West Michigan’s own Zeus, world’s tallest dog, has died

OTSEGO, Mich., -- The Doorlag family in Otsego is mourning the loss of their dog Zeus, who passed away last week. The giant Great Dane was officially named the "world's tallest dog" by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2012.

Zeus was more than seven feet tall when he stood on his hind legs. He weighed about 155 pounds and was the size of the average donkey.

The family tells FOX 17 Zeus was a "great dog" that will be greatly missed.

Generally, Great Danes live until about eight years old. Zeus would have turned six in November.
