Say hi to The Hulk. Very probably the world’s biggest Pit Bull, the enormous canine weighs in at an astonishing 174 lbs.
The huge Pit Bull is owned by Dark Dynasty K9s, from New Hampshire, whose website tells us that they specialize in “breeding and training the finest American Pitbull Terriers”.
The Hulk, who towers above his humans when standing up on his hind legs, has quickly become an internet sensation after a video of him shared on YouTube has been viewed more than 1.2 million in just one week. (Scroll down for the video.)

American Pit Bull Terriers were bred initially as fighting dogs by crossbreeding bulldogs, mastiffs and terriers. They were descended from English dogs used to bait bulls and bears for cruel pit fights.
Pit Bull Terriers continue to be used for illegal dog fighting in the U.S. In the U.K. the breed is considered so dangerous that it is illegal to own one.
However, the breeders at Dark Dynasty K9s insist that their canines have calm, well-balanced temperaments and would be perfectly suitable as family pets.
