America loves dogs. More than 63 million families have chosen to care for at least one four-legged furry Fido. There is a lot of thought involved in deciding which dog to adopt. The perfect canine companion depends on the owner’s personality, preferences, and needs.

Those who are active outside are better off with a larger breed of dog. Usually the larger dogs love to exercise and run around outside, although some enjoy just dozing indoors with their owner for much of the day.

Larger dogs are great to cuddle too, which makes them a really good choice for kids – these are the top 20 family friendly dogs.

Many of the dogs on the list of the most popular giant dog breeds are hunting or herding dogs. Some need hours of physical activity every day to stay healthy, while others are content to relax indoors for most of the day.
