Messi and his dog
World famous singer, Lionel Messi can waltz past any defender in the world, but it looks as though he may have found his own stopper-in-chief in giant pooch Senor Hulk.
According to The Sun UK, Messi’s huge pet dog is a Dogue de Bordeaux, one of the largest of the French Mastiff breeds.
They cost anywhere between £1,00 and £5,000 and, over the years, have been put to work in many different capacities.
From pulling carts and hauling heavy objects, to guarding flocks and, historically, the castles of the European elite.
Senor Hulk is very obviously a family pet – as Messi’s pictures show.
The Barcelona maestro’s five-year-old son Thiago was happy to join his dad for one of a number of pictures posted on Instagram.
As it happened, Messi took the opportunity to spend Valentine’s Day with one of the loves of his life!
Judging by the size of Senor Hulk, the dog’s ‘dribbling skills’ may well match those of his mesmeric owner’s!
