I don't consider him big, 24" at the shoulder, 54 lbs as of one month ago. Haven't weighed/measured lately. But strong when he wants to be, that's for sure! He is a lovely boy, most of the time.@Brodysmom, Brody is a big boy, isn't he? I bet he's strong as an ox too, pound for pound dogs are much stronger than we are, more muscle density. I got to tell you, the more you talk about Brody the more I like him, I bet seeing all that potential in him is very motivating and endearing.
