Giant George Is the World's Tallest Dog in Guinness

The Scoop: Guinness Names New Top Dog (For Height)!

Not even four months into his tall term, the splotchy Titan (who replaced the late Gibson) has been topped! Meet Giant George, the new world record holder for Tallest Living Dog and Tallest Living Dog Ever. Standing at 43 inches from paw to shoulder, he has a whopping wee .75 inches over Titan (who was already a half-inch above Gibson)!
This big pooch lives in Tucson, Arizona with owner David Nasser and was measured by an official Guinness World Records adjudicator (for all you doubters). Added into George's impressive height are equally impressive measurements of 7'3" from tip of nose to end of tail and a scale toppling of 245 pounds. The dog makes his big media debut on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Feb. 22 — hopefully her tiny puppies are out of his big paws' way!
