1. My new puppy is a coonhound. His mom is very big, and it's safe to say he will be too, given that he's not even 3mos. old and weighs about 25lbs. and stands w/his head at my waist. I'm 5'2, barely, and he is as sweet as they come!! The only time he growls is a play growl when wrestling w/my other dog(an 18pounder) and lets him pin him down!! So, to me, it means 'Gentle Giant'
