Zeus Almighty!

0

Measuring an outstanding 3 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing a staggering 150 pounds, Zeus is now the new Worlds Tallest Dog for 2013. 

 

The Dog Behind the Title

Zeus was just like any other dog 4 years ago. He was brought home by owners Denise and Kevin Doorlag as just a little ball of fur. But this Great Dane was destined for a higher calling! When Zeus isn't breaking world records, he enjoys spending time at the local hospital in Otsego, Michigan. "When we're doing pet therapy, he'll go up to the beds. It's nice with his size - patients don't have to bend over. He's actually at face level," states Doorlag.

The Friendly K-9 Giant

Even though he is quite large, he, like most dogs, is unaware of his size. According to his owners, smaller dogs will be sniffing him, but if they bark, he runs and hides! He loves human affection and attention and is known to try to sit on laps and give plenty of kisses! Of course, for this friendly guy, a simple pet bed will not do; Zeus sleeps on a queen-size futon in his own room. With food available at all hours of the day, play when needed, and a large bed to sleep in, Zeus is living high on life, which is much needed for a world-record holder!

The previous world record was held by Giant George and his owner David Nasser, of Tucson, AZ back in February 2010. Giant George measured in at 3 feet, 7 inches tall but, alas, his title slipped away by a hair.
