|Had to chime in because i saw a recommendation for a Leonberger. While I loooove my Leonbergers, I do not encourage them for most people. A Leo sheds a lot year round. Spend some time in a home with a Leo or at a Leo Specialty and you will get a better understanding of the breed.
And because you mentioned an interest in giant breeds in general, I had to chime in as well. Many people admire giant dogs. Understandable. Living with one in your home, being a responsible caregiver of one, being in public/society with one is a very different perspective in life. Oh and don't forget healthcare being different (and usually more $$$). Not every vet clinic can fully accommodate a giant breed dog! If you have an opportunity to spend personal time with with some actual giant breed dogs and/or their people, that could be very eye opening. Maybe pet sitting or attending a Specialty. Either way a great experience!
