    I just wanted to saw WOW, first off... This is probably the ONLY thread regarding Am Bullies that has stayed 100% decent with no members eating each other (well, except for the idiots who joined from the kennel site posted). I'm proud of y'all! lmao

    texas_dogger.. you have my heart with how you word things! MR. Bonez... you make your case in an excellent way, and I enjoy reading your posts!

    Okay, now that I'm done with THAT... lol

    Personally, I don't see any proportion or good structure in those bullies. Maybe if I really looked at them, and had more pictures of each... but for the most part, I can't get past the short legs supporting huge bodies, huge heads with too short of muzzles, short backs, etc. I HAVE seen some bullies I thought were good looking... just last night, actually. I should have saved some of those kennel sites! Yes, I am a bully breeder website browser lmao I like looking at dogs, and I like keeping up on what people are breeding these days so I can be educated in a discussion like this.

    I don't have a problem with American Bullies. So far, they can breathe (for the most part), and aren't as unhealthy as english bulldogs (yet). But they should NEVER be called APBT!

    I won't say I would NEVER own one.. I have seen some not-quite-so-bully American Bullies hitting a springpole harder than my dog does! But I won't say that I WOULD ever own one either.. with those price tags and people breeding for short, wide, blue dogs - I don't want to get involved in that!

    you continue to throw judgment on others dogs, especially "bullys" and by doing so you open yourself to criticism as well and by looking at the dog in your avatar I would hesitate to call that a "real" APBT (as you say), can you post more pics so we can give an honest evaluation of your dog since you continue to drop the hammer on other peoples dogs. I dont see what would make your dog any closer to true breed standard vs. a bully, their really isnt an in between IMO.

    post more pics

    its only fair

    and What makes you think that? what do you think a real APBT is? All she said was bullies are are not structurally sound. I can't argue with that.

    their are bully owners on this site and she continues to criticize dogs and I couldnt help but notice the dog in her avatar to possibly not look the part of what I consider a real APBT, so it would only be fair for her to open her dogs up for the same criticism as she continues to give

    dish it out, you better be able to take it

    we all have different views of what the standard APBT is, some like bullys and some dont, doesnt mean hers are any close to standard as a bully really

    lets see them

    Well enlighten us please, what is it about her dog that makes you think it is not APBT? and What is your idea of an APBT? The reason people here are fed up with Bullies is because people keep calling them APBT, and they are not. If you like bullies, more power to ya, but call them what they are please. ;)
  8. thats right quit callin them American Pitbull Terriers if your proud of the breed than youd call them what they are you shouldnt be ashamed of your dog cuz i'd bet they are not ashamed of you. but really quit callin them pits[​IMG]

    the point is everyone has a opinion/view of what a real APBT is. The Bully is just as much an APBT as any dog not off pit stock in the eyes of a dogman, you see. So for her or anyone to bash a bully, it just goes round and round

    what makes an "APBT" bred like hers, not off pit stock any better of a pet then a Bully? Isnt that what most people on this forum has these dogs for, as pets? The Bully is a better pet to a bully owner and a dog bred from generic (Non Pit) bloodlines makes a better pet for others

    same sht really
  10. bottom line is an american bully is not an American Pitbull Terrier get over it and start calling them what they are and quit piggy backing on our dogs name

    So you are saying that an American bully, or a mix breed dog of unknown lineage is an APBT? :confused:
  12. No one

    No one Big Dog

  13. im a dog man im not hatin on the hippos and hippo is just what me and partners call them.this is how i feel the bully dont deserve to be called a pit period.im not claming to know it all i know enough too see those are not pits.im thinking real hard about getting a hippo they are some good looking dogs these are the two kennels im lovin right now www.royal pitbull kennels.com & www.suarez bulls kennels.com from suarez i like his pocket bullys.
  14. Thank You very much, i dont have any problem with the breed but every dog breed is unique in its own way a german shepard is not a poodle and a schnauzer is not a lab and An American Pitbull Terrier is not an American Bully and vece verse so call them what they are whats the big deal with that just quit callin them pits thats all

    Just to clarify the terms for people who keep calling them "pits"....bullies ARE "pit bulls". Pit is not a breed, and pit bull is not a breed. APBT's, Am Staffs, Staffy Bulls, American Bullies...ALL PIT BULLS! Just like tree walkers, black and tans, blue ticks, and bassets are all hounds. They're just not all the same hound. Different physique, different purposes, different breeds, same group.

    I agree, Galadriel.

    American Bullies are "pits" and "pit bulls", but they are not APBT. Unfornately, I see the AmBully crowd usually APBT to discribe their dogs now. What heck?!

    reality and standard is dogs bred off straight pit stock are true to standard, they'd have to come from countries where its legal but anyway thats my opinion of an APBT and its cut and dry, no in between

    so a "Bully" and the rest of the "Pet" bred APBT's wether they have block heads and weight 80lbs or could be pointed in UKC, doesnt matter theyre not APBT in MY opinion, same difference

    the point is we all have a different view, so continue to knock Bullys but remember someone else may not think yours are true APBTs either

    I have not seen where anyone has singled out anyones dog it looks to me that its the standards everyone is discussing

    I don't really think anyone is bashing Bullies. They are just saying to call them what they are. My dog Notch isn't an APBT. He's an Amstaff, and I call him an Amstaff, not a APBT. I wouldn't be offered if someone saw Notch, and said, "That's an Amstaff." It's not an insult. It's calling the dog the correct breed. Just like I am sure Purple wouldn't be mad if someone said, "Hey, that's a Bull Terrier." They are all technically "pit bulls", but they aren't all APBTs. Heck, I call Tess an APBT, but she might have something mixed in with her. If someone told me they thought she was a mix. I wouldn't be offended about that, either.

    The dog in my avatar is (was rather) Shaker. He was off of Cold Steel Pit's Gr. Ch. Boogieman and Hogtown Light. Maybe not what you like, but he sure as hell wasn't some 90+ slobbering mastiff who had to take breaks walking next door to the neighbor's house.
