Just when we thought we had featured Britain's biggest dog, along comes Tiny.

The hulking hound stands at 2.2m (7ft 3in) on his hind legs – an impressive 25cm (10in) taller than Samson, the awesome beast featured in Wednesday's Metro.

Tiny the Great Dane towers over his 6ft 1in owner Iain Newby

Unlike Samson, a Newfoundland- Great Dane cross, Tiny is pure Great Dane, towering over his 1.85m (6ft 1in) owner Iain Newby.

Mr Newby, 40, said: 'I've never seen a bigger dog than Tiny. He's got 40in legs. I'm a 32in leg. He's bigger than some horses in the fields we walk past.

'It's funny when we are out walking and someone turns round – and almost jumps out of their skin.

'I get some funny looks when I'm calling him back to me, people look as if to say, “Tiny?”

'We used to have a dining room but now we have a Tiny room. He sleeps on a sofa.'

Tiny – found at a rescue centre – lives with Mr Newby, wife Lisa, 34, and sons Jack, three, Harry, two, and one-year-old Bryce in Great Wakering, Essex.

They have four other dogs and a range of exotic animals, all rescued. Tiny, believed to be five, tucks into 2kg (4.4lb) of meat every day and weighs a whopping 108kg (17st).

Still, he may need to keep looking over his shoulder: at the tender age of three and weighing 100kg (16st), Samson is still growing.
