It depends on what breed. A Chihuahua can be as short as 6 inches at the withers (shoulder blade), while an Irish Wolfhound can be as tall as 35 inches at the withers. The world's tallest dog was a Great Dane named Gibson, who was 42.2 inches at the withers. It is not common for Great Danes to get that large, as the typical height for a Great Dane is 30-34 inches. The world's shortest dog, Boo Boo, is a longhaired Chihuahua, who is only 4 inches at the withers. These two dogs are the extremes of the dog world.
