When puppies are born, they’re quite small and adorable. It’s difficult not to fall in love with them all. What we may not understand is just how big these dogs can get, even at their small puppy stages. This woman had to learn the hard way, but she doesn’t regret a single second of having this canine in her life.
Sue was determined to get a shelter dog that would add some warmth and happiness into her home. Her husband was reluctant to agree, but he said that she could as long as the dog wouldn’t end up being too big. It seemed like a reasonable request, given that a larger dog would take up a lot of space in their home. When Sue when to the shelter, she fell in love with the cute black and white puppy who was just a little under two pounds.
He seemed small enough that Sue’s husband believed her lie about the breed of dog.
She’d told him that it was a Jack Russell Terrier puppy.
So they named him Yogi and welcome him into their home.
What Sue’s husband didn’t realize until it was too late was that Yogi was a puppy of one of the largest breeds in the world: the Great Dane.
Yogi continued to grow and grow, until he ended up being one of the largest dogs in the United Kingdom.
Now weighing over 210 pounds, providing him with enough food each day is a difficult task. When it comes to taking him outside, he has to wear a horse jacket to keep him warm. Share away, people!
