Even when you have a fairly big sized family, it’s helpful to have a pet around the house.
They can entertain kids, keep the kids active and even give your children more self esteem as they grow!
Bee Fisher and her husband Joshua were debating to get an animal for their home with three active little boys!
Joshua wanted to get a horse, but eventually Bee convinced her husband that dogs would be a better choice. Now they had to decide what breed would be best. Their highest priority was getting a breed best known for being good around children. You certainly don’t want a dog that is rough-housing around your children.
They decided the breed they wanted was Newfoundlands. As you will soon see this breed have something special about them!
You can probably what makes these dogs so special. They’re HUGE! Meet Ralphie and Boss. These two gigantic dogs have developed an adorable relationship with Bee, Joshua, and their three little boys.
Newfoundlands are known to be calm, loving and relaxed. The Fishers knew that this would be the perfect breed for their family.
But when Bee and Joshua met a full-grown Newfoundland they realized how massive the dogs could become!
Bee told the Daily Mail of their shock.
We didn’t realize how big they were in-person until we went to get Ralphie from the breeders.
Newfoundlands are capable of growing up to 6 feet long, from nose to end of tail, and weigh over 270lbs! That’s heavier than an average man!
The Fishers were probably a bit anxious bringing Ralphie home for the first time. But soon their worries turned into smiles.
Their three boys Lenox, Cruz, and Tegan instantly befriended their furry friends and admired how tall they are! Ralphie is 125 pounds and Boss is over 160 pounds! No one is going to mess with these kids!
Ralphie and Boss are absolutely amazing around children. The three boys regularly play all over them, poking and prodding. Ralphie and Boss take it like the champs they are!
“They are sweet and loving, it shows in our photos they are truly lap dogs. They are gentle giants and we can take them anywhere.” ― Joshua Fisher
The two dogs are local stars, too! Everywhere the family takes them, crowds of people gather around all amazed at the two massive dogs!
You might be wondering what the Fishers don’t love about Ralphie and Boss. Well, it turns out they shed a lot and the drool!
“They slobber on work clothes — they shake their heads and it goes flying everywhere. We have to keep emergency towels around the house and their hair gets everywhere. It can be crazy, but it is worth it.” ― Joshua Fisher
Still, Ralphie and Boss are absolutely in love with their human brothers. It’s hard to imagine better protectors than two massive dogs over 100lbs!
