Freddy, the World’s Tallest Dog, Has Died at Age 8

He was ‘the dog with the most love and the biggest heart.’




Freddy, a Great Dane who held the Guinness World Records title of “tallest dog living (male),” has died at age 8.

He was measured at 3 feet, 4 inches from foot to withers. His record was announced in 2016.

The Guinness World Records website noted: “Standing on his hind legs – not a measurement that GWR officially counts – his height was an imposing 226 cm (7 ft 5.5 in).”

The dog’s owner, Claire Stoneman of Essex, U.K., was quoted saying, “He was not just the tallest dog but the dog with the most love and the biggest heart. A total soppy bugger who was hand fed.”

Oddly enough, Freddy was the runt of his litter.

“I had no idea he was going to get this big at all,” Stoneman said.
