This absolutely mahoosive Great Dane could soon be handed the vacant title of world’s biggest dog. No challenger has stepped up to the plate to succeed the previous world’s largest dog, Giant George, who died three years ago. But soon it could be three-year-old Major, who is 7ft 1in tall and measures 41 inches from his paw to his shoulder.

However, several breeds of dogs are widely recognized as being some of the largest canines of all. Take a look at these contenders and find out just how big they are.
