"Freddy was actually the runt of the litter," the dog's owner Claire Stoneman, from Weeting in Norfolk, England, told Caters. "[N]ow he's got a Guinness World Record and is set to reach a second." Freddy measures well over 7 feet tall when standing on his hind legs and weighs a whopping 210 pounds (approx. 95 kg). The gentle giant, who is popular in his neighborhood, was treated to a celebration for what might very well be a milestone birthday alongside his younger K9 sister, Fleur, who comes from the same litter.
