Zeus is the tallest dog ever according to the Guinness World Records; however, Freddy, another Great Dane from the UK, proudly holds the title of the tallest dog alive since 2017.
Zeus was a Great Dane from Michigan that measured 3 ft 8 inches (1.118 m) from feet to withers and 7 ft 5 inches (2.26 meters) when standing up on two legs.
He needed 12 cups of food a day to maintain his 155-pound (70-kilogram) body weight. He was the size of a pony and did not fit comfortably in a regular car.
Zeus, who passed away in 2014 was only one inch taller than Giant George, the former record-breaking dog until 2013, and less than 3 inches taller than Freddy who measures 3 ft 4.75 in (1.035 m).
The tiny, brown beauty from Puerto Rico got the title thanks to her height of 3.8 inches (9.65 centimeters), beating Boo Boo, a 4 inches long hired Chihuahua from Kentucky, who held the title of the smallest dog for several years without anyone being able to dethrone her.
She is a tiny dog with a big personality who knows how to pose for a picture, despite her size being only ten percent of Zeus’ height.
