In this 2022 Guinness World Records video, Zeus’ human Brittany Davis talks about what it’s like to care for the tallest dog you’ve ever seen.

“Brittany says feeding the colossal canine gets to be quite expensive and urges those interested in owning a large breed to be prepared to spend money on dog food.

“Zeus enjoys six cups of ‘Gentle Giants’ large breed dog food in the morning and another six in the afternoon, which helps fuel his zoomies.

“‘When he gets the zoomies, he runs around for 30 seconds and jumps up on his chair once he gets tired.'”
