OTSEGO, Mich. (AP) – A Great Dane from Michigan is doggone tall.
So much so that he’s now officially the world’s tallest canine.
The Guinness World Records 2013 book out Thursday recognizes Zeus of Otsego, Mich., as its official Tallest Dog.
The 3-year-old measures 44 inches from foot to shoulder.
Standing on his hind legs, Zeus stretches to 7-foot-4 and towers over his owner, Denise Doorlag. Zeus is a single inch taller than the previous record-holder, Giant George.
Zeus weighs 155 pounds and eats a 30-pound bag of food every two weeks.
Doorlag says she had to get a van to be able to transport Zeus.
