Life of a giant dog

Also Zeus often visited hospitals and clinics. It helped kids not to be afraid of the dogs. Well, yes. If a kid becomes friends with such a giant, other dogs won’t look scary at all. Zeus had a fertile social life. It liked to spend time with people but what it liked the most was playing with the other dogs. At first people were afraid to let their pets play with such a giant. But then they say it was very friendly and not aggressive, so everyone was having fun. The biggest problem was that Zeus didn’t feel how huge it was. So it could jump on small dogs and frighten them. But it happened only in the beginning. Then pets found a comfort way to play together and Zeus didn’t harm anyone.

Death of a giant

the tallest dog

Unfortunately, in late 2013 Zeus died. It wasn’t even 5 years old. Until 2013 the title of ‘the biggest dog in the world’ according to the Guinness World Records Book belonged to a dog of the same breed named Giant George. George was shorter than Zeus. Its height was only 110 cm. But its weight was 111 kg. Unfortunately, like Zeus, George died quite early - at the age of 7. Probably, such a gigantic growth affects health and life of dogs, so they die much earlier than their shorter fellows from the same tribe. It should be noted that such growth of these two dogs is not quite typical for this breed - both dogs rose much higher than most of the representatives of the breed Great Dane.

According to the owners, despite their giant size Zeus and George were very friendly and kind-hearted pets, however, both were very clumsy and awkward. They didn’t understand how huge they were. So they crushed things all the time.

To Zeus the title of "the biggest dog in the world" had a great Dane named George. His height at the withers was about 110 cm, and he weighed 111 kg and girth at the same time does not look. Like Zeus, George was a socially active dog, regularly participating in charity events and attending various shows. Well-built, having a beautiful silvery color, George was incredibly photogenic.

The baton of greatness George surpassed his great predecessor, great Dane Gibson. Growing up this dog in the shoulder is 108 cm, and standing on hind legs, he was up to 2.13 m. And for his owner, sandy Hall, Gibson has become a real boon. According to her, she, being fond of breeding dogs since 1982, wanted to raise the highest dog. Well, dreams come true!

Wow! This is the reality, or I play ?! I can not believe it! If this is true, I want to see how, perhaps, this is not an easy guy who cares and takes care of this dog! The same should be so much work, do not even consider how much! And you can imagine how she eats, and how to play?!? I love animals, but in this case I was moved to the owner and his courage, he was not afraid to take on such a responsibility. thereby he became the most famous person in the world that has such a dog! For me he is a madman and lucky at the same time!

The owners of this giant big fellows, after all, be free from such a dog is very difficult, which alone is worth caring for it. I would not dare to live with such a huge dog, despite the fact that I love animals. Very sorry that life is short the dog. But as a security guard, can datathe warranty, and Your house will not drop the criminal. And its power just need to get used to that eating dog will be very much. It is a pity that to rest with a dog as well not take it.

I love dogs and cats, and animals in general, but only a little. Large dogs, I'm afraid, and I try to avoid them. Perhaps it is necessary to get used to them from childhood. But such a big dog I see vpervyj time, he's probably eating a lot, I can imagine how he goes to the toilet. I would not be comfortable to live with such a big dog, because the house he occupies a very large part of the space and quadrupeds that was on his mind. Such a dog and eating a person can easily, not to mention the children.

I never before heard of such Canis Major and that it brought in the Guinness Book of Records Gines. Yes, I imagine how much money was going to the dog. After 14 kg of dry food on the road do not roll. A count in the cost of vaccines, veterinary services and other small items, looms round sum. I know for myself that in our time pets - is not cheap, especially if they are sick, because they treated costs as well as the treatment of the common man. My dog ​​is 9 months old, but he already weighs 40 kg, I imagine what it will be 2 years. By the way his appetite is still the same.
