Mastiff/Chihuahua cross

A breeder is working on developing a new breed - "the Satan's Mastiff." They are breeding a Chi to an English Mastiff, and predict the resulting mix will look like a 150lb Chihuahua. Puppies will be sold once the breed has been perfected.

(Yes, it's a joke.)
(Really.)
(I hope.)

I agree that looks very real. It's sick but looks real.

Well a couple of things made me assume it was a subtle joke - first there is NO contact information, which you'd expect from someone who has apparently produced at least one litter. Also things like "Expression: Evil."

This was posted on another board & the consensus was a joke. And the photo of the "first alpha male" is...well, silly!
A vet pointed out on the other board that the Chi was not a good example of the breed but the OEM was exceptional. The whole thing just seemed too silly to be real.

Well. I hope it's a joke.

I sure hope it's a joke. 5 lb Chis are bad enough - the thought of a 200lb one is just terrifying!!

Hopefully its a joke...if not I hope to God that the female is the Mastiff...I'd hate to imagine the mating process with a mastiff doing the riding!! poor little Chi!!!
