Giant George

Giant George is a blue Great Dane currently recognised as the world’s tallest living dog, and the tallest dog ever by Guinness World Records.

George was born on November 17, 2005, and has been owned by David Nasser since he was 7 weeks old. A runt of the litter as a puppy, he now measures 43 inches (110 cm) high at the withers, and weighs 250 pounds (110 kg)about 114 kg, which is about 100 pounds (45 kg) more than an average Great Dane.

At home he sleeps in a queen-sized bed, and one of his hobbies is to ride around his family’s neighborhood in a golf cart.
