Posted at 12:28 PM, Sep 11, 2023


Zeus's owner, Brittany Davis, confirms that Zeus has died today, after a brief struggle with pneumonia.

"Our baby boy is gone. Our hearts are broken. He had the absolute best doctors who sat of the floor and cried with us," she said, via the GoFundMe page. "He fought hard but the pneumonia was just too much. He is not in pain anymore."


There's a record holder in Texas... and he's a very, very good boy.

He's also very, very big.

A great dane named Zeus holds the title for world's tallest living dog in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Zeus measured in at 7 feet tall when he set the record in 2022. Zeus is three years old and lives with his humans in Bedford, Texas.

Now, he's fighting cancer, and had a leg amputated recently.

The family is asking for medical help with a GoFundMe.

"He's hurting now. So we don't want him to hurt. We don't want him to be in pain," said Brittany Davis, his owner. "I want him to be happy. I want him to be as healthy as he can be. Mostly I want him to be pain free and enjoy what time we have left."
