Amazing pics: Are these the world’s biggest dogs?

From tiny dogs, to giant hounds that dominate any room they are in, there’s a wonderful canine world out there.

Today we’re focusing on some of the biggest dogs in the world – and we have the images to prove it.

Take a look at these lovely Fidos, and then image the food bill - or the pulling power on any lead they might consent to you putting on them.

English Bull Mastiff Hercules, featured in one of our pictures, is said to be the biggest dog in the world.

The spectacular pooch has a 38-inch neck, weighs 282 pounds (just over 20 stone) and has paws as big as softballs.

Tell us if you have any huge hounds for us to feature in our columns!
