The world’s tallest dog has died at the age of seven in Arizon, USA.

Giant George weighed more than 110kg and was able to reach a height 2.20m standing on his hind legs.

The sad news of the Great Dane’s death was announced on George’s official Facebook page.

Owner David Nasser said: “It is with a heavy heart that we announce Giant George died last night.”

Giant GeorgeΒ ate around 50kg of food each month.

George was so big he had to have his own queen-sized double bed inside the house, where he slept until he died last week.

Record breaker

In 2010, he was named by Guinness World Records as both the world’s tallest living dog and tallest dog ever.
