Goblin was a gift I probably shouldn't have accepted. While hanging out with a friend at his house, he randomly handing me a mixed breed pup from their purebred pit bull and said, "Here, have him!" So he came home with me.
He's a large puppy. At three months, he was bigger than my dad's full-grown Pomeranian. He only got larger. He's very top-heavy though, standing on long spindly legs and heavy on top. Whether this is because of his mixed breed half or just him, I have no idea.
While a very large dog, he doesn't seem to know it and always wants to be in my lap when I sit down. Since having my kids, he's become a big baby. The girls scare him and he avoids them as much as possible. It's the only time I think he realizes how big he is and how easily he could hurt them, so he avoids them though they have no issues finding him.
