OTSEGO, Mich. (WOOD) — Zeus, the Great Dane from West Michigan who held the world record for tallest dog, has died.
The Kalamazoo Gazette reported the 165-pound dog from Otsego died at the age of five last week.
Zeus holds the Guinness World Recorld for world’s largest dog. He stood 44 inches at the shoulder and 7-feet, 4-inches on his hind legs.
