You’re probably sick and tired of hearing me talk about how big everything is in the U.S. compared to Italy. Well, it’s not just houses, cars and people. Meet George, a four-year old blue Great Dane with aspirations to become the Guinness Book of World Records title holder for World’s Tallest Dog. I think he’s got a good chance.  He’s even from Arizona!

George and Diane Nasser from Tucson knew that their 7-week-old Great Dane puppy would grow up to be a big dog, but according to news sources, they had No Idea just how big he would become. Here are a few of his stats: 7’3″ long from nose to tail tip; 42.625″ tall at the shoulder; weight 245 pounds. That’s a lotta pooch, with an appetite to match. George eats 110 pounds of dog food every month. You can learn more about this enormous canine here.
