World’s tallest dog dies

The Great Dane named Zeus, who entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s tallest dog, lost his fight against cancer.

Zeus the Great Dane, the world’s tallest dog, succumbed to a three-year battle with cancer.

Zeus, a 1,046-meter-tall dog living with his owner in Texas, USA, entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2022, taking over the throne of the dog with the same name.

Zeus, whose cancer caused the amputation of one of his legs earlier this year, had also contracted pneumonia.

Announcing the news of his death on social media, his owner Brittany Davis said, “Zeus was a very special dog. He was kind, loving, very determined and very happy with his family and friends.”

“He died with his head in his mother’s lap,” said Davis, who had collected donations for treatment online during her dog’s illness.
