tallest dog


Meet Zeus, an awesome Great Dane from Otsego, Michigan who holds the Guinness World Record for ‘Tallest Dog‘. He weight 155 pounds and measures 44 inches from foot to shoulder. But when standing on his hind legs, Zeus measures a whopping seven foot four. And he can drink directly from the kitchen faucet!

Last year we introduced you to Zeus, an awesomely large and handsome Great Dane from Otsego, Michigan. Zeus weighs 155 lbs, measures 44 inches from foot to shoulder, and currently holds the Guinness World Record for World’s Tallest Dog.

Now we’d like you to meet Freddy, another awesomely large and handsome Great Dane. He lives in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, England with his sister Fleur and their doting human Claire Stoneman. Freddy is only 18 months old and already weighs 154 lbs and measures 41 inches tall. And he’s still growing, which means he may overtake Zeus and claim the record.

When Freddy stands on his hind legs he stands a towering 7 feet 4 inches tall. Claire takes him on nighttime walks so that other dogs won’t be scared by his size.

‘If he wants to run after a dog I wouldn’t be able to stop him,’ said Miss Stoneman, who is 5ft 4in tall.

He also eats $125 worth of dog food each week - plus the occasional roast chicken or peanut butter on toast as a treat.

The Guinness Book of World Records is WEIRD.

Most steps walked down by a dog facing forwards balancing a glass of water  Really! (The record is 10.)

Most popping popcorn caught with both hands I think I might start training for this one. 26 in one minute? Ha.

Longest distance full-body burn without oxygen Annnnd, I’ll probably pass on this one.

Largest gathering of people dressed as leprechauns Okay, you get the point, right? WEIRD.

Zeus, tallest dog in the world, has died

WASHINGTON, Sept 13, 2014:

Zeus, the Great Dane who in 2012 earned the Guinness World Record as tallest dog in the world, has died at age five, a local US newspaper said.

Zeus died last week of old age, owner Kevin Doorlag told the Kalamazoo Gazette, a local daily in the midwestern US state of Michigan. He would have celebrated his sixth birthday in November.

The gentle giant, who measured 44 inches at the shoulder and more than seven feet tall when standing on his hind legs, weighed more than 150 pounds, the paper reported.

In 2012, when Zeus entered the records book, Doorlag said his massive canine often sparked astonishment when he took him on walks.

“The most common thing people ask is: ‘Is that a dog or a horse?’” he recounted, according to NBC news.
