Meet Hulk, a 175-Pound Pit Bull and a Lovable Gentle Giant

Meet Hulk, an enormous pit bull that lives in New Hampshire. He's only 18 months old but is already 175 pounds and growing, making him one of the world's largest pit bulls. Hulk is even trained as a professional guard dog by his owners, Marlon and Lisa Grannan. They run Dark Dynasty K9s, which is a kennel that specializes in pit bull terriers. And, it's partially because they understand dogs so well that Hulk's intimidating size also means that he's a gentle giant. Hulk loves to play with his family, including the couple's three-year-old son named Jordan. He loves to ride on the dog's back!

The family has a special bond with their lovable canine, and he's considered priceless to them. Not only do they care deeply about Hulk, but also changing the general misconception about the pit bull breed. “They're amazing family dogs. They go through extensive training and the little thing a kid is going to do to startle a regular dog won't phase them at all,” Lisa explains to Barcroft TV. “No matter what the breed, it's all completely about how you raise them.”

Marlon echoes this sentiment. “It's all about the amount of care you put into these dogs. We are dogs. We live and breathe this world every single day,” he says. “My hope is that we can stop ignorance and change people's minds about pit bulls in a positive way with all this attention.”

Watch the video below to see Hulk and Dark Dynasty K9s in action. In addition to breeding pitbulls, they train dogs for use by police, celebrities, and anyone who wants canine protection.
