(CNN) – This Great Dane may only be two years old, but he’s already breaking world records.
Zeus from Bedford, Texas is now the world’s tallest living dog, based on Guinness World Records. He stands at greater than 3 feet and 5 inches tall.
Zeus’ owner got him when he was an 8-week-old puppy, and she or he said he was even big as a puppy.
He eats 12 cups of pet food every day and an occasional fried egg.
The tallest dog ever recorded was also a Great Dane named Zeus, who died in 2014. He measured at a whopping 3 feet and 10 inches tall.
Based on the American Kennel Club, attributable to their large size, Great Danes are vulnerable to a series of health conditions and typically have a shorter life span than other dogs.
