'Hulk' the dog may be the world's biggest pit bull
If you already thought pit bulls looked intimidating, just wait until you meet what possibly might be the world's biggest pit bull.
This dog is a mere seventeen months old, but he already weighs in at over 173 lbs -- and appropriately, he's named Hulk.
Canine breeders Dark Dynasty K9s have documented the American Pit bull terrier's life on their website, as well as Facebook and Instagram. Their most recent YouTube video of Hulk hitting the scale got more than 1.2 million views in just one week.
Though the breed is sometimes considered dangerous (the pooches are actually illegal in the UK), the New Hampshire-based Dark Dynasty K9s insists all their dogs are calm, balanced, family-friendly pets.
Pit bull owners understandably rail against the negative stereotypes, and the ASPCA urges people to remember that, like humans, dogs have different personalities.
"All dogs, including pit bulls, are individuals. Treating them as such, providing them with the care, training and supervision they require, and judging them by their actions and not by their DNA or their physical appearance is the best way to ensure that dogs and people can continue to share safe and happy lives together."

Watch out Clifford ... there's a new big dog in town.
