Meet The World’s Biggest Puppy Bred To Replicate Extinct Ancient Dog
This puppy might just be nine months old, but she’s already breaking records. Standing six feet tall and weighing 180 pounds, Euphrates, as she’s called, is the world’s largest puppy—and she’s not done growing yet.
Euphrates is a relatively unheard-of breed of dog called the American Molossus. The breed itself might be new, but its closest genetic relative, the Mesopotamian Molossus, is certainly not. In fact, it died out more than 7,000 years ago!
That meant that Euphrates actually closely resembled a dog breed that was literallyZprehistoric! Owner Jared Howser, 41, said that people often mistook his giant puppy for a full-grown dog, for obvious reasons. Nothing about Euphrates’s unique looks screams “puppy!”
