Hercules: The World's Biggest Dog Ever According to Guinness World Records. Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of World's Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff who has a 38-inch neck and weighs 282 pounds. With "paws the size of softballs" (reports the Boston Herald), the three-year-old monster is far larger and heavier than his breed's standard 200lb. limit. Hercules' owner Mr. Flynn says that Hercules weight is natural >and not induced by a bizarre diet: "I fed him normal food and he just"grew"... and grew. and grew. and grew.
I have actually seen this Mastiff on T.V. He is huge. Now there is a Great Dane that is touted as the largest dog. He is a exceeds the breed standard by one full foot. They also had the worlds smallest dog on T.V. with this Great Dane. The Dane was a bit afraid of the little dog because he has had his ankles bite too many times by little dogs.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
If you look carefully at the photo, you'll see that the shadows don't match. The shadow cast by the dog is the result of the sun being higher in the sky than the shadows cast by the other three figures. Interesting photoshop work, nonetheless!
I knew that the name was wrong when I first read the post.
"Worlds largest dog..... The worlds heaviest as well as longest dog ever recorded was an Old English Mastiff named Zorba. In 1989, Zorba weighed 343 lbs and was 8 feet 3 inches long from nose to tail!"
but you guys are probably right it does look fake in the pic. I was thinking about the dogs weight also. I mean if the horse looks like that adn it's brobably well around 7-800 lbs. and the mastif is almost the size of the horse and they said that the mastif was only 280. it sounded a little suspicious to me.
i'd also have to agree dogs are just like humans. and can have just as many heath problems. to over feed your dog like that should be prohibited by anyone. i am a big dog breed lover but i dont want my dog to be fat its not even cute looking.
pinky- I couldn't even look at the pics, I have a brand new kitty and all I could imagine was someone doing that to him. People like that make me sick. Theres a special place in h*ll for people like that! If I ever saw someone abusing/killing an animal, they would wish they were dead. I have EXTREME emotions towards animals, and would probably have to be pried away from killing that person.
