7-foot-4 Great Dane becomes world’s tallest dog




A Great Dane who towers 2.2 metres (7 feet 4 inches) on his hind legs is named the tallest dog ever recorded in the latest Guinness Book of World Records launched on Thursday.

The giant canine from Michigan in the United States eats an entire 14-kilogram (30-pound) bag of food every day and weighs in at 70.3 kilograms, the 57th edition of the global records book says.

Measuring 1.12 metres (44 inches) from paw to withers — the point between the shoulder blades at which the official height of a four-legged mammal is judged — he is officially the tallest dog ever recorded, the volume claims.


Now that's a lot of dog. At least they gave him an appropriate name.

For eating that much in a day, why does he look so bad in that pic?

That's very cool, but I wouldn't want to have to clean up after him.

yeah...no way he eats 30 lbs of food a day.

a full grown lion requires around 10 lbs a day. (400 to 650 lbs)

my dogs weigh 120 pounds together and a 30 lb bag lasts me about a month

Well the first picture is a bit tricky looking, but yuupp! he is a big burger.

Let's hope he doesn't place a paw on the law in some parts, ever. It's nice to see man's best friend appreciated.
There was one in my town recently, he/she was very big too, a honey blonde colour..maybe it was a girl, I forgot to look


BTW, is that an English Setter bitch in the video? a lovely dog too, I had a tricolour bitch, and really beautiful. The one in the video has much more black in it. The Dog tends to be more brutish looking, and much bigger.

He looks malnourished.

Someone feed that beast.

155 pounds is light for a dog that tall.

In comparison, Bullmastiffs are 120 pounds and only about 2 feet tall at the withers.

I think it was on snopes (?) but I believe that pic has been proven to be a hoax.
