The St. Bernard is considered the world’s largest dog breed. The breed originates in the Swiss Alps and is bred for rescue missions in the mountains. Generally St. Bernards are 27 to 35 inches tall when measured at the withers (highest point on the back). Males can weigh up to 257 pounds (117 kg). But the record for the tallest dog belongs to Gibson, a Harlequin Great Dane who is 42.2 inches tall. The heaviest dog was Zorba, an English Mastiff who weighed 343 pounds. So, it really depends on what an individual dog looks like and is you are measuring girth in height or weight, but generally St. Bernards are considered to be that largest.
When you think of large dogs, you probably think of Great Danes, Mastiffs, Newfoundlands, and Saint Bernards. But it can be argued that the tallest dog breed is the Irish Wolfhound, who stands at an average of 31-34 inches tall. Individually, the Guiness World Record of tallest dog goes to George the Great Dane, who is 43 inches tall.
