Zeus drinks from the kitchen faucet in Otsego, Mich. The Great Dane is now officially the world’s tallest canine according to the record book. 


OTSEGO, Mich. ­ A Great Dane from Michigan is doggone tall.

The Guinness World Records 2013 book published Thursday recognizes Zeus of Otsego, Mich., as the world’s Tallest Dog.

The 3-year-old measures 44 inches (1,120 millimeters) from foot to shoulder.

Standing on his hind legs, Zeus stretches to 7-foot (2.13-meter)-4-inch (101.-millimeter) and towers over his owner, Denise Doorlag. Zeus is just an inch taller than the previous record-holder, Giant George.

Zeus weighs 155 pounds (70 kilograms) and eats around 12 cups of food a day. That’s equivalent to one 30-pound (13.6-kilogram) bag of food.

Doorlag says she had to get a van to be able to transport Zeus.
