Hercules was recently awarded the honourable distinction of World's 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.

Check out Hercules picture !!!

I got that email a couple of days ago and checked Snopes because I didn't believe the pic and there was nothing posted there then. Sorry. :o

lol, it's ok.:D It's still a cool pic. But neo mastiffs are really short. They're huge, and heavy, but they're not tall at all.

Well, if it were true, you'd definitely want to take him to obedience classes. :p

The real give-away is that the text says the dog is an English Mastiff but the dog picture is a Neopolitan Mastiff.

Yeah that is what gave it away for me.
