Bully Whippets - The Schwarzeneggers Of Dog The World

These dogs must work out!

In case you haven't seen a Bully Whippet before, they are real! These Bully Whippets gained alot of attention when a viral email went out saying that the Russian Special Forces had developed the strongest dog in the world! 

The website www.hoax-slayer.com had debunked this myth and set the record straight. According to the Baltimore Sun, "The genetic defect first showed up among litters of champion racing whippets, and the extra beefy pups -- called "bully whippets" -- were often put down. A study on Bully Whippets by the National Institutes of Health on the phenomenon -- a mutation of the myostatin gene -- reported that whippets with two mutated copies of the gene become "double-muscled," like Wendy. Whippets with one defective copy of the gene have increased muscle mass that can enhance racing performance in the breed."
