Zeus the Great Dane, who lived in Otsego, Michigan with his family, passed away this week.
Zeus was five years old, but because of his size, he died of natural causes due to old age.
Even though he reached 44 inches from floor to shoulder, Zeus was a lapdog at heart. His owners say one thing they’ll miss the most about him is the way he liked to “sit on their laps” while they were grilling out on the porch.
In addition to being The World’s Tallest Dog, Zeus also spent time as a therapy animal at area schools and hospitals.
Zeus, we will miss you, and hope you are making people smile up in heaven!
Zeus, the tallest dog in the world according to Guiness World Records, passed away this week.
When he stood on his hind legs, Zeus was over 7 feet tall
Zeus loved being a lap dog…
…He REALLY loved it.
He was truly a gentle giant.
He was always happy and full of life, even in his later years.
He loved sitting around the house on all the furniture – and his owners!
