Guinness Records Awarded to Tallest Dog, Tallest Cat and Tallest Horse

Watch out, Giant George. Zeus, a Great Dane, has got a whole inch on you.

Guinness World Records named the enormous 3-year-old dog from Michigan the tallest dog ever recorded. When Zeus, who weighs 155 pounds, stands on his hind legs, he measures a whopping 7 feet, 4 inches tall.

That means the therapy dog can reach the counter tops, and likes to drink his water right from the kitchen faucet, says his owner, Denise Doorlag.

"The most common thing people ask is: 'Is that a dog or a horse?' and 'Where's his saddle?'” Doorlag says.
