Hulk the famous pitbull guard dog is now a dad.

The 175-pound dog, who is worth a whopping $500,00 thanks to his size and guarding skills, recently welcomed a litter of eight puppies, which is estimated at another $500,000 combined. In the video above, by Barcroft TV Hulk's human family and Dark Dynasty K9s owners Marlon and Lisa Grennan say one of the pups might even rival his massive dad's size when he gets older.

"Their papa isn't a legend for no reason but the potential to have another record-breaking world famous dog amongst his puppies is definitely there," Marlon tells Barcroft TV.

Like Hulk, his puppies will be trained as protection dogs by Marlon and Lisa. And most of the dogs have already been sold. According to Marlon, Hulk's puppies have previously been sold for $30,000, simply because of their relation to Hulk, but once trained, their value skyrockets to more than $55,000.

While many still believe that pitbulls are dangerous dogs, the Grennans and many other dog lovers are quick to point out that like people, dogs are individuals who will respond to how they are treated.

"Hulk is a gentle giant and a great father. He will think nothing of laying down and licking his young puppies and is very gentle with them. He is an awesome dad."
