Make no mistake—George is giant. He is 7'3" from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail. And, at 245 pounds, he's about 100 pounds heavier than the average Great Dane.
"If George steps on you with his paw, his front paws especially, because that's where most of his weight is, it can hurt," says David, his owner.
David says he first realized George, his first Great Dane, was special during a visit to a state fair. "There were three lions there in a pen that you could get really close to, and I remember thinking to myself, 'My dog is bigger than these lions,'" he says.
