World's largest dog

Postby stomperrob » Sat Apr 14, 2007 2:32 am

An English Mastiff weighing 282 lbs, he has a 38" neck and his paws are described as being the size of softballs. He's in the Guniness Book of World records and CNN did a story on him a couple years ago.

Did a little digging and just found this:


UPDATE Apr 14, 2007 - Hercules Hoax
This flabbergasting photo of "Hercules" has been widely circulated around the internet; however it has been revealed as a digital fraud. We'll have a real picture of Hercules for you tomorrow.

You can see the photoshop slight error at his right hip. Pretty darn good job though.

It sounds like the record is right, just the photo is fake.

That whole right side is blurred. I don't know why that side gave them trouble, but it goes all the way down his paw and up the inside.

I do know that the record for the Tallest dog is in this weeks Sports Illustrated. It's a Great Dane, when it stands on his hind legs is 7' 2".

The whole thing is save as a really low quality .jpg too, so that hides a lot of the flaws. You can't tell if it is pixelization or a flaw in the cut. ;-D

Here is the Snopes article. ;-D

I know a guy with 2 mastiffs over 200 pounds (bigger than me...) but 284 and that size is crazy... it's gotta be fake! ... but it wouldn't surprise me either way

That's a dog?

How much food do you think that thing requires every day?
