Biggest Dog in World – level 3

10-01-2017 07:00

The Guinness Book of World Records has crowned a massive Great Dane named Freddy as the world’s biggest dog. At four years old, he is 2.2 metres tall when he stands on his hind legs, he weighs 92 kilograms and he lives in Essex, UK with his sister Fleur.

Owner Claire said that he was the runt of the litter and that she bought him a few weeks early because he was not feeding from his mother. She had no idea how big he was going to get.

Annually, Claire spends about 10,000 pounds or $12,258 on food for her pets. Freddy eats 0.5 kilograms of minced beef, 0.1 kilograms of casserole beef, and liver every day. He and his sister have also demolished 26 sofas!

Difficult words: crown (award), hind (back), runt of the litter (the smallest baby in a group of babies), minced (cut into very small pieces), casserole beef (chunky pieces of beef).
