The Great Dane was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the tallest living dog in the world. The size of a pet is really amazing – at the withers the dog reaches 105 centimeters. The dog that became famous is called Zeus, he is from Bedford, Texas, and he is two years old. Recently, his record growth was recorded by experts in the Guinness book and recognized as the tallest dog in the world. A clarification is needed here. Animal height is measured at the withers – the place where the back passes into the neck in simple words, or scientifically – the highest part of the back, the area between the shoulder blades. Now imagine what the size of the animal will look like if you add its neck and head to 105 cm of withers. Perhaps the eyes of Zeus will be able to look into yours. Standing on his hind legs, he towers almost half a meter above people – in this position, his height is almost 2 meters 30 cm. And this is amazing, because it surpasses even such great NBA players in the literal sense of the word as Sean Bradley and Shaquille O’Neal. American dog owner Brittany Davis told the story of Zeus. His 2-month-old puppy was given to her by her brother. Already in puppyhood, the dog stood out for its size, and at first the owner was nervous about his large forms and especially massive paws. Today, Zeus’s menu includes 12 cups of dog food daily, as well as occasional scrambled eggs and dog treats. According to Davis, ice cubes are his all-time favorite treat. Zeus is not only very tall, but also has an unusual brown-gray color. When he visits the local farmer’s market with his owner, people make comments like “Wow, that’s a horse!” “Can I ride it?” or “Does he have a saddle?” Davis answers all these remarks with one short word “no”. Since the dog got into the Guinness Book of Records, he has become a local celebrity, showered with attention and delicacies that the inhabitants give him. Great Danes are a very ancient breed, descended from hunting dogs of the Middle Ages. They have long been known for their large stature, surpassing many other breeds. At the same time, Great Danes are prone to a number of diseases and, as a rule, have a shorter life expectancy than other dogs. Before Zeus, the Great Dane named Freddie was also the champion for a long time, he died at the age of 8 years. The dog lived in the English Essex and had a height of 103 cm at the withers, which is 2 cm less than the current champion Zeus. By the way, in the entire history of fixing dog records according to Guinness, the tallest dog with a height of 112 cm was a Great Dane, whose nickname was exactly the same as that of the current title holder – Zeus. It is worth adding something important to this whole story. No matter how tall our pets are, we love them not for their size, but for their big hearts and devotion. Be sure – the Gods gave dogs to people to warm their cold hearts. And when people learn to love like dogs, the world will turn into a paradise.
