Gibson, The Tallest Dog In The World

It is with much sadness that we have heard that Gibson, the Guinness World Record™ record-holder for world's tallest dog, has lost one of his front legs to bone cancer.

Gibson, a Harlequin Great Dane, stands an impressive 107 cm (42.2 in) tall and is a dog loved by all who know of him and those who have been fortunate enough to meet him. Owned by Sandy Hall of Grass Valley, California, USA, Gibson has been a great canine ambassador for Guinness World Records appearing on various television shows and being a part of many photo shoots and book launches. Stuart E. F. Claxton, spokesperson for the company in the USA said, "I remember working with Gibson and Sandy on a TV show and it was wonderful the reaction Gibson would get every time he came on stage. Old and young alike were in awe of this big, friendly dog, especially when he stood on his hind legs and put his front paws on the host's shoulders! Without a doubt he's the biggest in more ways than one".

Sandy has told us that fortunately the cancer was caught very early which meant Gibson could be treated quickly. Gibson is now home on the way to recovery and his overall prognosis is good.

Guinness World Records wish him and Sandy all the best.
