On November 12th, Titan, a four-year old white Great Dane from San Diego, CA was named the 'World's Tallest Dog' by the Guinness Book of Records.

Measuring at a height of 42.25 inches from his front paw to his shoulder (and another 8 inches if you add his massive head), Titan took over the title from 7-year old Gibson, who died earlier this year, after battling bone cancer.

Adopted from a shelter when he was a puppy, the gentle giant suffers from many ailments - He is blind, deaf and prone to epileptic seizures. However, his owner Taylor loves him, and believes he is magical! We say yay to that!

                  Awwww, It's sad that he has seizures, He's blind, And hes deaf. My nana's teddy bear dog died a while ago, And she was blind. I would do everything i can to help that giant dog. question: What is two of your favorite dog breeds? I like the Pomeranian and the Pomsky. P.S Have a nice day!
