Freddy, The Great Dane, is the Guinness World Record holder for being the biggest dog in the world. He weighs amazing 14.5 pounds. Freddy comes from Great Britain, from the city Leigh-on-sea, Essex. This giant lives with his sister Fleur and their proud mama Claire Stoneman. Although they are from the same litter and as a babies they didn’t differ much, Freddy grew much bigger then Fleur.
When Freddy was just a “little” pup, nothing pointed that he would grow to be the biggest dog in the world.
“I took him earlier from his litter as he was not feeding from his mother anymore. Who would have thought that he would grow so much.” – said Clair.
With such a large dog, even a simple walk presents a challenge. Every morning, Clair wakes up very early and takes Freddy for a walk.
“If Freddy runs after another dog, I won’t be able to stop him.” – explains Clair, who is smaller than her dog.
When Freddy raises himself on his hind legs he 7ft 6in tall, and Clair is “only” 5ft 4in. I think it clear now why they go for early morning walks.
While they were in puberty, these cuties, like most dogs, were mischievous. When Freddy and Fleur were young they loved to eat sofas. Opposed to smaller dogs, that cannot wreck that much chaos, they chewed as many as 23 sofas. Although, if it any consolation, in time they learned it much better to sit on them, then to eat them.
How much these fluffsters eat say the fact that Clair spends 12.5 thousands pounds each year on their food. Freddy alone can 2.2 lbs of minced meat, 9 oz of casserole steak and 10.5 oz of liver each day. But he like most the roast chicken and peanut butter toast. Chicken as a snack, what an appetite, right?
But all of their mischiefs are quickly forgiven.
“They are like my children, it nice when someone needs you. A they really do need me. They are my number one priority in life!” – concludes Clare.
