The Guinness World Records 2013 book, published today, awards the title to Zeus of Otsego, Michigan, who measures 44 inches from foot to shoulder.
Standing on his hind legs, three-year-old Zeus stretches to 7ft 4ins and towers over his owner, Denise Doorlag.
Zeus is just an inch taller than the previous record-holder, Giant George.
Zeus weighs 155lbs and eats around 12 cups of food a day. That's equivalent to one 30lb bag of food.
Mrs Doorlag said she had to buy a van to be able to transport Zeus.
