    A German basset hound with the longest dog ears in the world, has had them insured for £30,000.

    Jack, owned by Carsten Baus, has ears that measure a total of 13.07 inches.

    Baus and his family realised Jack might be a record-breaker when they read an article saying the longest dog's ears in the world measured 11.6 inches.

    "We measured Jack's ears just for fun and we were utterly surprised," said Baus. "We sent the information to a local paper and soon received a call from an employee at the Guinness Book of World Records."

    Baus said Jack soon became the talk of their small town, but not all responses were favourable.
