The world's tallest dog

Image from
Dogs come in many shapes and sizes. Zeus is the biggest of them all. He is a Great Dane from Michigan, and he holds the world record for tallest dog ever.

He  measures 44 inches from foot to withers, and is the same size as an average donkey. If he stands on his hind legs, he reaches 7 feet 4 inches.

As you can imagine, a dog that size requires quite a bit of food. He weighs 155 pounds and eats around 12 cups of food every day. He's too big to ride in the back of a car, and his family had to buy a van to be able to transport him.

  1. WOW! That's intense! I'm still stuck on him eating 12 cups of food every day!

    1. I wonder what kind of food they give him, and how much they buy at a time...
