Default Tallest Dog!

Guinness: Arizona Great Dane is tallest dog ever - Yahoo! News

Quote:
TUCSON, Ariz. – A 250-pound blue Great Dane from Arizona gives new meaning to the term "big dog." Guinness World Records says Giant George from Tucson is the tallest dog ever on record. Guinness said Monday that he stands 3 feet, 7 inches tall from paw to shoulder, which is three-quarters of an inch taller than his closest rival — Titan, a white Great Dane from San Diego.

The 4-year-old Titan took the title of world's tallest dog in 2009 after Gibson, a Great Dane from Grass Valley, Calif., died of bone cancer.

Guinness officials say there were conflicting reports about Giant George's height, so they sent a judge to verify it.

The 4-year-old is owned by David Nasser.

If you love Great Danes like I love them you will enjoy this. This guy is HUGE!! For reference, my male mantlr great dane,Kaiser, is 32" at the withers and 1yr old. This dog is 43"!

I know how much those things eat too!!

I'm a lab guy, but I have never met a dog I didn't like. I wish I could say the same for people.

We used to have a fawn dane who was 37" at the shoulder. My dad is 6'4" and Hannibal would put his paws on my dad's shoulders and have about 3" between the top of my dad's head and the bottom of his jaw.

And get this, Great Danes are normally very good natured.. Unfortunately they think they are lap-dogs.
Just invite the mother-in-law over and laugh your butt off !!

I love how mine crawls into the bathtub for a bath and just sits down and looks at me. He's like, "well,get started."

I love it when they back up to the couch and sit down. Then they look at you like "What, what's wrong, don't all people-dogs do this?"
