The world’s tallest dog stands the same height as a donkey. Named appropriately after the Greek King of the Gods, Zeus is a three year old Great Dane that is the Guinness World Record Holder for Tallest Dog Ever.


He stands an astonishing 111.8cm (44 inches) from foot to withers – and has no difficulty taking snacks from the kitchen bench top!

When standing up on his back legs he measures 7 ft 4 in. an enormous height even for a human. He weighs 70.3 kg (155 pounds and 11 stone).

A native of Otsego, Michigan, USA, Zeus draws attention when he goes for a walk in his local neighborhood. The most common question his owner Denise Doorlag is asked is, “Where’s his saddle?”
Owning a record-breaking dog like Zeus presents unusual challenges. Everything needs to be bigger. Denise had to buy a van in order to transport him, as he wouldn’t fit in a conventional car. He also eats an enormous amount of food and leaves bruises when he accidentally bumps into his master. He also needs larger volumes of medicine than a regular-sized pooch for them to have any effect.
 

Zeus just beats out fellow Great Dane Giant George for the title of Tallest Dog Ever, standing over him by one inch. Giant George was so large he was given a row of three airline seats to himself when he travelled to Chicago to make an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey show.
