CCTV – This Great Dane could soon be crowned the world’s tallest dog

Three-year-old pet Major is more than seven feet tall when on his hind legs and weighs 76 kilograms. The huge dog sleeps for 22 hours a day on his adult-sized mattress and eats a special diet consisting mainly of chicken and rice.

His owners, Brian and Julie Williams from Penmaen, south Wales, say he may look intimidating but he wouldn’t hurt a fly. Mr and Mrs Williams are waiting for confirmation he is the world’s tallest dog after officials from Guinness visit them and two other dogs before announcing the new record holder.
