When you think of a dog, what is the image that comes to mind? If you like the little ones, you would probably think of a Chihuahua, Dachshund or a Pug. If you like them slightly bigger, you would maybe think of a Beagle or a Jack Terrier. A little bigger and you might think of a Labrador Retriever or maybe a German Shepherd? And if you like them a little ferocious, or maybe at least look ferocious, then you will surely settle on a Pitbull.
Well, let us introduce you to Hulk, the pitbull that changes the very definition of a big dog. And mind you, though this guy is big, he’s as gentle as any dog can be.
Bred by Marlon and Lisa Grennan, who live on their New Hampsire farm with their toddler son of three, Jordan, Hulk is enormous. The pitbull is only 18-months old, already weighs 175 pounds, and at the rate at which he is growing, Hulk is all set to take over the title of the biggest dog in the world once he stops growing.
So how dangerous can he be? Marlon Grennan says that in line with his size, Hulk has massive strength and if something had to go wrong, he could do some serious damage. “A dog the size of the Hulk could kill someone if it was in the wrong situation at the wrong time. The power of this dog is unrivaled. If he bit down on someone’s arm with full power it would snap like a toothpick,” says Grennan.
But how gentle is he actually? Well, Jordan, the little guy of three actually rides Hulk like a horse and Hulk complies without any complaints whatsoever! He’s mellow,” says Grennan. “With these dogs it’s all about leadership and how you raise them, rules, boundaries, limits, you know.” And one look at Hulk’s sensitive eyes will tell you Grennan’s telling us the truth.
