Standing nearly FOUR FEET from paw to shoulder giant George could be the world’s tallest dog.
The Sun reports that the massive pooch, who measures 7ft 3ins from nose to tail and weighs a staggering 245lb (111kg), could be a prime contender to take the title from former record holder Gibson, who died in August.
Now David and wife Christine, of Tucson, Arizona, are awaiting confirmation from Guinness World Records to see if he has achieved the lofty feat.
David said: “He’s very, very unique.”
George eats an unbelievable 110lb of food every month, and sleeps alone in his own Queen size bed. David and Christine raised him from a seven-week-old pup, but never expected him to grow so big.
The couple eventually had to evict him from their king size 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, 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 preparing the necessary documentation for Guinness, but other dog owners are also coming forward to claim 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.
