    They sought out and joined THIS forum for the purpose of down grading APBT's and their owners. There is no law suit to be had here. There is nothing illegal about voicing your preference and it was stated repeatedly by our long standing members that everyone is fee to like what they like.

    i see no hostility here just people excersizing their right of freedog of speech. There is no lawsuit in what the members have said here thats rediculous. To be classified as slander or defamation of character it would have to be false and I havent seen anything false about anything that has been said. Just my opinion.

    I'm not about to get into an argument about whether or not there is in fact a lawsuit here. But I have learned from other forums in the past where they have been threatened due to a member bringing up a kennel for no reason and posting it just so others can belittle it.

    And I also remember that the forum-in itself cannot be sued, it would fall upon the member who started the post, and any negative members since.

    This is why some forums will delete the thread when one like this appears.

    Thnk about it, if you owned a business what would you do if someone just happened to come across it and post it somewhere just to make fun of your product? A product you did not purchase and really have no knowledge of? I know-being a business owner Id sue to crap out of them.

    Really, I could care less, I just wanted to let yall know that I am pretty sure something could be done. And I dont want to see that happen.

    Also, I myself posted a link to a kennel close to home. One that I had first hand witness to-let's say-dispicable conditions. Someone on that site contacted the kennel and directed them to the link. I was found, threatened both physically to me and my family and my dogs- I HAD to start legal proceedings for a restraining order AND was threatened to be sued for even posting the site. Which in turn, have been told that if I would have steered anyone wrong about the kennel since it was registered as a business and they lost money because of me, I would lose.

    It evened out in the end, I dropped it if they did, however there is still things pending towards the person who started it all.

    So, I know alittle about these things from experience.

    Then again, I really dont care would rather not discuss anyones bad breedings or what they are calling them if they own a business and have a kennel. I just tried to let yall know that it just not right.

    i do agree on the 2 breed being different and they should be called different, but you shouldnt say you would NEVER own a bully just b/c of some ignorant persons site and over sized dogs(which i beleive they are exagerating a couple of those dogs weights), there are some really nice looking bullies out there, with great breeders behind them who have their dogs health checked and really stick to their standards (ABKC) They are proportioned well and even participate in things like weight competitions and have Canine Good Citizenship. AM. Bullies if bred correctly are supposed to be well known for their lovable personalities with all living things, people and pets alike, and they still have a great work drive. if you like i can show you a couple of kennels that do have some great looking and cared for american bullies. :) i am a proud owner of both the American Pit Bull Terrier and the American Bully, and i love both, there are differences and their are similarities, but something i dont agree on about these Am.Bullys is being able to be called American Pit Bull Terriers and the fact that i have seen some sold anywhere between 2000 to 10,000 for a pup, which is ludacris, NO DOG should be sold for that much when there are people in this world that are starving, i really wish the world would wake up and realize whats really important in our lives.

    Can you name 2 Am Bully kennels such as the one you describe that have a website as proof? Proportionate and bully is a oxymoron imo. I am curious how you could consider anyone that breeds the dogs credible and in it for the greater good. Not saying you a re wrong although i personally believe you are. I however do commend you on calling them what they are.

    Good post Mr. Bonez. My point on starting this thread was not to point out 1 particular kennel. (From here on out in my post "THEY" is generalized not one kennel over another) It was just frustration with how much the dogs are being sold for how they market the dogs. I do not have a problem with American Bullies but I did not choose to get one I picked APBT after past experiences with them. Kennels should just call the dogs what they are dont be ashamed of what the breed is alot of the sites use the breed name interchagabley (SPELLING) if someone is not sure about the breed or researching which breed to get and they go on the site for information its not doing a new person to the breed any justice to not give facts about the breed. Educate prospective puppy buyers correctly.

    man this just aint my day, lol, the one site i cannot get to pull up and i just looked at it a couple of weeks ago, but i did find a pic of one of their Bullies...and a few pics of some other Am Bullies who IMO look great.
    this is a pic of that male of the site i cannot get to work...
    and here are a few more....
    This guy is a UKC UWPCH and i "THINK" a show CH as well.

    here is a nice female
    although i know most APBT fans will think she is fat, lol but she is a very pretty girl imo.

    and last but not least is "Nemesis" you can see him and some more real nice IMO proportioned AM.bullies @ www.prattspits.com (although i am not 100% if they refer to them as bullies or pits on the site, i will go check, i just remember they have nice dogs.)

    Well I hope they call them what they are, because they are NOT APBT.
  14. MR.Bonez

    MR.Bonez Little Dog

    hmm well i went back and checked, they refer to them as pits (prattspits.com) not all dogs pictured above are from there) and they also refer to them as clean bullies. not once do they call them American Pit Bull Terriers from what i see though.

    The second one is the only one I see that's well put together from a medical standpoint.
    I'm starting to feel like a broken record, but all those sway backs, bowed legs, and disproportionately huge heads are BAD for the dogs' over all well being. Joint, back, and neck problems abound. That last dog is muscular, but it's like body builder muscular, not athletic. That much bulk is also bad on the skeletal system.
    That breed is the trend right now, and the majority of people breeding them are doing so for the sole purpose of making a few quick bucks without a care in the world about what kind of dogs the buyers will end up with in the long run.

    Again, I don't fault the dogs. They didn't do this to themselves, I fault the people breeding and not caring. For all of the American Bully lovers, LOVE ON! But don't let people make you believe these are American Pit Bull Terriers. Love them for what they actually are, and call them that.

    And for the record, yes I DID own one. I had to have her put down at 8 months for human aggression.

    i will post up a few more, ones that IMO are proportioned and are in the ABKC standard. and on those dogs above i dont see a single one with a sway back or bowed legs, although i CAN post a few that would really freak you out LOL if you think these guys are bad off,(ones that i even cringe when i see them and i love both APBTS and Bullys) and i would say that is just your opinion against them since you are an avid APBT lover. And their heads are not huge if their body/neck is big enough to fit it, in these dogs case they are well fit to handle their structures. And nemesis' thick bone i am sure can handle his muscles, and i wont take your side or the person who owns him on the fact that he is a body builder or an athelete b/c i dont know. lol.
    I do agree with you that it is completley WRONG for people to be breeding and selling ANY breed of dog for OUTRAGEOUS amounts of money, (i stated that earlier) especially since there are HUMAN BEINGS in this world that are starving and suffering, not to mention other animals that are in shelters in need of a loving home, and i also agree they need to stick by their breeds real name the AM Bully and the fact that these dogs are going through some popular trend. (people IMO are weird cattle like creatures that follow other peoples interest to much instead of following their own)(not saying that about anyone in general just people in general)

    and i am sorry to hear about the one you had to put down, where did you get her from?
