As puppies, Leonbergers are small, cute balls of fluff.

When they grow up, they are VERY big, and still very fluffy.

Male Leonbergers can be up to 170 pounds, and females up to 135.

Leonbergers are as majestic as lions.

Even though they’re large dogs, they’re as playful as puppies.

And they really love their humans.

They love their other pet friends, too.

Like most big dogs, their lifespan is generally shorter than smaller dogs, averaging about seven years.

Leonbergers’ personality is described as friendly, intelligent, and very laid-back. Some might even say chill.

Leonbergers’ personalities are as big as they are.

And they love to goof around.

Leonbergers are very protective and like to keep watch for their humans.

Just looking around. #leonberger
