Hercules: The World’s Biggest Dog Ever

Hercules: The World’s Biggest Dog Ever According to Guinness World Records.

Big Dog!

Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of Worlds Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff and who 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. and grew.

Kell: Slightly Smaller, But the World’s Heaviest Dog Hercules’ sheer volume may have won him the Largest Dog world record, but the Heaviest Dog title still rests with Kell who weighed in at 286 pounds in August of 1999. This English Mastiff, however, only has a 32-inch neck – far less than
Hercules’ 38-incher. Think about that for a second though – 32 inches is a standard waist size for a man!

Proud owner Tom Scott said Kell is two years old and is expected to continue to grow for the next two years. Kell needs to be fed 100lb of beef every week, and drinks gallons of goats’ milk to stay healthy…

  1. Puzzling, I saw the reference to Hercules in a news story in Britain’s Daily Telegraph about England’s biggest dog, Sampson, and the story said Hercules weighed 22 stone: 308 lbs. Maybe he has grown since this story above?

  7. Hey “Big Dog’s Daddy,”
    If this is a photoshop job, then so be it. I’m not trying to deceive anyone. It’s just a cool pic. If you don’t like it, don’t look. However, I am reluctant to trust your judgment or take your advice to ‘educate myself,’ considering that you can’t even spell ‘doctored’ right.

  9. Ok,
    I have heard a lot of people say that they didn’t believe this was real. Well the photo is real, but the names are not. The dog’s nickname was Hercules but his real name was “Aicama Zorba of La-Susa” and he didn’t weigh 280 some lbs. He weighed 343 lbs and he IS in the Gunisses Book of World Records. He died and was the largest dog in history. He was also 8ft 3 in. I will put a link to the site of the Gunisses Records so you may take a look. Now, at the preasent time there is a different dog claiming the title of worlds biggest dog but not biggest dog in history. I just thought I’d let everyone know. It is real and there are animals that are bigger than life. Try looking at the ligar named Hercules who is 900 lbs. He is the biggest in the world. He is on Youtube. Also the biggest bird in history has a wingspan of 23ft. Swollow that why don’t you. Now enough crud and arguement.

    • Hi Sarah, i didn’t say you had issues. I asked if you did. I don’t know why you’re getting so worked up over the picture. If you don’t like it, don’t look, but why do you have to be so nasty all over my blog comments over it? So, yes, the comment was directed at you, but I think it’s justified. You may not like arrogant lying people, but I don’t like people who think they’re so cool cause they know how to swear like a drunken sailor. I don’t know too many people who are impressed by that.

  22. Analysis: Thanks to some clever Photoshop manipulation, the dog pictured above (which actually appears to be a Neapolitan mastiff, not an English mastiff as claimed) looks roughly twice its natural size.
