    Meet 'Giant George' the 7ft-long blue great dane who could be the world's tallest dog

    wow

    Is 'Giant George' the world's tallest dog? The 7ft-long blue great dane could claim title | Mail Online

    Standing at nearly 43 inches tall from paw to shoulder and weighing a staggering 245lbs could this be the world's new tallest dog?

    Pictured here in the parks of Tuscon, Arizona, George, a four-year-old blue great dane, looks more like a miniature horse than a dog.



    'Giant George' and owner Dave Nasser share a couch together: The four-year-old blue great dane, weighs a staggering 245lbs and measures almost 43ins at the shoulder

    The gentle giant, who measures 7ft 3ins from nose to tail, could be a prime contender to take the title from the former record holder, Gibson, a harlequin Great Dane who passed away from cancer last August.

    Now George's owners, David and Christine Nasser, are awaiting confirmation from Guinness World Records to see if he has achieved the lofty heights.

    'He's 42.625 inches at the shoulder,' said David. 'He's very very unique.'

    According to David, George consumes 110lbs of food every month, and sleeps alone in his own Queen Size Bed.

    David and Christine raised George from when he was 7 weeks old, but never expected him to grow so big.



    Magnificent: George measures more than 7ft from nose to tail and tucks away 110lbs of food every month



    With size comes problems: The giant great dane barely fits in the back of his owner's SUV

    The couple eventually had to move their aptly named dog out of their king sized bed, when he grew too large for the three of them to share the same sheets.

    Dr. William Wallace of the Buena Pet Clinic in Tucson, who witnessed the documentation necessary for the Guinness record, said: 'In my 45 years of experience working with giant breed dogs, without question, George is the tallest dog I have ever seen.'

    David is currently rushing to get that necessary documentation into Guinness as other dog owners are coming forth claiming the record.

    As they wait for the results to come through, George is busy occupying himself with his new found stardom and even has a Facebook fan page and Twitter accounts for his adorning fans.

    It appears as though the sky's the limit for this mammoth hound.



    Paws for thought: George's giant feet dwarf his owner Dave Nassar's hand. Last August the worldís tallest dog, Gibson, a harlequin Great Dane, passed away from cancer

    Yep. Can't put my fingers on it, but they do look 'chopped. Compare the size of the paw on the rug in pic one, versus the last pic, and use the rug design/pattern as a scale.

    You know Fido is big when his sleeping mat is a king size bed, Texas long.

    Imagine having to take out two rows of seats in the 9-passenger van, just to transport him.

    Imagine coming up to the house, only to see this 7ft behemoth peeking over the fence at you while you walk up to the front door.

    I'm also calling photoshop. Daily Mail isn't exactly a reliable news source. They run a lot of tabloid type stuff.

    I don't know, remember the photography classes in the USN, on second look, a lot of this has to do with the perspective of the photograph.
