#1 – Is this the strongest dog in the world?
These four photos show likenesses of man’s best friend. Can you spot the fakes?
#2 – Is this huge dog really this big?
#3 – Two humans, a horse… and a very big dog?
#4 – What is this? An alien human-dog
hybrid nursing her young?
# 1 – Wendy the Bully Whippet
Wendy is a real living "bully whippet" dog with a genetic mutation. Dog breeders usually try to breed these racing dogs to have one mutated myostatin gene, which makes them run faster. Wendy has two mutated genes, which makes her "double-muscled." Her owner says she’s a really sweet dog.
#2 – George is in the Guinness
Book of World Records
George is a real dog who lives in Arizona with his owners. He stands 43 inches tall and weighs over 245 pounds. Giant George has his own website and YouTube channel. He’s considered the world’s biggest dog and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Tallest Living Dog and the World’s Tallest Dog Ever Recorded.
# 3 – Goodbye, large dog
The photo of the big dog with the horse and owners has never been proven to be of a real dog, and is very likely a fake altered photo that circulates throughout the vast environs of the internets, deceiving the masses wherever it can.
# 4 – This really does exist
The human dog hybrid is real, but it’s not alive. It’s a photo of a sculpture called The Young Family, by artist Patricia Piccinini. It was exhibited at the Austrian Venice Biennale Pavillion as part of the 2003 exhibition called We Are Family. Strangely, the real photo above looks like a photo-realistic painting.
