Guinness says Great Dane George is tallest dog on record
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Guinness World Records says a Great Dane in the U.S. standing three foot seven (1.09 metres) tall from paw to shoulder is the tallest dog ever on record.
Giant George, who lives in Tuscon, is three-quarters of an inch (two centimetres) taller than his closest rival — Titan, a white Great Dane from San Diego.
Guinness officials say there were conflicting reports about Giant George’s height, so they sent a judge to verify it.
The four-year-old, 250-pound blue Great Dane is owned by David Nasser.
