    The terms retriever and Pit Bull are very different.There are several retrievers.There is only one Pit Bull.Retriever is a type,Pit Bull is not.

    The breeds commonly and wrongly lumped under Pit Bull are Bull and Terrier in type.If you want to also include Bulldogs,I would expand that to Bully Breeds.

    I think the distinction is pretty clear.I also agree that those of us that know the difference should make a concerted effort to educate others of said difference(s).I fail to see the logic in accepting the practice of calling something that it is not,let alone doing it myself.

    The AmStaff for example was renamed to get away from the term Pit Bull.It's now lumped back in as a Pit Bull,does that make sense?

    The American Bully moved in a different direction.The founders of the breed wanted to change the look and some of the characteristics.Dave Wilson has flatly said that these dogs are NOT Pit Bulls...why do Bully owners and breeders want so dearly to hang onto that term?It just doesn't make sense.

    I just happen to be a Bully owner as well...

    Never going to happen :lol:

    The pup is really cute, but as the owner of both breeds only one dog in my house is called "pit bull" and that is only in context in whole American Pit Bull Terrier. Mater is an American Bully the term "Pit Bull" is not found anywhere in his breed so why add it....

    American Pit Bull Terrier, Pit Bulls, Pitbulls

    American Bully Information and Pictures, Am Bullies

    Now if you look at these two links you will only see one dog with the term "pit bull" and you will see a huge difference in the description on the two.

    Here is where I stand on the issue and remember I own both breeds....

    The APBT has a history and that history included the "pit" or box as it is called by many. It is a part of who these dogs are and what they have come through and had to endure.

    The AMBully does not share in that history and has no right to share that name. I think for most APBT owners we feel it is an insult to our breed to called a dog such as the AMBully a "pit bull" IMO only one dog has earned that right.

    Now with that said 99.9% of the general public is very uneducated on the matter and as long as us APBT owners do not say anything they will remain in the dark. I do not see it as a bashing session when an APBT owner tells a Bully owner that they do not own a "Pit Bull" I just see it as educating the uneducated and standing up for our breed.

    Now to the OP, you have an American Bully be proud and love him but never call him a "pit Bull" or even a bully Pit, your breed has a name and it is American Bully. It is a very cute AMBully at that. :D Good luck with him/her and make sure to post up pics here so we can watch him/her grow up:sonn_u11:

    I do not believe in the Term African- American. If someone is Here enjoying the freedoms that this country offers and all the other perks of being born here then Be American you do not see German-American Irish-American. do not get into the slave thing I was not part of it and neither were you. But it is a Known Fact that Americans Freed the Slaves. Thru out time countries have enslaved people of all races. That is the Past this is the future.

    I think the term African American is disrespectful to all the soldiers that have fought to give us these freedoms. many have given everything to ensure our freedoms and we need to respect them

    Jsorrow, although we are straying away from topic we are having a civil debate that is somewhat relevant to what the OPs remarks were. I do not have a problem with it.

    IF and thats a big if, it has gottiline blood, she will not "pop" until her later stages in life. Meaning she may look lanky until 1 1/2 - 2 years only when she will start filling out and growing into her height.gotti blood has this effect w/ there dogs

    OK.. about the fat comment... one look at the dam and you can't tell me that that girl won't LOOK half as bully as she does with those superfluous 20-30 pounds on her. So, yeah.. in general, you will improve your chances to have a bullier "pit" by keeping it fat.

    Not at all Xdogs. Personally I have two bullies that are on the leaner side. They still look just as bully as my 70 lb. healthy girls. I think Cleo still looks bully as hell and she is thin and muscular. Take a look at some of our thinner bullies around the bully section and you tell me if they still don't look bully

    I think (and I could be wrong) that she means these dogs in particular, not Ambullies in general.

    This is a good post. I agree if you know the difference than educate as much as you can. To many people think pit bull means huge 100 pound bulky aggressive dogs, when the real APBT is a small terrier human friendly breed. A lot of people don't know the difference between APBTs, AST, Ambullies etc most people just refer to them all as a pit bull and lump them in one sum, when they are actually very different. Pit bull is a specific part of ONE breeds name the american pit bull terrier. I understand some people use it as a genetic term today, however if you know the difference between breeds and know what you have then you should state it. Most people think pit bull is a breed name in itself and have never even heard the name APBT.
