Pets: Michigan Great Dane takes top honor as 'World's Tallest Dog'
Can you imagine having a dog that consumes a 30-pound bag of food every two weeks and gets frequent stares from passersby?
Zeus was taller than his sire before the age of 12 months. Now at age 3, he towers over other dogs and can drink from the kitchen sink with all four paws firmly on the floor.
Standing at 44 inches from paw to the withers, the pooch weighs 155 pounds.
Zeus, who lives in Otsego with his owners Kevin and Denise Doorlag, is one inch taller than the previous record holder, Giant George, also a Great Dane.
Males of this breed are typically 30-34 inches tall.
