While pit bulls and other snub-nosed strong-jawed dogs are often seen as dangerous and unpredictable, this American pit bull terrier and bull terrier cross named Hulk, are sure to melt even the coldest heart. Not because he is fluffy, and not because he is tiny, but precisely the opposite – he’s the biggest pit bull that has ever lived. Being as big as he is (around 173.4lb and still growing), people tend to look at Hulk the dog cautiously, but his owner, breeder, and trainer Marlon Grannon of Dark Dynasty K9 trust this big softie to play with his 3-year-old son.
Pit bulls usually weigh around 30 to 60lbs, so Hulk exceeds it almost four times. This kind of size and mass isn’t particularly healthy for any breed – it impairs their agility and stresses the joints, shortening the possible lifespan.
But even these risks don’t stop Hulk from fathering his first litter of pit bull puppies. Because of their daddy’s big-boned nature, the doggies are expected to grow to the same-sized cute pit bulls as Hulk and should fetch the owner around half a million dollars.
