In 2007, Oprah met an equally impressive Great Dane named Gibson, who was the world's tallest dog at that time. Sadly, 7-year-old Gibson passed away in 2009 and left giant shoes to fill.
Just hours before George's flight to Chicago, this gentle giant stepped in and became the new Guinness World Record holder for the tallest living dog...ever!
"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.

Every month, David says George chows down on $250 to $300 worth of dog food and treats. "He's so tall, he can actually reach down into the sink and get a treat," David says.
When he's not frolicking with his canine pals, you might find George riding in style on a golf cart.
"He loves it," David says. "He hops right in, and we're ready to go. It's one of his most favorite things to do."
