On Wednesday, the Guinness World Records announced a two-year-old American Great Dane as the world’s longest living dog (male).
Zeus is an unusually tall dog with a height of 1,046 meters. He lives in Bedford (a town in Texas) with the Davis family. The puppy was adopted by Brittany Davis when he was just 8 weeks old.
Recalling his puppyhood, David told the Guinness World Record: “He’s been a big dog since we got him, even for a puppy. He had huge paws.”
About the reaction she gets when people see Zeus, Davis said, “We get a lot of comments like, ‘Wow, that’s the tallest dog I’ve ever seen, so it’s cool to be able to say now, ‘Yeah, it’s definitely the tallest dog you’ve ever seen!’”.
She also mentioned ‘Wow, that’s a horse!’, ‘Can I ride it?’ or ‘Does he have a saddle?’ are a few questions they often hear. However, the answer to all questions is ‘no’.
