London, Feb 23: A Great Dane from Tucson, Arizona, has made it to the record books as the tallest dog in the world.
Giant George, who walked into the Guinness World Records, measures 43 inches (109cm) from paw to shoulder and 7ft 3in (2.2m) from nose to tail.
The mighty was given the title after a special Guinness World Records adjudicator came to verify measurements.
The 245lb Giant George, who eats nearly 110lb of food every month, beat the previous record holder, Titan, a Great Dane from San Diego, California, by 0.75in (around 2cm).
"This record has also sparked great interest in finding other pet records, so we're asking everyone to check their dog houses, scratch posts and under the bed - they just might be living with a record-breaking pet," the Telegraph quoted Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records, as saying.
