Dog with Longest Ears Sets New World Record (4 pics)

Dog with Longest Ears Sets New World Record  -
Harbor is the Guinness world record holder for dog with the longest ears. The black-and-tan coon hound from Boulder, Colorado, in the US has been awarded the 2012 Guinness World Records title for "longest ears on a living dog". His left ear is 31.12 cm(12.25 inches) long and his right is 34.29 cm(13.5 inches) long. According to the Guinness world record data, Harbor's ear-span is greater than the height of the world's shortest man - Junrey Balawing (23.5 inches).

Owner Jennifer Wert said that when her 8-year-old dog was a puppy, he would trip on his ears and fall down stairs. These days, she says people often stop them to ask questions, take photos or tug on his ears.

This black and tan coonhound has been registered in the Guinness Book of world records for his longest ears, breaking all the previous records. Harbour takes the new title from Tigger (13.5 inch ears), a bloodhound from Illinois, who sadly passed away of old age two years ago.
