His name is Zeus and he is now the tallest dog in the world, according to Guinness World Records. Zeus is just over 2 years old and belongs to Brittany Davis, reports the Washington Post. This American wanted to have a big dog, especially a Great Dane. In February 2020, his wish was granted when his brother surprised him with one. The gray and white puppy is already huge, according to our colleagues: at just 3 months old, he already weighs 11 kg. On a chair, he takes up all the space and his legs are already huge. “To say that I was surprised was an understatement”, tells its owner to the washington post.

World’s oldest dog is a 21-year-old, 66-day-old Chihuahua, according to Guinness World Records

A dog that measures more than 2 meters on its hind legs

The pup was the biggest of the litter, but a bit neglected, yet sweet and adorable. Everything Brittany Davis wanted. But she never would have thought he would be as tall as a human today. And yet the Guinness World Records said the 2-year-old dog was the tallest in the world, standing just over 1 meter tall. If he stands on his hind legs, he measures more than 2.10 m! Impressive, when you know that it also weighs almost 91 kg.

Zeus, as big as he is, sometimes behaves like a baby and likes to get on people’s laps, describes his owner. From the beginning, however, she knew that he would not be a dog like the others because of his large paws. “He always liked to eat and now he eats ten to twelve bowls of dry food twice a day,” says Brittany Davis. He also likes carrots, fried eggs or even ice cubes. He also has fun stealing his mistress’s son’s breakfast when he doesn’t finish it. “He doesn’t have to try too hard, he’s so tall he can stand at counter level and take whatever he wants.”

Why is the dog man’s best friend?

In good health

On the other hand, he is very fond of children and spends time with them. The family also has three little Australian Shepherds and they all get along very well. And with the cat, they avoid each other. Finally, Zeus is not a fearful dog, he is just afraid of oranges and lightning. He has regular vet checkups and is in good health. Both of her 8-year-old parents are still alive.
