Eight-year-old Great Dane, Lizzie, is now officially the tallest female dog living according to the Guinness World Records 2017.
From Alva, Florida, gentle giant Lizzie measures a whopping 96.41 cm (37.96 in) tall and weighs 73 kg (160 lbs)! She’s lived with her owner, Greg Sample since she was just eight weeks old.
According to Greg, Lizzy has always been exceptionally tall.
‘She’s so large, she outgrew three crate sizes, and has to eat her food from a bowl perched atop a chair for height. Her water bowl however, is in the garage because she’s so sloppy that the water overflows and goes everywhere!’ he says.
Greg describes Lizzy as laid back and sociable, without a mean bone in her body. She’s always been around cats and grew up with a Boston terrier and a Staffordshire terrier whom she played with almost every day. One of her favorite activities is riding in the car – which Greg has to lift her up into. She also enjoys going outside every morning, walking by the river, and playing with her toys. Lizzie shares the accolade with her peers, Zeus and Morgan.
Lizzie’s record is just one of hundreds included in the Guinness World Records 2017 Edition. For more information.
