Britain’s Biggest Dog

October 23, 2019


COMM: Meet Freddy, the Great Dane, who at over seven foot is believed to be Britain’s
biggest dog. Owner Claire Stoneman from Southend-on-sea, acquired Freddy as a new born pup, along with
sister Fleur. COMM: The runt of the litter, Freddy wasn’t always top dog, but soon went through a growth
spurt. CLAIRE: He just started growing and growing and growing, doing like an inch a month. COMM: Each week the thirty-eight-year-old taxi driver spends a small fortune on Freddy’s
food. COMM: On Freddy alone I probably spend a good eighty, ninety pounds a week on the
food, he has 8 large cans of Butchers, 12lbs of tripe a week, 12lbs of minced chicken a
week, four roast chickens as well so, he eats a lot! COMM: And living with eighteen-month-old Freddy presents many challenges. From drinking from
the kitchen tap, to going through 14 sofas, Freddy and his sister Fleur have taken over
the house. COMM: And when they’re out of the house, even going for a walk can be difficult. COMM: But despite the madness each day brings, Claire wouldn’t change it for the world. COMM: I love spending time with them, they’re my life, they’re my babies, they’re my number
one priority so everything I do revolves around the dogs. I haven’t got any children, they
are my fur-babies so I spoil them in the way that somebody would spoil children. COMM: Standing on his hind legs Claire measured Freddy at seven foot four inches. At only
eighteen months old, he could become even bigger, and surpass current Guinness world
record holder Zeus, who is also seven foot four inches. COMM: If he became the world’s biggest dog it would be great, it would be totally
amazing, and obviously unexpected considering how he started off his life being so small. COMM: But while Claire is proud of Freddy’s size, she says her ultimate consideration
is the dog’s welfare. CLAIRE: All I want for my dogs is that they’re healthy and they’re well so as long as he’s
healthy that’s the main thing for me.
