Tallest dog (male)

This Great Dane is pretty darn great. Freddy stands almost 3.5 feet tall, and that makes him the tallest living male dog as of Sept. 2016. This impressive height doesn't match another Great Dane, however. Zeus was the tallest dog ever measured, towering over all other domestic creatures with a height of 3.6 feet. If he stood on his hind legs, he reached over 7 feet tall. Zeus died in 2014.
