For the purposes of this site, we have defined the "canis max" as any canine breed for which the weight of a healthy male commonly exceeds 100 pounds (approximately 45 kg). A comparably sized mixed breed would also qualify as a "canis max." A seriously overweight smaller breed would not. If the breed is also known by other names, these follow in parentheses.
