He came to us as a 60 pound four month old and we thought he was psycho. We considered returning him to the breeder. But we stuck it out and thankfully we did. For now he is the love of my life. At about 42 inches at the shoulder and around 160 pounds, he is the biggest baby I have.
He sits in my lap and talks to me constantly. He is the epitome of a gentle giant. And no I don't ride him!
