Dog Extreme Quiz

Can you provide answers to these dog extremes?

*There is no definitive answer to "which dog breed is the oldest to exist". Scientists are working on it. Most sources name one of the three mentioned here. The one on the pic traces back to circa 8000 BCE.

**The speed of the fastest dog breed is ~45mph or ~72.5 kmh and the fastest recorded speed is 50.5 mph or ~81.3 kmh.

***The slowest dog breeds speed up to around 5mph or 8kmh, although some individuals may even go double the speed. This means that an average (adult) human can likely run away from said breeds.

4*The heaviest dog breed adult weigh generally between 160-300 pounds or 73-136 kilos.

5*While the tallest individual dog ever measured was of a breed not accepted as the answer, as a breed, the correct answer is taller.

6*Weight around 2-6 pounds or 0.9-2.7 kg. Height around 5-8 inches or 12.7-20.3 cm.

7*Dog breeds that can kill a lion one on one or doggo-a-leo include eight breeds plus a "wolf dog" which I have arbitrarily disqualified. According to

Sources are a variety of dog related websites all over the internet (incl. such as Kennel Clubs, dog information websites, general information websites etc.) + Guinness book of world records.
