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 ᴅᴇᴀʟ.
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.
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.
Regardless of his size, Freddy is a very gentle pup with a big personality. 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 his sister Fleur are costing Claire thousands of dollars a year just to keep them happy and healthy.
But Claire wouldn’t have it any other way, and loves her children so much!
Unfortunately, Freddie ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ earlier this year, but his legend lives on! Freddy celebrated his 8th birthday on May 17, 2020, with a garden party in his hometown of Weeting, Norfolk. At the time, he was also considered one of the world’s oldest Great Danes.
“Freddy was such a gentle giant, and it was always a pleasure to see him bounding towards you,” “I still can barely believe that he was the runt of the litter. Freddy brought a smile to everyone’s face and will be missed by every at Guinness World Records,” Glenday continued. “I’m just pleased that we got the chance to celebrate his record-breaking immensity in the books and share his story with millions of people around the world. Rᴇsᴛ Iɴ Pᴇᴀᴄᴇ. Freddy.”
