  • A Great, Great Dane - Local Dane going for world record as tallest dog.

    Wonder what kind of food they are feeding if he's eating 30lbs a week. That seems rather excessive. I don't know if the picture on my computer is funny - but did he look odd in the back end in the print article?

      He has a low croup and straight rear. So, yes he does look funny in the rear. I think it's impossible to get good conformation on a dog that size.

        All I have to say is I actually think that dog maybe as big as they say he is. (Unlike george)

          from the photo he looks emaciated or something is wrong with his hips and back to make all the bones prominent so I guessing this is a rescue?

              Apparently 30lbs of food isn't enough.

                Based on what he looks like in the photo, I'd neither be proud or wanting to show off what he looks like. He looks sickly and grossly underfed.

                  I also thought he looked horrible. Way to skinny. Agreed on what in the world are they feeding him? 30 lbs of Ol' Roy???

                    Given the apparent lack of correct conformation and his age of only a year old combined with his frail appearance makes me question if they didn't try to "help" him along to get that big so fast.

                      I will say that having a lanky byb dog myself, it was really hard to put weight on Dexter. He actually wouldn't eat as much as I wanted him too and was a very skinny pup up until he was about 2. He's slowly filling out now. I'm not sure this dog is underfed, but I am sure that he doesn't have great conformation and a low croup and straight rear.

                              Atreyu is who I thought of when I saw him on Facebook. I thought his hind end looked very similar to Atreyu's and could only hope that his title of "tallest dog ever" might bring his parents some help in medical bills when his hind end fails him. Poor guy...
