With happiness and the World Cup in Qatar on the horizon, Messi is sure to return home and embrace his 6-year-old dog, Hulk, who has been his unwavering companion.
Lionel Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, has stood by his side since before his rise to fame. They currently have three children: Mateo Messi, Ciro Messi, and Thiago Messi. However, their family is also complete with a pampered pet, and that pet is Hulk, a large Dogue de Bordeaux weighing over 50 kilograms.
Antonela not only gifted Messi with three beautiful and healthy children, but she also introduced Hulk into their lives a few years ago, making him a beloved part of their family.
Among the family pets, the most pampered one is Hulk, the dog Antonela gifted Messi. In January 2016, Messi shared on his Instagram that Hulk, with his lovely green eyes and hefty appearance, would be making his debut. Holding Hulk in his arms, Messi radiates happiness and expresses gratitude to his devoted wife for the thoughtful gift.
“Thank you, my love, for this incredible gift,” he posted on Instagram. “I have a new addition to the family.
Hulk, the 6-year-old dog, is sizable and seems quite strong, truly living up to his name. This implies that he requires a nutritious diet as well as regular exercise.”

In the days leading up to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Messi and his family were concerned because the dog had not accompanied them on the flight, but instead had stayed in Barcelona for medical treatment.
