With his big blue eyes and soulful expression, George was the irresistible runt of the litter. But Dave and Christie Nasser’s “baby” ended up being almost five feet tall, seven feet long, and 245 pounds. Eager to play, and boisterous to the point of causing chaos, this big Great Dane was scared of water, scared of dogs a fraction of his size and, most of all, scared of being alone.

Giant George is the charming story of how this precocious puppy won Dave and Christie’s hearts and along the way became a doggie superstar. In 2010, George was named by Guinness World Records as the Tallest Dog in the World—ever. He appeared on Oprah, and even has his own global fan club. But to Dave and Christie, this extraordinary animal is still their beloved pet, the one who has made them laugh, made them cry, and continues to make them incredibly happy.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alto2 | 1/21/2014

    " Beautiful dog but a "cute" story that was amateurishly written, at best. No competition for "Marley and Me". "

    " And I thought my dog was big... "

    " Really fun book. Being a dog lover, I enjoyed reading the antics of George. Being a Great Dane owner, I was able to relate to much of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aspasia | 12/7/2013

    " I first heard about Giant George on a Today show segment. Even though George is a Great Dane, "great" doesn't even begin to cover his size and personality. His human, Dave Nasser, has written a light and enjoyable read about the highs and lows of owning such a large and famous dog. "

    " Between 3 & 4 stars. It was a fast enjoyable read...and I learned about the record holder for World's Biggest Dog. I loved my 95 pound dog...can't imagine life with a dog well over 200 pounds!! Authors did a good job capturing the joy of owning a dog. "
