OTSEGO, Michigan —

The Guinness World Records 2013 book published Thursday recognizes Zeus, a Great Dane from the U.S. state of Michigan, as the world's Tallest Dog.

The 3-year-old measures 44 inches (1.1 meters) from foot to shoulder.

Standing on his hind legs, Zeus stretches to 7-foot-4 (2.23 meters) and towers over his owner, Denise Doorlag. Zeus is just an inch (2.54 centimeters) taller than the previous record-holder, Giant George.

Zeus weighs 155 pounds (70 kilograms) and eats a 30-pound (14-kilogram) bag of food every two weeks. Doorlag says she had to get a van to be able to transport Zeus.
