Great Dane Major is a three-year-old pooch who towers over his owners Brian and Julie Williams and could soon be named the world’s tallest dog.
The height of this gentle giant is 2 meters and 13 centimeters when he is standing on his hind legs, while his weight is about 72 kilograms.
However, Brian and Julie assure that despite his frightening look Dane wouldn’t hurt a fly and is extremely kind.
The huge dog sleeps for 22 hours each day on his adult-sized mattress and eats a special diet mainly consisting of chicken and rice.
Describing their extraordibary pet Mr Williams said: “He is the biggest-hearted dog in the world. He is such a fantastic animal. People love seeing him. They play with him all day.
We bought him as a pup and he has been with us ever since. He has got free reign of the place if he wants to go out, he isn’t locked indoors.
He’s afraid of his own shadow, he’s absolutely great with kids and an absolute star. He brings us a lot of happiness and is so easy to look after. He’s just got a terrific temperament and never gives us a minute’s problems.”
Mr and Mrs Williams, Penmaen, south Wales, UK, are currently waiting for Guinness World Records committee to compare their minion with two other dogs and cofirm he is the world’s tallest dog.
