Meet the world’s tallest dog. His name is Zeus, and he’s a Great Dane from Michigan. When he’s on his hind legs his 7-foot-4 – to put things in perspective, Yao Ming (the tallest person I can think of right now) is only slightly taller at 7-foot-6.
In the picture above he’s shown drinking from the people-sink, but I’m sure his height allows him to get into all sorts mischief. If Marmaduke comics taught me anything, such mischief might include stealing hams, giving people hernias when he jumps into their arms, and running through the clothesline and somehow ending up dressed like a woman.
I’ve always liked large dogs, but I wouldn’t want to be on the hook for feeding Zeus – apparently he eats 15 pounds of food a week.
The previous record-holder was a Great Dane named Giant George, who’s a shameful 7-foot-3.
Here’s another picture – and video! – of Zeus:
