Is this Landseer Newfoundland the tallest dog in the world?   Measuring 3 feet tall at the shoulders and 7 feet long from nose to tail, his owner thinks he just might be.

Caryn Weber says her 3-year-old Newfie “Boomer” keeps all four paws on the floor when he drinks from the kitchen Fawcett in her family’s farm house in eastern North Dakota.

“Boomer ” can also stare into a car window eye to eye with a driver.  Weber says the fluffy black and white dog “comes into the house and his tail is so high everything gets knocked around.”  I can relate… I often feel like I am in a batting cage when my dogs tails get to going!

This isn’t official just yet, but Weber plans to send Boomer’s measurements to Guinness World Records.

The previous record holder was a nearly 4-foot-tall Great Dane named “Gibson” that died this summer after battling bone cancer.
