Great Danes are by far the largest dog when you measure the distance between a dog’s paw and shoulder blades.

The tallest dog out there that holds the Guinness title holder for the tallest dog is Freddy. Another Great Dane achieving new heights, quite literally. Freddy measures 40.75 inches tall and lives in England. This dog may hold a world record but that doesn’t stop him from occasionally chewing up sofas! It’s nice to hear that Freedy may be a world record holding dog, but still enjoys being an everyday dog.
Now we’re getting somewhere, Boomer is a Newfoundland dog with nearly world record matching heights was recognized by The Associated Press. Boomer measured in at seven feet long and weighed 180 lbs. His height was only 36 inches though, and in order to be considered for the world record, he needed to be at least 40 inches tall. So, while Boomer isn’t technically a world recording holding dog, we wanted to include this beautiful dog in our list. Boomer passed away in 2012 at age 6.

This dog breed is a mixture of the English and Neapolitan Mastiffs and was originally bred back in 5000 BCE to be a battle dog. While this particular pooch won’t be in any major battles, he just had to be included in our list of largest dogs around the world.
