- The world’s tallest dog is a two-year-old Great Dane.
- He stands 3 feet, 5.18 inches tall.
- He eats 12 cups of food in a day.
According to Guinness World Records, Zeus, a two-year-old Great Dane, is the world’s tallest living dog. He stands at a towering 3 feet, 5.18 inches tall, which means he could walk around on all four legs in the shallow end of a pool.
His owner, Brittany Davis of Bedford, Texas, told Guinness:
“He’s been a big dog since we got him, even for a puppy. He had huge paws.”
Zeus was 8 weeks old when he was given to Davis. He enjoys visiting the Dallas Farmers Market, going for walks, and dozing by his window. He also gets zoomies, which must be a sight to behold.
This enormous dog fuels himself by eating six cups of food for breakfast and six cups for dinner, as well as his favorite treats (ice cubes) and whatever else he can get his hands on off the counters.
Davis told Guinness that people are very impressed with how healthy Zeus is.
“He loves going to the vet; he gets lots of attention,” she added.
He’s like a different member of the family, Davis remarked, especially in comparison to his three Australian shepherd brothers.
Zeus and his human brothers share a queen-sized bed.
Someone at a family gathering said Zeus might be the tallest living dog, and after measuring him, the family decided he had a good chance.
He falls slightly short of the world’s tallest dog, a Great Dane called Zeus. Young Zeus stands at 1.046 meters, whereas Zeus the Elder, who died in 2014, was 1.118 meters.
Davis told Guinness:
“We get a lot of comments like ‘Wow, that’s the tallest dog I’ve ever seen, so it’s cool to now be able to say ‘Yes, it’s definitely the tallest dog you’ve ever seen!’
