Two years ago, a Nevada couple fell madly in love when they first laid eyes on a beautiful little Great Dane puppy. Of course, back then, this puppy wasn’t too big for their home!
Within weeks they noticed that their little Great Dane puppywas growing at a pretty impressive rate. Within months, he had doubled in size, then tripled. Now, two years later, their dog named Rocko is over 160 pounds and stands at about 7 feet tall when he raises up on his hind legs.
According to ABC7, his growth spurt has been nonstop ever since he was a puppy. And now, he’s getting so big that Rocko’s owners think he has an actual shot at being named the Guinness Book of World Records tallest living dog!
His two owners say how sweet Rocko is, for instance how he’ll cry if he hears an animal in distress on the television. Rocko may be a big lumbering pooch, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a sweet and soft heart.
On top of everything, it seems that although Rocko is gigantic, he doesn’t seem to realize his own size. He’ll often climb all over his humans like he did when he was a puppy. His sweet humans are too nice to push him off whenever he sits on them, but you can’t help but laugh at the image of a 160 pound dog sitting in this woman’s lap. It doesn’t get much sillier than that!
