This huge hound officially entered the record books today as the world's tallest dog - standing more than seven foot on its hind legs.

'Giant' George claimed the prestigious title after Guinness Records officials measured him up at 43 inches from paw to shoulder, or 7ft 3in when 'standing' on his back legs. The four-year-old great dane weighs a staggering 17.5 stone and consumes 110lb of food each week.

He even sleeps in his own queen-size bed.

His owner David Nasser, of Tucson, Arizona, is thrilled George has topped previous holder Titan, a four-year-old great dane from San Diego, who is 0.75 of an inch shorter than George.

Before Titan, the record was held by another Great Dane, Gibson, of Grass Valley, California, who stood at 42.2 inches tall.

Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records, said that the adjudicator was sent after controversy over conflicting media accounts of the tallest dog.

He said: 'We can indeed say now that George is the top dog.'
A few days after he was declared a record-breaker, Giant George appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show.

Scout is annoyed by this article.

A 245# dog is a little too much of a good thing.

How would you like to clean up the doggie bombs dropped by this pup on his daily walks?
