American Bully

Well then some of the best bandogs in the country that are being produced by Am Bully foundation didn't happen, lol. I agree most are ridiculous, but I know a few lines that have stayed the course from their original purpose. I have worked some personally. I have also heard some remarkable anecdotes about their feats. IMO, these are Am Bullies, not those pseudo EBs.

    • Most Bullies are indeed junk, but don't right off the possibility just because most can't deliver. Most Neapolitans can't deliver on the breed's hype and history IMO, but I am still open to the idea. I may personally prefer a more well rounded athlete and more drive than most bullies could ever dream of having, but that doesn't mean that all of them are junk. I have seen a rare few that weren't all bad and that had SOME glimmer of hope. Unfortunately, the biggest problem is the people involved. Most people that THINK their dogs will protect really don't have any idea...so this means one would have to test the dogs themself. Also, let's not forget that Lucero's Jaws actually came from an unregistered AmStaff...which one could argue to be very similar to the larger and taller "bullies." The worst ones are going to be the ones that are overdone and short. A thick dog though can be hard to hurt, as they can be rather durable.
      • cawkazn, yes, i often go to angeles crest national forest. that is the best spot for remote hikes that is near LA, only 30 minutes drive. i've also been in your San Bernardino mountains very often, and waiting for my girl to get older before taking her there. i'll check google maps and see how it works. thanks
        • This link gives several of the reasons I'm not a fan of the American Bully. Too many dumbasses that have no idea what they're doing breeding them... http://www.workingpitbull.com/BuyerBeware.html
          • [quote1299471485=davidfitness83] My dog would be considered xxl due to this specifications, most of his siblings are standard bullies. However he is pretty tall, I think he has a slight ressamblance to a mastiff but like I said earlier all the dogs in his pedigree are show dogs therefore limiting his ability. [/quote1299471485] i understand what you are saying and agree with you but i wouldnt cut him short just because of that. if you tested him out and he did his job, regardless of breed or pedigree, if the dog is doing his job, hes doing his job.

[/quote1299471485] I have tested him in a way, he doesn't have a mouth to tug. Maybe the dog respects me too much but he lacks biting power. The dog doesn't have great stamina and he is also not the most agile dog. I didn't have a decoy come out and try to attack me to see if he can do the job. BUt from simple observation on basic acitivities I don't think he qualifies for a good working. I also got his hips tested and they did not score so well, he is more of a great beast friend household pet who looks intimidating but that cannot excel if I needed him to lol We love him and that's all that matters, but he is no working dog and I have yet to see an American Bully built to the ABKC standard that can perform as well as a working mastiff and bullbreed cross. I love the American BUlly for what they are, great companions and great pets. If I need a dog to deter intruders and protect me from a wild beast I am not going to count on my dog to do that job lol i understand what you are saying and agree with you but i wouldnt cut him short just because of that. if you tested him out and he did his job, regardless of breed or pedigree, if the dog is doing his job, hes doing his job.

                • I didn't have a decoy come out and try to attack me to see if he can do the job I have always wanted to do that, like just have a guy in a full suit break into the yard, and see what they would do. i know they bark their ass off on the otherside of the fence but if someone came in would they actually bite, or just jump around and bark? a friend of mine has 2 dogs, 1 is a xl bully, and the other is an apbt. I dont know exactly what breeds are in them as they were both strays that he found. anyways, he has never taught them any protection work etc. and the dogs are only about a yr old. some one broke into his yard and both dogs attacked, he heard some noise went outside, yelled at his dogs to stop and the man ran off.
                  • [quote1299554163=Castanha] to answer your question cawkazn, i am located in Los Angeles. I too love to take my dog to the most remote locations and let her be free. the desert is great for that, so are the mountains. With my previous dog, I have been on 10-12 hours hikes in great locations where nobody was around. When my current puppy reaches the right age, we will start doing does long hikes again. So, please feel free to let me know of some remote trails you may know of. Thanks. [/quote1299554163] i heard san pedro has some hiking areas by the beach?
                      • I know the owner of both dogs, I personally talk to her on another board. She is finding an avenue to give her dogs a workout. Knuckles and Victor are some really nice looking dogs, Knuckles is my favorite XXL in the Bully world. I can ask her if you hav any questions about her dogs, I think she does this with her dogs more as a game than reallistically hoping that her dogs will do something.
                        • very athletic bully, first part of the vid is kinda lame but at 46 seconds in, and also at 1:20. http://www.thebullyhouse.net/kanospage.html the dog is bully, but correctly built. 90 lbs. i would like to see bullies headed this way.
                          • good point
                            • What do you meant they are going to break some teeth?
