An American woman has claimed that her pet dog is the world’s tallest canine. At 3 feet tall at the shoulders and 7 feet long from nose to wagging tail, he might be a contender.
Caryn Weber claims that her 3-year-old Landseer Newfoundland keeps all four paws on the floor when he drinks from the kitchen sink in her family’s farm house in eastern North Dakota.
Boomer can stare into a car window eye to eye with a driver, Ms Weber says. A 20-pound bag of dry dog food lasts the 180-pound animal just a couple of weeks.
Ms Weber says the fluffy black and white dog “comes into the house and his tail is so high everything gets knocked around”.
Weber plans to send Boomer’s measurements to Guinness World Records. The previous record holder was a Great Dane that measured nearly 4 feet tall. That dog died last summer.
