Freddy the Great Dane is the largest dog in Great Britain, and may soon be the largest dog in the world. The 18-month-old dog stands 7 feet 4 inches on his hind legs, and he is still growing, WDAF-TV reports. Owner Claire Stoneman chose Freddy and his sister Fleur from a litter in which Freddy was actually the runt. His small size proved to be deceiving once he grew out of his puppy stage.

The condition has sent three humans to a hospital in the area, but Nikita's veterinarian, Dr. Darren Lynde, says the cases are unrelated.
