A dog in the house is a tremendous joy but ever seen an abnormally grown dog that stands 7 feet tall on his hind legs? Certainly, every day will be interesting having a calm giant at home. Measuring a whopping 43 inches tall from his paw to his shoulders, this giant Great Dane George is a huge bundle of happiness!
Weighing about 245 pounds, George got his name in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010 for being not just the World’s Tallest Dog, but the Tallest Dog Ever!
Dave Nasser and his wife Christie from Arizona have been parents to George since he was a seven-week-old puppy. He was born 1,000 miles away from Arizona in Oregon.
They admire the smallest of things their pet dog does and gaze in admiration. His everyday job includes sleeping on a queen sized mattress, barking at the UPS deliveryman and eating his favourite, chicken and rice.
George started growing at a fast pace, while the other dogs were in their normal sizes, George was almost the size of a fully-grown Labrador when he was just 5 months old!
As his size was insanely growing, his owners were clinging onto the corners while sleeping on the king sized bed while George occupied the centre. Finally, the owners got him his own queen-sized bed!
Though people in the neighbourhood were scared to get close to Giant George, he was a star in public as he always got their attention! Unfortunately, before he could turn 8, he passed away leaving the owners heartbroken.
He even appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show in 2010 and was honoured as the world’s tallest dog! He had a lot of achievements in his paws and lead a life spreading happiness to his owners. Giant George was everything that a man needed, a man’s best friend!
