George is a wonderful pet because of his less aggressive nature and friendly attachment to humans. David says that George is very calm and likes to play a lot. When George was a small puppy, he liked to play tug of war and games of fetch. George needs a queen size bed to sleep and he likes to eat dog food, eggs, meat and yogurt. George likes to roam around with his family and to visit the golf course. They like to play with him in their own neighbourhood. Although George is a gentle giant, sometimes his bark scares strangers.
David said that they were unaware that adopting a Great Dane puppy would result in a celebrity. The nomination of George for Guinness records was a conflict due to many erroneous reports. At last the council decided to send one of the judges to David’s house to verify the actual measurement. He found that George is three quarters of an inch bigger than the previous record. The results were officially announced by The Oprah Winfrey Show in February of 2010. This was a memorable moment for David. He said that it is very proud to have the Guinness record holder as their family member.
