How the ‘strongest’ dog in the world Wendy has a ‘double muscle’ mutation that gives her 24 packs and makes her twice as big as usual

The bulging dog that is said to be the “healthiest” pup in the world was born with a genetic mutation that makes her 24-pack and muscular like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

But like The Terminator star, Wendy the whippet is a gentle giant.

Born with a rare genetic mutation, Wendy is twice the size of her canine companions.

Her owner, Ingrid Hansen, bought her from a Shawnigan Lake rancher when she was 8 years old and lived her whole life on a farm in Victoria, Canada, until her death in 2017.

She’s only 14 years old, but already has an interesting life, coming to America to appear on television on shows like the Today Show.

Her Wendy’s is built similarly to her counterparts, but her exterior is nothing short of great.

With muscular shoulders with a thick neck and strong hind legs, Wendy weighs 27 kg.

Research by the National Institutes of Health has found that horses with a single defective copy of the myostatin gene increase muscle mass, which improves racing performance.

But white horses, like Wendy, who have two mutated copies of the gene have twice as “dual muscles”.

She weighs twice the weight of a normal white dog, but has the same height and narrow head.

Wendy made international headlines in 2007 when her muscular figure was likened to the Arnold Schwarzenegger of dogs.

At the time, Ingrid said Wendy may look like the Terminator Star, but similarly, is a gentle giant.

She told the Daily Mail: “She didn’t know she had a genetic defect. She could give you a nasty lick, that’s all.

“She’s healthy and happy. That’s all that matters.”

Wendy enjoyed the limelight, appearing on television shows including Animal Planet Most Outrageous Animals, Weird True and Freaky, and National Geographic Wild.

Ingrid said to Vancouver Sun: “Wendy doesn’t care whatever people are filming her,”

“If she wants to do something, she will. Otherwise, she will just sit or look away. She has her own personality and life goes by her rules, not anyone else’s.”

Wendy was put to sleep in 2017, when Ingrid, a registered veterinary technician, said it was time to make sure her quality of life didn’t deteriorate when she got sick.

Her special pet lost muscle, couldn’t eat in the house and collapsed when trying to keep up with other dogs.

It was an emotional time when she lost her special pet.

She said: “It is difficult to make a decision and to lose a pet, especially one as kind and sweet as Wendy.

“I wanted her to go while she was still happy enough, not when she was completely in pain and it was a very difficult decision to make.”
