Arizona Great Dane is tallest dog ever

By jim Published: February 23, 2010

Meet Giant George is the tallest dog ever. Guinness announced today that the 250-pound blue Great Dane from Tucson, Ariz. stands 3 feet, 7 inches tall from paw to shoulder and weighs 250 pounds, about 100 pounds more than a typical great dane..

Owner Dave Nasser says he got George when he was just 7-weeks old, and it didn't take long before he realized he had a one-of-a kind great dane.

Today the Guiness Book of World Records officially titled George "the world's tallest dog."

George sleeps in a queen sized bed and one of his favorite hobbies is riding around his family's neighborhood in a golf cart.

He eats about 8 cups of food a day, but even so, he's kind of a quiet giant, who doesn't run around much.
