Everybody, meet Freddy! The dog that lives in the UK has officially been named the biggest dog in the world, and judging by its size, it’s a title he deserves fully. If it stands up on his back legs, the dog is 2.23 meters tall. The tallest man in the world was 2.72 m (8 ft 11.1 in) tall.
Measuring all the way up to its shoulders, Freddy is 1.04 m tall. He weighs over 70 pounds, and he is only a few inches shorter than the tallest dog in the world, Zeus, a Great Danish from Michigan, USA.
But despite his impressive size that can be pretty intimidating, Freddy is actually a gentle, loving dog. His owner has had him since he was only a puppy. She adopted him and her sister Fleur when they were small enough to fit in one hand.
