20+ People Who Wanted a Dog but Ended Up With a House Bear

Do large dogs actually realize how big they are? Sometimes it looks like these fuzzy giants believe they’re still puppies, who haven’t grown at all (it’s the living room that’s shrunk for some inexplicable reason!). All these ’babies’ really want is to be loved and petted by their owners. And to enjoy regular hearty meals, of course!

We seem to have come up with a peculiar discovery: the bigger the dog is, the less chances you’ve got not to fall in love with it! Here are 20+ photos that offer all the proof you need!
