Guinness World Records 2013 lists Michigan dog as world’s tallest, 44 inches foot to shoulder
The Guinness World Records 2013 book published Thursday recognizes Zeus of Otsego, Mich., as the world's Tallest Dog.
Kevin Doorlag stands with his dog Zeus in Otsego, Mich.
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.
