Pets That Are Almost Bigger Than Their Owners

Nowadays, with people being chronically overweight and obese, it’s easy to make the mistake and think humans are some of the biggest creatures on the planet. However, they are some huge domesticated animals that you may not believe are actually real.

Leo, the King

Rescued from the side of the road in Tennessee, the extremely overweight – 23 pounds – and adorable cat, King Leo, was on a mission to lose weight. Although he did end up losing 10 pounds, he became sick with inflammatory bowel disease and pancreatitis, and eventually passed away.  *Photo above is not King LeoClick here to see photos of King Leo.

The larger than life dog

Imagine cuddling up alongside this ginormous pooch. I mean seriously, the dog is literally the size of a couch, and is probably just as comfortable to lean on.

Taking photos of my best friend

This little boy and his best friend are literally the same size, no actually, let’s be honest here… have you looked at the picture? The dog is definitely a bit bigger!

Pickles, The Rescue Cat

Weighing approximately 21 pounds, this 3-foot rescue cat literally grew to the size of a dog. *Photo above is not PicklesClick here to see photos of Pickles.

Just look at how comfortable this larger-than-life, yet, adorable dog is with its owner. A day strolling around pumpkin patches and picking pumpkins just doesn’t get any better than this.

Munchkin, the Monster Cat

You would think, as many did, including the Sydney Morning Herald, that this picture is a hoax. How is it possible for a cat, which can generally fit in your hands, to be so huge – 40 pounds? Not surprisingly, but also very unfortunately, Munchkin died of heart disease.

Bailey, the 130-pound “Lap Dog”

As seen in this photo, he can pretty much pass for your own personal sofa, can’t he? He is a Pyrenean Mountain Dog, known as the Great Pyrenees in the U.S. The breed is a great family dog; they are not very active, but are very protective of kids.

Ludo, the world’s longest domestic cat

He was 3 feet and 10.59 inches long when he was measured in October 2015. Ludo’s owner is Kelsey Gill, and they live in the U.K. She holds him in a horizontal position, but imagine him standing up? He certainly is almost as big as her. Ludo is one of the oldest American breeds – a Maine Coon, named after the U.S. state.

Big Jake, The tallest living horse

Horses are generally as big as their owners, if not bigger, but this one is something else. At 210.2 cm (82.75 inches), 11-year-old Belgian gelding Big Jake stands as the world's tallest horse, according to Guinness World Records. He lives in a farm in Ostego, Michigan, and weighs 2,600 pounds.

Lizzy, the tallest female dog

Lizzy, a black and white Great Dane from Florida, is the tallest female living dog on the planet, measuring an enormous 96.41 cm, or 3 feet 1.96 inches, according to Guinness World Records. It looks like she is actually bigger than her owner Greg Sample. They must attract a lot of attention!

Zeus, the tallest dog ever

Zeus towers 7 feet 4 inches while standing on his legs. To put this into perspective, he is as big as an average donkey. Hopefully he doesn’t step on people’s feet much because the bruising will be painful.
