“I have no concerns about any of the dogs around my son. They’re amazing family dogs. They go through extensive training and the little thing a kid is going to do to startle a regular dog won’t phase them at all,” Lara said. “No matter what the breed it’s all about how you raise them.”

Marlon added: “It’s all about the amount of care you put into these dogs. We are dogs. We live and breath this world every single day. My hope is that we can stop ignorance and change people’s minds about pit bulls in a positive way with all this attention.”

Hulk is considered an important member of the family, Marlon said, adding that he would never consider selling the huge dog, no matter the price.

At only 18 months this gentle giant is technically still and puppy and is likely to get even bigger.
