The World’s Biggest Dog Ever

For some reason I can’t see a dog in this picture .. just 2 horses.

Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of Worlds 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.

Probably photoshoped but still good enough for RGS.

Thank you Modilingua for the link.

It’s definitely fake. Hercules does exist, but he got the record in 2001. This photo is not only photoshopped, it’s not even the right breed of dog.

I forgot to mention, the pic isn’t photoshopped, it’s just an old camera trick

I say it’s definitely photoshopped. You can see the blurring of the grass around the dog’s legs.

Actually, the woman’s legs don’t look right either, as if somebody lost control of the stamp tool.

Accutlaly If you look at the shadows they do not appear for the people…. and if you look by the guys hand, it is a little blurry between the hand and shirt…. the shadows just do not add up in the photo…

The dog is a Neopoliton Mastiff not an English Mastiff

:bow Neapolitan Mastiffs :bow

The above poster is correct in pointing out that this is a Neo, not an English Mastiff. Neo’s are gentle giants.. one of the coolest breed of dogs in existence. What’s up OA?

although this looks cool, i have a 4 year old mastiff that weighs in at about 205-215 lbs and its not close to the size of this fake picture. guiness should sue them for using their name with this lie.

I received this picture in an e-mail so I went looking around the internet to try and verify the story. I Googled the name Hercules World’s Largets Dog and got resulst for thousands of websites that have this same dog pictured above. If this is TRULY the largest dog on this planet then there would be more photos than just the one that was taken out of some cheesy romance novel and “painted” on. If the dog’s size is real then there would be other photos and postings out there somwhere. I do not believe the story or the picture but hey, you have to give someone credit for their creativity. Right?

Big C .. I totally agree with you … I am pretty sure someone replaced a horse with that dog 😉

We breed Neapolitans since 1994. We visited most breeders around the world. This fake picture is creating false info about the breed! And a lot of stupid people think the breed should be this size!!

True this is the only picture, I looked him up.
I guess though Hercules is real, he just isnt this huge.
This picture is a fake, and not a very good one!

You all are stupid, he is REAL!
get it through your thick fucking heads!
I mean, google it!
And you “breeder”?
just because your dog isnt as big as him doesnt mean you need to be this jealous.

I only agree to the people who believe he is real!

I’m starting to think that some people here needs to have their heads re-examined with a chainsaw. Really folks,can’t see his hind legs? I saw one of them in the above pic. His right paw is slightly raised and you can see the paw of his hind leg. Also if you are seeing blurs then I suggest contacts or glasses. They tend to cure those “blurs”.

Damn people, you’ve been shot down twice with this link The dog exists. It might not be “Hercules” but he’s a very big dog.

*revs chainsaw* Who here needs their head examined by Dr. Enigma? :)

#31 Andrea :

I have to agree that some things about this picture dont seem quite right, but i wouldnt put it past this breed of dog to get this big. It definitely is a Neopolitan though. Regular mastiffs arent that colour. Also, it could be real b/c that other link ppl posted of them sitting down? That seems fairly real. I dont know. Its a hard one!!

Every once in a great while a mastiff will become extreamly larger than the breed standard. It is no diffrent than seeing a 7ft. human. Yes it does happen in the dog world too. Also a extreamly large english mastiff could have a face that looks like a neo. When the reach 200lb plus, THERE IS NO BREED STANDARD. . . Lastly, i had seen a litter of all 7 lb puppies. One puppy was still born at 21 lbs. So think that over if you question this picture being fake. . .

It’s fake because you can’t even see the dogs shadow.. The shadow behind the man is the mans shadow. There’s no shadow for the dog.!
