He’s all ears – really! “He was born with long ears,” says Jennifer Wert of her dog, Harbor.
As a puppy, the black and tan coonhound tripped over the flaps on his head, falling over himself or rolling down the stairs as a result.
Now that he’s 8 years old, Harbor has grown into his very long ears, which measure 12¼ on the left and 13½ inches on the right. He’s also earned some major recognition: Harbor has officially been granted the title by Guinness World Records for “Longest Ears on a Living Dog.”
