Meet Freddy the Great Dane! This big boy has officially taken the title of the world’s tallest dog, and as a result, has recently received a Guinness World Records certificate to seal the deal.
Claire Stoneman, Freddy’s owner, always knew that Freddy would be taller than the other Great Danes, but little did she know that this dog would eventually become the tallest dog in the world! And like all pet moms, she’s incredibly proud of Freddy and loves him so much, happy with his massive physique.
Owners Brian and Julie Williams describe Major as having “the biggest heart in the world”.
Brian, 57, from South Wales, said:
“He was a fantastic dog and a huge part of my and Julie’s life. He will never be replaced. People would come for miles just to see him. “
Regardless of his size, Freddy is a very gentle pup with a big personality. He reaches a maximum length of 7 feet and 6 inches, which is understandably large enough to frighten people and dogs. For all of Freddy’s attention, Claire chooses to take him for a walk very early in the morning when no one else is up.
He loves food, chewing on the couch and his favorite activity is napping. He has a sister with who he is devoted and spends most of his time. Claire often shares photos of the pair on their dedicated Instagram page.
Freddy and Fleur cost Claire thousands of dollars every year to keep them happy and healthy, but for her, it’s a pleasure because they’re her babies. And the three of them make such a wonderful family!
Unfortunately, Freddie ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ earlier this year, but his legend lives on!
