    Visual identification is not reliable for guessing breeds, especially often mixed and crossed breeds like the APBT and other bull breeds. Why don't you just post his pedigree?

    Because they are going off of looks. I have had people say he is an apbt, am bully, and even am. Bulldog. Mix or one of the breeds. His blue eyes are also something people say APBT 'S don't have etc.

    If you trust your breeder, I guess I don't see the issue.

    There is no "issue".....I posted to see other opinions on how the dog "looks"...do you have an issue with this post? I don't understand.

    I have no guess as far as what the dog MIGHT be. However, I'm not seeing APBT.

    Post his pedigree, we can't tell you what he is by looking at him and neither can anyone else. The general public has no clue what an APBT looks like so I wouldn't take what they say much to heart.

    Yep. There was a thread last week where the OP posted pics to get guesses (already knowing the dog's pedigree) and was peeved when the dog was called a mix.

    Aw hell, Ill bite.
    The lack of pigment on the nose and eyes is makes him look like an oddball lol. Ive seen APBTs with blue eyes and white faces or even with the same white coat with colored patches but they typically don't lack pigment in that way. Extreme piebald is seen much more frequently in bullies and AmBulldogs.

    His head shape though is what makes me think bully. It looks overdone. Muzzle is a bit short and doesn't line up with the head. The stop is probably more deep and vertical than it should be. JMHO.

    Just a few other pics...

    I appriciate the detailed post.

    I am not someone who gets offended by opinions on my or any other dog. I was honestly and innocently asking for opinions.

    Give or take..he isn't huge, not "bully" except his head IS odd shaped/set lol..imo

    He also has some very excessive flews. You can't even see his lower jaw.
    Even Mayday who was huge and had a massive head did not have that, though, looking at certain pictures he had slight jowls. I think tight lips are important for the breed.

    So give it up. Whats the ped?
