Great Dane in running for 'world's tallest dog' title meets UK's smallest pooch


(Worldkings) Size didnt matter


Everyone likes to think they're the big dog - but when Great Dane Major met Chihuahua Disney, he really was.

The massive mutt is in the running for being named world's tallest dog , standing at 4ft 1ins and measures 40.5 inches to the shoulder.

So when he came face-to-face - or as close as was possible - with 3in tall Disney, it made for some hilarious snaps.

The pair met at Major's home in Perriswood Archery and Falconry Centre in Penmaen, Gower, where the funny height different saw the little pup barely come up to Major's paw, reports WalesOnline .

Major’s owner Brian Williams, 55, said: “Major might weigh 12st, but he’s the loveliest dog in the world.


“He wouldn’t hurt a fly - and that goes for a dog as little as Disney too.”

Disney, 19 months, weighs just over 27oz and hasn’t got any bigger since she was eight weeks old.

Major is hoping to be named as the world’s tallest dog after experts from Guinness World Records run the tape over three challengers in the next few weeks.


He gets through six eggs daily along with a two-kilo bag of mince and more than three pints of milk - while Disney makes do with just enough food to fill an egg cup.

Her owner Natalie Vane, a 28-year-old dog groomer, took Disney from her home in Bilston, West Midlands, to visit Major.


She said: “I can’t get a collar to fit her so I walk her on a ferret harness. Dogs in the park will just knock her over and she’s so small they could do a bit of damage.”

Natalie said: “I can’t believe how well they get on — it’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
