This Great Dane is called Thunder and weighs more than 15 stone but still always manages to sit in her mommy's lap. Thunder is 8-year old and loves the attention he gets whenever he goes for a walk. People often mistake him for a horse and drivers frequently pull over to take pictures with him when he is out with his mommy.

"People stop to take photos and can't believe that he's a dog," Jenny, who herself is 5ft 1, says.

4. Thunder is a very gentle boy who gets sad when someone yells upon him

"He wouldn't hurt a fly," Jenny added.
"If you yell at him, he'll sit in the corner and turn his back to the wall.
"We baby him because he's so good and so gentle.
"He tries to sit on my knee because he doesn't realise how big he is and he's knocked me over so many times but he does it by accident - he's just playing.

5. Thunder's dad is a champion show dog

Jenny and Chris waited for the champion show dog to have puppies and adopted Thunder soon after he was born.

"His tail is at the same height as a man's groin so they have to be careful playing with him too."
"Thunder's free to do what he wants and we have a pond he can bathe in during the summer," Jenny continued.
"He fits in the house because he has his own area. He is 100 percent our child.
"He's such an amazing dog."
