World’s Biggest Pit Bull Weighs 175 Pounds
If you thought your dog took up too much room in your home, then there’s a pretty good chance you haven’t met Hulk. Weighing in at 175 pounds, the pit bull is currently believed to be the world’s largest of his kind, and at 18-months old, he’s not quite done growing, just yet.
But don’t let his immense size and his breed’s reputation intimidate you — according to proud owners and New Hampshire residents Marlon and Lisa Grennan, Hulk is a sweet family dog and a best friend to their 3-year-old son Jordan.
“Because pit bulls are only in the media when bad things happen, this myth of them as monsters gets perpetuated, but it’s not true,” Marlon Grannan said. “They might not be for everyone, but under a good leader and with proper training, they make amazing family and work or protection dogs.”
He and his wife are the owners of Dark Dynasty K9s, a kennel that breeds and trains American pit bull terriers as protection dogs for clients worldwide. The couple currently owns 12 pit bulls in training (and one Chihuahua) on their 150-acre ranch, but of the gang, it’s safe to say Hulk is getting the most attention.
A video of him being weighed last month has gotten over 7 million views — though we’re partial to the clips of him bonding with little Jordan. Check it out below.
