Creating fake photos and unleashing them so that they become viral is an art not many can master.

However, when it comes to animals, the recipe is simple. Make them as big as possible, and folks will lose their minds on command.

That was the case with the photo of Hercules, the mutt crowned as the world’s biggest dog. Internet users just couldn’t contain themselves from falling for the old trick.

Soon enough, the story was on everyone’s lips. There are indeed some larger dog breeds, but nothing goes that far. Would you keep such a monster as a pet?
