Irish Wolfhound Secures Incredible Guinness World Record

An Irish Wolfhound in Westerlo, Belgium is now officially the proud holder of a Guinness World Record.

The dog, named Keon, holds the record for the "longest tail on a dog." How long is his tail? 30.2 inches (or 2 feet and 6.2 inches). Not only is this an amazingly long tail, but it's also a total of 1.7 inches longer than the previous record holder.

Keon, who belongs to Ilse Loodts and her family, had to have his tail examined and measured by a veterinarian to receive the official record.

Even though Keon is an Irish name meaning "courageous warrior," his owner tells Guinness World Records that he's a gentle giant and easy to take care of.
