    Default 'Giant George': the 7ft-long blue great dane who could be the world's tallest dog

    Standing at nearly 43 inches tall from paw to shoulder and weighing a staggering 245lbs could this be the world's new tallest dog?
    Pictured here in the parks of Tuscon, Arizona, George, a four-year-old blue great dane, looks more like a miniature horse than a dog.

    'Giant George' and owner Dave Nasser share a couch together: The four-year-old blue great dane, weighs a staggering 245lbs and measures almost 43ins at the shoulder
    The gentle giant, who measures 7ft 3ins from nose to tail, could be a prime contender to take the title from the former record holder, Gibson, a harlequin Great Dane who passed away from cancer last August.
    Now George's owners, David and Christine Nasser, are awaiting confirmation from Guinness World Records to see if he has achieved the lofty heights.
    'He's 42.625 inches at the shoulder,' said David. 'He's very very unique.'
    According to David, George consumes 110lbs of food every month, and sleeps alone in his own Queen Size Bed.
    David and Christine raised George from when he was 7 weeks old, but never expected him to grow so big.

    Magnificent: George measures more than 7ft from nose to tail and tucks away 110lbs of food every month

    With size comes problems: The giant great dane barely fits in the back of his owner's SUV
    The couple eventually had to move their aptly named dog out of their king sized 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, who witnessed the documentation necessary for the Guinness record, 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 rushing to get that necessary documentation into Guinness as other dog owners are coming forth claiming 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.
    It appears as though the sky's the limit for this mammoth hound.

    Paws for thought: George's giant feet dwarf his owner Dave Nassar's hand. Last August the worldís tallest dog, Gibson, a harlequin Great Dane, passed away from cancer

    Great Danes are funny. They don't seem to understand how big they are.

    Put a chihuahua or any kind of puppy near a Great Dane and just
    sit back and have fun. They're hysterically unaware of their size.

    I once had a great dane and a chihuaua at the same time. Guess who was boss, and there was NO question about it.

    I thought that first picture was a painting. That dog is literally the size of a horse! He's a big boy and very cute.

    I'd hate to have to scoop his shit that's for sure.

    So funny, with all the snow on the ground there is dog shit everywhere, very visible. My big dog's turds are easy to spot but then you see these teeny piles of Crumpet's cute little turds and the comparison is laughable. Everybody's dogs have shit everywhere. I guess they always have and it just shows up more with the snow, but they've even done it in the middle of the street!

    The first pic is a trick on the eyes for the most part.
    Just look at the guy's feet and how big they are compared
    to the rest of his body (his head, for one).
    But it is a big dog, no doubt.

    Good Lord, he looks big enough to toss a saddle on him and ride him. Beautiful dog though.

    What was that movie where the Great Dane thought he was a Dachsund? it was old and I think it had Dick Van Dyke or someone like that...

    Beautiful dog, but I wouldn't want to share a bed with him.

    Wow
    I'd be so scared if I had to sit next to him but it would be fun stroking it's fur and he's a lovely colour.
    My childhood friend had a great dane and jack russel-both scared me.
