    So are they bullies now......... Hell theres plenty dogs that cant walk blocks without panting hell in 85 to 90 degree heat I cant walk blocks without panting lol... and hell I fight fires for a hobby...... You wouldn't believe the number apbt I seen panting at the last APBA not because they was out of shape hell maybe cause they are a damn dog. Thats what dogs do yea to cool them self of but, hell I seen APBT And Bullies barking and then panting. Ok they pant after walking. How is that not health some people and animals get hot faster ......ok it's normal

    Re-read what I posted. I said that I have seen them only be able walk a block as in a singular street block before it is panting like crazy. That is not healthy.

    Most larger weight bred dogs do that Mastiffs, Dane's, Bulldogs all bulldogs, And most have a fairly health longer dog life not as long as apbt and amstaffs and labs and ret. and that nature dog. They are more lean and naturally fit.

    I disagree that it has to do with "larger weight" dogs. Those bullies are more than likely mixed with EBs which would contribute to the breath issues.

    Thats your opinion your entitled to it. I don't disagree I am just looking on both sides. (OPEN MINDED) Thats a yes that I think some people take a short cut and mix eb with them. But, no I don't think thats why they breath like that they don't have a flat nose lol.....

    Actually a lot of them have much shorter muzzles. Look at the dogs in the videos. Amstaffs and APBTs don't have that short of muzzles so I very highly doubt that they contributed to the breeding issues.

    A lot of gator apbt do I know most of my redboy jocko dogs did have around 2-3 inch muzzles. From my understanding thats why those two was one had wind other had bite.

    So you think there isn't health problems that come with easty westy feet, bowed legs andbeing over weight?

    Next time you go to the vet. Ask them if there is any health problems that come with those things. I bet you will be surprised.

    Not saying that being over weight is a issue. But, what weight is set for those standards. And no easty westy don't mean the dog is unhealthy. Hell show me a dog with no gene. health issues.

    So walk around for the rest of your life with your feet pointed out to either side and see if you remain in agreement with the above statement.

    You'll have feet,ankle,knee and back issues before long,which would likely change your opinion.

    Look at your average marthon runners feet they are easty westy. Look at your average sprinter they are pigeon toed not everyone feet is straight as a arrow. It's a now fact that most of today athletics are pigeon toed. Not, saying a bully is athletic but, am proving the point feet don't make you unhealthy

    You're not proving any point,well maybe one.

    You don't know that any of these people have no long term effects because of these conditions.They may be able to perform in spite of these conditions,it's not the same as being free of complications.

    Marathon runners suffer a plethora of problems due to the stress placed on their bodies.Sprinters pull/tear muscles and tear/rupture ligaments regularly.They are not free from injury.

    All you have named don't come in relations to a foot or feet that is what we are talking about now. right?

    If your feet are misaligned,it effects other areas of the body.Consult with any physician or vet for confirmation of this if you feel the need.

    Like I said above,walk around with your feet pointed out to either side and see if it has no effect.

    The degree to which the feet are turned out will effect the severity of any effects.

    skylar - I severely sprained my ankles several years ago. So I compensated for the way I walked so that my ankle wouldn't hurt even after it healed - basically the only comfortable way I can walk is with my foot pointed slightly out. Well over time that caused my knee cap to till outward and has messed up the ligaments in my knee. I'm in constant pain with my knee which if full of fluid. And when I spend a lot of time on my feet - which I do with my job - it causes my whole body to hurt. It starts to effect my working ability as the day goes on - I start to slow down and really start hurting. My doctors say there isn't much they can do until I need a knee replacement and that I will most likely start developing arthritis with in the next few years - I'm only 21. I'm also predisposed with joint issues thanks to my parents so it is genetic. So don't sit there and tell me that this isn't a health issue and that it doesn't cause long term effects.

    These dogs are going to suffer from these health issues/defects whether you believe it or not.

    Thats one person out of how many I have a lis frac fracture and it doesnt affect nothing else on me but, my foot. I played football 10 years out my life and basketball all my life started when I was 6 and played ever since numerous sprains and pulled muscles and still dosent affect nothing. Got an appointment today with a foot spec. to recheck my lis frac and healing over the past year. Will bring up the question.
