'Titan' (and boy, isn’t that a fitting name) is a Great Dane who measured at 42.25 inches on Saturday.
“He is the absolute sweetest soul. I'm blessed to have him in my life,” Titan’s owner, Diana Taylor said.
Titan is deaf and partially blind and his owner says he's a gentle giant.
“Everyone says ‘you're so great to take care of these deaf and blind dogs,’ but you know what? I'm totally blessed. He is a sweetheart. He's a total sweetheart,” Taylor said.
Titan seems a shoe-in for the record. He measured taller than the previous record holder, another Great Dane, who recently passed away.
