While its large size can be intimidating, the Great Dane is a gentle giant that is patient with both adults and children, making it a desirable pet for many families. With a stature measuring up to 32 inches tall and a weight exceeding 175 pounds, adopting a Great Dane is a serious commitment. It’s no wonder the breed is referred to as the “Apollo of Dogs”.
The world’s largest dog, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is Zeus the Great Dane from Otsego, MI, measuring 44 inches at the shoulder, and 7 feet 4 inches on his hind legs. Currently, the tallest Great Dane is a British bloke named Freddy.
