    SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft Animals:
    HULK’s great-great grandmother Maia is the OG of dog breeders Dark Dynasty K9s, the pitbull who started it all. Acquired by DDK9s founder Marlon Grennan as a 10-week-old puppy, Maia - whose name means ‘female warrior' - has produced generations of the finest protection pups. But the 12-year-old was diagnosed with terminal cancer a year ago, and now DDK owners Marlon and Lisa face an impossible decision as they decide whether or not the time has come to say goodbye to their beloved matriarch. The story is featured in the new season of Barcroft TV’s hit online show Dog Dynasty, which has racked up more than 150 million views on US-new and Facebook. The show follows the fortunes of Hulk and the other DDK9 protection dogs, which sell for between $5000 and $25,000 and has catapulted Hulk to global superstardom, with the loveable giant having his own dog food brand and merchandise line.
    ***Dog Dynasty season 3 is available on Barcroft Animals US-new page and the Dog Dynasty Facebook Watch page.***

      Doesn't matter whether it's a dog work at eating fish gerbils whatever the pet Maybe I use the word pet loosely with major family members I have had 9 dogs I can count how many cats have an American pitbull now who are rescued from neighbor who is not treating him very well my daughter has a Staffordshire Terrier Pitbull somebody left out in the cold who is covered with mange and bite marks on her face and on her neck maybe wait 30 lb her name is Oreo - Cimarron both have cats and turtles unto us its members of our family and when I have to put peanut down was the first cat we have I'll tell you what it just about ripped my insides out she had developed cancer in one of her nipples her daughter polar also had to roll cancer the damage it was doing was unbelievable and I have them cremated I talked to them a lot especially my peanut poo she had been my daughter's cat and it's one swoop with my daughter yelled at me she went from being tiffaney cat to being my cat and she literally went after tiffaney and attacked her legs twice Tiffany threw her phone at her and then tiffaney watch yourself in the bathroom then she ended up having to watch what was going on and where peanut was and how she talked otherwise Pina would go after her forgetting is so hard put an animal down and it doesn't matter whether you have them for their lifetime or year-and-a-half on a street cat I took it that figures he was over 10 years old and he had scars on scars on scars and he probably never had been inside of house bowl full of food or just a water uneven litter pan soap in the year-and-a-half he was buying you he had it all then he's developed the tumor in his brain and it is feared with his eyesight and I would rather have my heart broken unless any animal that I've ever had and then I believe there in the rainbow Land Rover the Rainbow Bridge running and playing happily with everybody
