A couple years ago, we introduced you to Zeus, a beautiful Great Dane from Michigan, who was declared the tallest dog in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records. Sadly, Zeus passed away this week, just shy of his sixth birthday. Zeus’s owner, Kevin Doorlag, made the announcement yesterday:
Doorlag is remembering Zeus as a “wonderful dog.” He said he and his wife, Denise, will especially miss letting Zeus sit on their laps while the family would grill on their deck.
“We’ll really miss him,” Doorlag said.
The giant dog stood 44 inches tall at the shoulder and could rear up to 7 feet 4 inches standing on his hind legs.
