A giant man like this probably has a breed that fits his size, right?

Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson has been the World’s Strongest Man TWICE , in 2014 and 2015. Last year he came in second. But he has been named Iceland’s Strongest Man SIX times in a row and he’s not even 30! His personal record deadlift is almost 1000 lbs, specifically 994 lbs. This 6’9 enormous man weighs 403 lbs – of muscle!

His cheat days look like this. That’s a lot of pizza.

He’s also known for his role on Game of Thrones as Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane. So his size and his role on the show speak for his 757 thousand plus followers on Instagram. But what’s really exciting is his dog!

Are you ready?

His little Pomeranian puppy – Ástríkur aka Asterix! A teeny tiny dog for a giant strongman!

That’s right, 400 lb Thor’s dog of choice is a fluffy 6 lb Pomeranian. And Asterix wins his own competitions. In the 3 to 6 months division, he won first place for best puppy! This family breeds winners of all sizes.

A little water break for Thor and Asterix – it takes a lot of hydration to be number 1! They have quite the adorable relationship.
