The world’s tallest dog has died at the age of three after suffering from bone cancer.
Zeus, a Great Dane from Bedford, Texas, earned the Guinness World Records title in 2022 after measuring 3 feet 5.18 inches tall.
Zeus’s owner Brittany Davis mentioned in August that her partner had been diagnosed with bone cancer. He started A GoFundMe Fundraiser So that the best possible treatment can be ensured for him. Veterinarians recommended amputating Zeus’ right front leg. But in the days following the Sept. 7 procedure, Zeus developed pneumonia and ultimately died on Tuesday.

Davis said after his death, “We are very grateful for the time we spent with Zeus.” “He brought so much joy to us and joy to so many people. Our entire family will miss him dearly. We are so grateful to the amazing team of humans who stuck with us during this time. Zeus has the best doctors And there were nurses.” Working around the clock to help him, but in the end, he became very sick.”
Davis got Zeus as a gift from her brother when the puppy was just eight weeks old and she said he quickly became an important part of her family. Davis described him as “very laid-back” and said he would never do anything he didn’t want to do.
Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records, recalled his time with Zeus, pointing to his “larger than life character” which was infectious to everyone around him.
Glenday said, “That’s why it’s so sad to hear that he was unwell, and now we’re saddened to learn of his untimely passing.” “I just hope his family will remember his brilliant appearance in the GWR books with fond memories – a fitting tribute to a very special pet.”
Zeus will turn four years old in November.
