The Hulk, formerly known for being an angry green man, is now the moniker for a massive dog of the pit bull breed. The Inquisitr reported in February about the 174 pound cuddly beast. The 174 pit bull is merely 18 months old, but already bigger than typical pit bulls older than him.
Hulk the pit bull does normal dog activities, like howl to his human brother’s favorite tunes, and lets him ride him through their home like a miniature horse.
Hulk, the New Hampsire pit bull, has been helping to bolster the breed’s severely tarnished image.
Though Hulk the pit bull’s sheer size was enough to catapult him into virality, potential memes have yet to materialize. However, this has not stopped hulk from finding his into a potential television show deal. My San Antonio reports that a The Hulk TV show is in the works — again, not about the massive green guy. Though the Hulk’s owner, Marlon Grannan, has not given much details about the show, he did say that the massive pit bull terrier pooch’s show will have a signed contract in the next two weeks.
Marlon Grannan, owner of Dark Dynasty K9s kennel and the Hulk, dispels the common fallacy and myth that pit bulls are vicious beasts.
“He’s a wonderful, excellently trained dog… He plays with my kid, he’s great with the family and he’s so, so sweet. Pit Bulls are only in the media when bad things happen, this myth of them as monsters gets perpetuated, but it’s not true. They might not be for everyone, but under a good leader and with proper training, they make amazing family and work or protection dogs.”
According to ABC News, the family owned kennel breeds and trains American Pit Bull Terriers as protection dogs for customers around the world. Also, they have credentials, as they are a member of the American Dog Breeders Association and United Kennel Club.
Grannan’s Dark Dynasty K9s, the kennel where he breeds the pit bulls, has a YouTube where all of Hulk the pit bull’s viral videos are located. He has faced criticism because of the Hulk. Some have complained about him allowing the Hulk and his son together, which he brushes off with photos and videos. The concern over his work with his pit bulls has also come into question, but he assures everyone that just because they are for protection, does not mean they are bred to be vicious.
“I want to emphasize that we breed and train dogs who come in stable. Our goal is to make these dogs fearless for the intimidation factor that protection dogs need to have, not for them to be uncontrolled and maul or bite anyone. That is improper training.”
For anyone hoping to buy the purported world’s largest pit bull, they will be disappointed to know that Hulk is not for sale. Grannan has said that he and his wife were once offered $500,000, but they declined. However, Hulk the pit bull does have puppies, and for small fee of $30,000, you might be able to own one someday.
