TUCSON, Ariz. – A 250-pound blue Great Dane from Arizona gives new meaning to the term “big dog.”

Guinness World Records said Giant George from Tucson is the tallest dog ever on record.

Guinness said Monday that he stands 3 feet, 7 inches tall from paw to shoulder, which is three-quarters of an inch taller than his closest rival – Titan, a white Great Dane from San Diego.

The 4-year-old is owned by David Nasser.
