My Email wrote:Hercules was recently awarded the honourable distinction of World's Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff and 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.


Unreal. 8-o

I have a hard time believing that. For one if that is his legit size he looks like he would be well over 300lbs????

I love Snopes ;-D

Snopes wrote:Claim: Photograph shows Hercules, the world's biggest dog.
Status: False

Origins: We started receiving the above-displayed photograph (of a woman and a man leading a horse and a large dog through a park-like area), without any accompanying explanation, in March 2007. A few weeks later, someone added the following text (apparently taken from an eBay Guides article) to the circulating version of the photograph: [see Pimpin's post]

The information is accurate, but doesn't have any connection to the dog shown in the photograph displayed above, which appears to be a Neopolitan Mastiff (rather than an English Mastiff) that has been digitally inserted into the image.

Nice. One of the guys at work thought it might be two little people, a dwarf pony, and a regular-sized dog.

No, I hear ya. When I saw that my jaw hit the ground. But then got to looking at it and figured that dog would be closer to 450lbs than 280....... That and about 98% of all crazy animal pictures online are hoaxes!

Glad to see that was fake. Imagine running into that dog in a dark alley. :-o
