Giant George, the Guinness World Record holder of “World’s Biggest Dog,” died last week, one month before his eighth birthday.
Not only the world's biggest but also the world’s tallest dog, at 1,10 meter from foot to shoulder and standing at 2,20 meter on his hind legs, George passed away at his Tuscon, Ariz., home, where he lived with his owner, Dave Nasser.
Nasser said his Great Dane, who was named "World’s Tallest Dog" and "World’s Biggest Dog" by Guinness in 2010, died on Oct. 17.
“'It is with a heavy heart that we announce Giant George died last night. George passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones, one month before his eighth birthday,” Nasser wrote on his official Facebook page.
“We appreciate the love and support you have given Giant George over the last several years. We look forward to honoring his spirit by continuing his charitable works.”
A cause of death was not released by the Nasser family.
