A great Dane by the name of George is the tallest dog ever recorded. George started out his life as a puppy with oversize paws. Eventually, he would grow into those paws. At five months old George was already the size of a Labrador and he was growing more than a pound a day!
Now George is a 7-ft long dog and weighs about 252 pounds. His Guinness record was for being 43 inches tall from paw to shoulder. Despite being so tall, the great Dane is seriously afraid of one of the world’s smallest dog: a Chihuahua.
After George’s status was made Guinness-official, his owners, Christie and Dave Nasser, were invited to go on the Oprah show with their dog. They were given a nice room to stay in with all the luxuries such as a sitting room, dining room, and bar.
The Nassers had a king-size bed to share for the evening. Of course, poor George was left trying to stretch out over two divans.
Seeing the poor dog struggle to get comfortable, Dave and Christie Nasser gave up their king-size bed to the dog. They tried to get comfortable on the cushions. At home, George has his own queen-size mattress at the foot of his owners’ bed.
