Greatest of the Danes: Meet the New World's Tallest Dog

By February 24, 2010

Follow me on:

Giant George: World's Tallest DogI was pretty broken up last year when the animal world lost one of the true giants, Gibson the Great Dane.

Gib had been battling bone cancer, but before he passed on he managed to "write" a book and rub paws with Oprah, Jay Leno, Paris Hilton, and other alpha dogs.

Now, there's a new top dog: Giant George, a Great Dane who's not just the world's tallest dog, but the tallest dog ever measured in history, according to my friends at Guinness World Records.

George sleeps in his own queen-sized bed and goes through 110 pounds of dog food a month.

He's also got his own Web site, a Facebook fan club and Twitter account.

See George up close and other record holders in my special New World Records photo gallery.

Thank you for this article and pic. I absolutely adore great danes. If you ever want a perfect pet, go with a great dane. We had the blessing of “owning” Bonnie many years ago, and she wasn’t a dog; she was an angel to everyone she met…an exquisite animal, and my best friend.
