Default World's Tallest Dog

Holy hell!

http://photos.denverpost.com/2012/09...g/#name%20here

A handout picture released by Guinness World Records on September 13, 2012 and taken on November 3, 2011 shows 3 year-old Great Dane called Zeus from Otsego, Michigan in the US which is featured in the new Guinness World Records 2013 book as the tallest dog ever, measuring 111.8 cm (44 in) from foot to withers and Zeus's owner Denise Doorlag. A Great Dane who towers 2.2 meters (7 feet 4 inches) on his hind legs is named the tallest dog ever recorded in the latest Guinness Book of World Records launched on September 13, 2012. The giant canine from Michigan in the United States eats an entire 14-kilogram (30-pound) bag of food every day and weighs in at 70.3 kilograms, the 57th edition of the global records book says.

I saw this one FB a couple weeks ago...this dog just doesn't look well at all :/ And the 30lbs of food a day has to be a typo or an exaggeration...

His owners have already clarified that is not true...I think its 30lbs every two weeks. He is very very thin and his conformation looks almost painful.

I'm guessing he was a pediatric neuter given how loooooong his legs are compared to the rest of his body - ouch!

My dog would eat 30lbs of food every day if I let her. LOL.

He could def use some fat on those bones.

This! When I first got yoshi and didn't know how food fixated she was and that she didn't know when to stop she ate an 8-9 lbs bag of food. And when i got her that was about her body weight.

That was what I was thinking when I first saw the picture. I've seen quite a few great danes and other breeds that look similar to that (not quite as tall) and they where all neutered very very early.
