As told by Dave Nasser – his owner………

The first time we saw George, our beloved Great Dane, he was no more than a tiny, cowering  ball of fuzzy fur. He tentatively  pushed his little nose forward  and gave Christie her first lick


Puppy love: A young George with  Dave’s wife Christie.

Even as a pup he had  comically large paws.  

He came  into our lives in January 2006


Magnificent: George measures more than  7 ft from nose to tail and weighs  18 stone and is the world’s biggest dog, but he’s  terrified of Chihuahuas… 


Paws for thought: George’s giant feet  dwarf Dave’s hand

In the summer of  2006, we had to buy him his  own queen-sized mattress. A male Great Dane typically weighs from 9 to 11 stone,  but by Christmas 2007 George  weighed 15 stone — bigger than most men.


With size comes problems: George the  giant barely fits in the back Of his owner’s SUV 

George loves dolls, especially a stuffed green one that plays a nursery rhyme when squeezed. Whenever he can, he places it between his paws and presses it so he can hear the tune. It is like a security blanket.

Christie applied to the Guinness World Records people on George’s behalf. That February, one of their adjudicators came to watch George being measured in the  presence of a vet. He was officially declared not  just the world’s tallest living dog (43  inches from paw to shoulder) but the tallest dog ever.
