Great Danes are easily the tallest dogs in the entire world. On average, these dogs reach up to 30 to 32 inches at the shoulder, with their weights ranging from 140 to 175 pounds. But don’t let their massive size fool you because these canines are gentle giants and total love bugs.
Just like your typical big type breeds, Great Danes require plenty of space to move around. Even though they probably scare many folks because of their colossal size, they are really very sweet, cuddly, and tenderhearted dogs. One impressive canine is determined to prove that he is an excellent dog, and that size truly doesn’t matter.
Recently, Freddy was officially awarded by the Guinness World Records to be the world’s tallest dog. Her owner, Claire Stoneman, knew how tall a Great Dane usually was, but she was unprepared for Freddy’s sudden height spurt. This record-breaking pup even received a certificate, which made it official!
With his height reaching an incredible 90 inches, Freddy was way bigger than all the other neighborhood dogs. He often went on his regular walks in the early hours of the morning to avoid upsetting other dogs who lived nearby. Claire didn’t mind since she wanted Freddy to feel relaxed whenever they walked outside.
Even with his unbelievable stature, Freddy was still your usual Great Dane. He was affectionate, playful, and a big couch potato. He adored his sister Fleur and often cuddled close to her. Claire created an Instagram page that featured the duo and their daily adventures.
The cost of caring for two Great Danes was most likely in the upper thousands of dollars, but Claire honestly didn’t mind and continued to dote on her babies. They were her family, and no cost was too great for her beloved canines.
Between these two gigantic pups, it looked like Claire had her hands full.
