Dumbo Dog: Meet the Pooch With the World's Longest Ears

By September 12, 2011

Follow me on:

World's Longest Dog EarsHarbor's doggie ears aren't just long -- they're so long that at a combined 25.75 inches, they're longer than world's shortest man Junrey Balawing is tall.

He's a mere 23.6 inches tall.

Harbor's owner, Jennifer Wert, says her dog has been mistaken for both a very large rabbit and a very small elephant.

But he's no Dumbo -- just a black and tan coonhound, a breed that's already known for their extremely long ears.

You might think the hunting dogs use their long ears for hearing, but they're actually used for smelling -- the ears flap around and bring scents right into the dog's nose.

See more of Harbor in my special photo gallery.

You can also find him in the latest edition of Guinness World Records.
