    What a huge dog!! Hercules is an English Mastiff and who has a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds. He was recently awarded the honorable distinction of Worlds Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. The three-year-old 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 should explain...I fostered and adopted her after. I would never have an unaltered dog! Story was they were "best friends" on the streets of Gary, In.

    Do you have a pic of what the pups looked like? I bet that was an interesting combination! :)

  • Lynne Mulvey

    No. Heard they were the most adorb ever. One person took 3, but I got her after. Poor traumatized girl. Couldn't let her go.

  • Emily

    No doubt. She's probably lucky she survived.
