Admin worker owner Nina Ayling, 27, of Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, reckoned: “We had absolutely no idea that he would get so big.

“We had seen the breeder’s previous litter of the same cross-breed and none of them grew to the size of Mylo.

“Everybody loves him and he’s a well known character down at the local pub where he likes to jump up and lean over the bar.

“People who have never seen him look absolutely stunned.

“They mistake him for a man in a bear suit or say they thought it was Chewbacca.

“We can’t go anywhere without people staring at us or being stopped by people asking us what he is.

“We even had to make a sign for him to wear saying ‘I’m a Newfypoo, I’m one years old and I don’t know if I’m going to get any bigger’ because people kept asking us.”

But it seems loveable Mylo is blissfully unaware of his size and enjoys nothing more than sitting on someone’s lap or taking a seat at the table with his family.

Nina added: “He seems to think he’s a lap dog, he loves sitting on people’s knee and getting stroked.

“If you stop stroking him he’ll even bat you with his paw to let you know you need to carry on. He’s just a big friendly giant.”
