From Runt To 245 Pounds
Giant George received the title as the world’s tallest living dog by Guinness World Records as well as the tallest dog to ever exist. The Great Dane measured in at 3 feet, 7 inches from his paw to his shoulder and nearly seven feet long. His weight was recorded at 245 pounds — about 100 pounds larger than the average Great Dane. His owners, Dave and Christie Nasser, shared that he was the runt of the litter. “Eager to play … this big Great Dane was scared of water, scared of dogs a fraction of his size and, most of all, scared of being alone.” At home, he slept in a queen-sized bed.
He loved riding around his family’s neighborhood in a golf cart. He appeared on the Oprah show in 2010. While traveling there, he was given a row of three airline seats to himself. He died in 2013, just before his eighth birthday.
Chilli The Giant Cow Weighs 2,750 Pounds
Jenny Wheadon of Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Somerset, England, takes care of Chilli the big cow, who stands tall and proud at his height of 6 feet 6 inches. In 2008, Wheadon shared in an interview with Today “He’s fed exactly the same as the other cattle — just fresh Somerset grass and good air.” Chilli is 1 and a half feet taller than a regular-sized cow and estimated to weigh a whopping 2,750 pounds.
He was found abandoned at the sanctuary one morning along with four other cows who were all normal sized. Jenny added: “He just grew and continued to grow and grow.”
