Tiny - the 7ft 3in dog

Here's Tiny - the 7ft 3in dog
Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Just when we thought we had featured Britain's biggest dog, along comes Tiny.

The hulking hound stands at 2.2m (7ft 3in) on his hind legs – an impressive 25cm (10in) taller than Samson, the awesome beast featured in Wednesday's Metro.

Unlike Samson, a Newfoundland- Great Dane cross, Tiny is pure Great Dane, towering over his 1.85m (6ft 1in) owner Iain Newby.

Mr Newby, 40, said: 'I've never seen a bigger dog than Tiny. He's got 40in legs. I'm a 32in leg. He's bigger than some horses in the fields we walk past.

'It's funny when we are out walking and someone turns round – and almost jumps out of their skin.

'I get some funny looks when I'm calling him back to me, people look as if to say, “Tiny?”

'We used to have a dining room but now we have a Tiny room. He sleeps on a sofa.'

Tiny – found at a rescue centre – lives with Mr Newby, wife Lisa, 34, and sons Jack, three, Harry, two, and one-year-old Bryce in Great Wakering, Essex.

They have four other dogs and a range of exotic animals, all rescued. Tiny, believed to be five, tucks into 2kg (4.4lb) of meat every day and weighs a whopping 108kg (17st).

Still, he may need to keep looking over his shoulder: at the tender age of three and weighing 100kg (16st), Samson is still growing.
