    "Pocket Pits"

    Alright, sorry about the last thread guys....... I'm not tring to start another aguement, but what about this question........

    Do you the "Pocket Pits" Should be consider as a breed of their own????

    Considering the APBT standard WANTS these dogs to weigh in the 30 lb range, I'm trying to figure out why a properly bred APBT would be considered a "pocket pit."

    People are just so used to seeing grossly oversized dogs labeled as "pit bulls" that when they see a properly bred dog they think it must be some midget mixed breed.

    A 30-pound APBT is an APBT. Period.

    A Pocket Pit or a Pocket Bully?

    I am going to assume you mean Pocket Bully, since, you put it in the Ambully section.

    Mia, here is an example of a Pocket Bully.

    As long as they are classified as Ambully, Pocket Bullies, which the dog above is classified as that, then I guess that is up to them. I don't know enough about them. I don't know if there are any real health problems or anything. If there are some major health problem generated, because of it, then I think they should rethink it.

    If I read the ABKC site correctly, it's not a separate breed, but a different "type" of Ambully.

    That's the impression I got, like the standard/miniature/toy versions you see in some breeds (i.e. poodles.)

    There's no such thing as a pocket pit. There is no weight range for a dog bred to standard, IMO. And before I get jumped on about that, I'm talking about the standard for a working dog, bred for performance. Sometimes you'll get bigger, sometimes smaller, but generally they should be within 30-60 lbs.

    Really? Seems like a pretty good example of what an AmBully is. Structurally, it has straight legs, seems to be put together nicely. But it's not the athlete the APBT, nor is it meant to be.

    I agree with Pipbull, it looks like a pretty well put together AmBully for what the ABKC is looking for.

    As far as the pocket AmBullies, like others have said, the ABKC has different types. I don't really agree with it though 'cause there's already enough confusion.

    And I forgive ya about last thread Gerald, it's no biggie :).

    It looks like it was wagging its tail, so, it looks docked, but isn't. It looks like the tail is behind there.

    Ya, I would say probably wagging, but it may have a kinked tail.

    OMG. I couldn't make it past the first 12 seconds before wanting to vomit my breakfast all over the keyboard. I don't even know what to say other than that mankind has sunk to a new low in his quest for making money off of freaks.

    That dog reminds me of a basset hound.

    I don't really like American Bullies.

    Though I own an AmBully, I don't care for most of them and the Pocket Bullies look horrible to me.

    Please keep in mind. This is the Ambully section. If you disagree with the Ambully and just want to bash the Ambully, then please refrain from posting. If you have something to add, as constructive criticism, please feel free to add to the discussion.
