would not be generally seen as “bigger.”
St. Benards, like the gray wolf are around 3 feet tall up to the shoulders and are even heavier than wolves. The gray wolf has a very wide range of weight from 40-175lbs, while the st. benard ranges between 170-200lbs.
Now we haven’t even covered the biggest breed of dog which is the English Mastiff. This animal trumps all features of the wolf. It is heavier, taller, and longer from nose to tail. I would definately conclude that this is a bigger animal. The only thing I would say this dog falls short is the size of it’s teeth. Here the wolf has no canine competitor.
Here is an English Mastiff, just to give you an idea of the size of these creatures. [img_assist|nid=193572|title=Mastiff|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=640|height=449]
