Anyone know anything about dogs? This isn"t normal, right?

The majority of you obviously haven`t seen a pit bull in person before. They are a very lean dog with a lot of muscle mass and they do in fact make great and obedient pets. My cousin breeds pits and they are a bit of a handful to the average person because these dogs are likely to walk you rather than you walk them. However, I love these dogs because they have tons of energy and are very playful.

There are a fair few dogs with that genetic mutation. It also occurs in cows, mice and humans. There`s also at least one human confirmed with it. It doesn`t appear to have any effects other than a very large increase in muscle growth.

Simplified version: There`s a substance called myostatin that is used as an "enough muscle" marker by many animals. The genetic mutation affects myostatin production. Simple as that.

It`s led to the development of a drug to treat muscular dystrophy. The drug is a myostatin agonist (and also for another substance involved in limiting muscle growth). The drug is in the human trials stage now. They got a 60%+ increase in muscle mass on mice. That would do a lot to slow muscular dystrophy down.

Photomstr.Just by looking at his muscles you can ascertain that he’s a killer. I think you`re a perfect nominee for one of those Dawin awards you make mention of in the next post.

Pit Bulls can be super ripped like this, some don`t even need to be worked, or whatever it is people do to build their muscles. When dogs stretch their legs like that, it makes their back leg muscles flex. And just because he is ripped doesn`t mean he`s a killer. Pit Bulls make great family pets in responsible owner homes =]

I`m a photographer and dog lover and that ain`t no trick shot. That dog is a killer. I hope he only bites his master because dogs like that do not belong in a home. Better have a good strong clip on that leash, the one he could bite through in less than 30 seconds . . .

Maybe the look is because this dog doesn`t seem to have a coat. More like he`s been flocked.

It`s a photographic trick. When some being is lunging, whether it be a dog or a human, you can catch them at the farthest extent of the lunge when their muscles are completely extended and get a shot like this. If this were a video where the dog HELD this pose for an extended period, that would be one thing. But with a fast enough lens, I could take a picture like this of my 9 pound Dachshund.

Went to a dogsled pull competition in Eagle River Wis. and there was a pitbull there that was a ball of muscle. I asked the same thing and owner said it was from weeks of training and diet.

As omphalo said, there are mutations that allow muscle growth beyond what is needed (As muscle growth requires fuel, and any organism is built to understand fuel is a finite resource.) The "roid dog" phirephoto posted is actually a DARPA (I think) funded project into controlling this "only create muscles I need" gene. Last time I read about that whippet, it was a perfectly healthy dog.

So yeah, it`s possible this is natural, albeit a mutation. Or it`s just extremely dehydrated, in which case, a LOT of terrier`s would look like this. Even the tiny one`s, they`re all highly muscular dogs, they just normally have a safe level of fat to go with that muscle.

I present to you:
Roid Dog
and to go along,
muscular monkey . Apparently most monkeys are really buff like that, just it`s easier to see with no hair.

If your dog is straining like that against its restraint, then its a goddamn dangerous dog.

Ive done it once, and I would never stall to do it again, I will fu.cking curb stomp any dog that gets free of/breaks its restraints and comes running at me.

Wow! That cannot be natural? Is he a Staffie? Looks like it. I know they`re stocky and often muscly but this is a new level of muscle. His muscles have muscles.

There is a genetic mutation that some dogs have that causes ridiculously oversized muscles, but I`ve never seen a pit bull terrier with it. That actually might be a normal sized pit (they`re bread to be very muscular) the owner has starved down to almost no body fat. Shouldn`t judge based on one photo I guess, but insecure guys with pits sometimes do juice their dogs, too.
