The World's Biggest Dog: George the 7ft long, 252lb Great Dane By Dave Nasser Created: 23:16 GMT, 22 July 2011 The first time we saw George, our beloved Great Dane, he was no more than a tiny, cowering ball of fuzzy fur. As my wife Christie opened the door of the crate he’d travelled in, he teetered to a standing position and looked out at us, moving his head slowly from side to side, taking in the wonder of it all.

At 7'4", Freddy the Great Dane is Britain’s tallest dog He’s Britain’s biggest dog, and at 154 pounds, this Great Dane is still growing. Freddy, 18 months old, is 7-foot-4 standing on his hind legs and dwarfs his 5-foot-4 owner, Claire Stoneman.

Freddy was the runt of the litter, but with a $100-a-week diet of regular dog food — and an occasional treat of peanut butter on toast — he enjoyed a huge growth spurt, Stoneman said.
