Yogi the Giant Dog

A granny was left ‘in the dog house’ when she told her husband they had adopted a Jack Russell – only for the puppy to grow into one of the biggest dogs in the UK.

Grandmother-of-four Sue Markham fell in love with 1lb 15oz puppy Yogi but husband Robert, both 57, had said he didn’t want a ‘big dog’.

****ONLINE EMBARGO - 00.01 WEDNESDAY 12TH AUGUST 2015**** PIC BY MERCURY PRESS (PICTURED: YOGI THE DOG AS A PUPPY) A granny was left ‘in the dog house’ when she told her husband they had adopted a Jack Russell – only for the puppy to grow into one of the biggest dogs in the UK. Grandmother-of-four Sue Markham fell in love with 1lb 15oz puppy Yogi but husband Robert, both 57, had said he didn’t want a ‘big dog’. So Robert was left stunned when the ‘Jack Russell’ didn’t stop growing and turned into a 15-stone monster – who chomps his way through £37 worth of food every week. Yogi, known in the village as ‘Bear’ due to his size, turned out to be a Boston Great Dane that now has his own three-acre paddock for exercise and wears an outdoor horse coat since he was too big for any designed for dogs.
