Zeus overtakes Giant George as ‘World’s Largest Dog’

Sep 14, 2012

Guinness World Records has replaced Giant George, the handsome Great Dane who grew from runt to 43 inches, with a new “world’s largest dog”: the 44-inch Great Dane, Zeus.

Zeus’s owner, Denise Doorlag of Michigan, told the publication that the most common comments she hears when walking Zeus are “Is that a dog or a horse?” and “Where’s his saddle?”

Very original, guys.

The tallest dog in recorded history, Zeus measures about 7 feet 4 inches when he stands on his hind legs. Standing normally, he’s about the height of an average donkey. He eats 12 cups of food each day.
