Hump Day Distraction: Human-sized, 173-Pound Pit Bull Named Hulk

Mar 4, 2015 at 3:06 pm |

Meet the 173-pound pitbull named Hulk. This canine is only 17 months old, and he is still growing! He is already three times bigger than other dogs of his breed, which is giving him the stigma of being the “biggest bully pit bull on earth.”

The Hulk made headlines after his owners, Marlon and Lisa Grennan from New Hampshire, posted a photo of the dog on Facebook. According to the owners, “The Hulk” has a gentle soul, and they have no problem letting him play with their 3-year-old son. Marlon stated:

These dogs are very balanced and gentle – they are nanny dogs. I don’t think it’s irresponsible for people to have pit bulls and children. They’re dogs just like any other dog. No matter what the breed is, it is a hundred per cent how you raise them.

Still, the Grennans admit that The Hulk “could kill someone if it was in the wrong situation at the wrong time” and “snap an arm like a toothpick”.


The Hulk’s diet is protein-rich, including four pounds of ground beef every day! The Grennans own Dark Dynasty K9, a kennel that specializes in breeding and training security dogs, and admit that they strategically breed their canines for size. They believe strongly in the slogan “the bigger the dog, the better.” The Hulk is their most prized pup so far. Marlon states:

I breed my dogs for size. I have been strategically breeding my dogs for years to keep the best working traits alive.

Although the Grennans say they’re quite careful about who they sell their canines to, a member of the board of Fresno Bully Rescue, Becky Holly, does not agree with their practice. To her knowledge, breeding pitbulls of any size is a bad idea. Holly states:

We get 400 requests a week from people who want to surrender their pit bulls. Adding to the numbers of these dogs is irresponsible.
