    Default Meet Britain's largest dog

    Samson: The 19st dog who's head and shoulders above the rest


    When Samson the dog decides he fancies a lie-down on the settee, everyone else scatters.


    And it's no wonder visitors think again about walking up the garden path when he jumps on the gate to greet them.
    Three-year-old Samson is a cross between two of the biggest breeds, the Great Dane and Newfoundland. He is 37in at the shoulder, stands 6ft 5in on his hind legs and weighs an astonishing 19st 10lb.

    If there's a bigger dog in Britain, then Samson's owners Ray and Julie Woods wouldn't want to meet it on a dark night.
    But despite his huge bulk, they are happy for him to play with their eight-year-old, 4ft 3in grandson Josh, pictured right. "Samson is so gentle and wouldn't harm a fly," said Mrs Woods, 54, from Boston, Lincolnshire.
    The couple spend 60 a month on dried dog food and Samson gets through two large bowls a day, with the odd turkey leg for a treat.

    Keeper of the gate: Samson


    Mr Woods, 65, said other dogs keep a safe distance when they spot Samson straining on the leash during their daily eight-mile walks.
    The couple found Samson at an RSPCA centre when he was six months old. His parents belonged to the same owner and were not meant to mate but managed to produce a litter of 11, of which Samson was by far the biggest. Guinness World Records has scrapped its entry for heaviest dog because owners were overfeeding pets.

    Great! It's a good thing to keep a big dog with a smaller breed. The funny thing is that often the smaller breed will be the dominant dog

    Holy Crap!

    I have a Jack Russell and knowing my JR, he would probably try to take on the big dog! He's got no fear that one!

    Wow, I would love to have that dog, but not the food bill! YIKES! He's like a Big gentle giant. I'd feel safe with him guarding my home, thats for sure.

    He would scare the shit out of people, but I'm sure he is a big softy who doesn't understand why people look at him like a monster. I love Samson!

    ^^Agreed. Those breeds are usually gentle. He's a big boy, that's for sure. Can you imagine getting a tongue bath from him? Ewww.
