Is my Pitbull a Bully or my Bully a Pitbull? Aren't we the SAME?

Have you noticed how many dog experts are around us? Well, this will make more sense next time you hear someone scream PITBULL at any dog with cropped ears.


This statement couldn't farther from the truth. Often a huge topic of discussion, the American Bully although similar is NOT a Pitbull. Bellow we will point out characteristics that best represent the American Bully Breed along with comparable to its close/distant cousin the America Pitbull Terrier.


The American Bully is referred to as a designer/hybrid dog breed. One that was started in the 80's going into the 90's with the objective of a family companion. Took decades to achieve what today is known as one of the fastest growing popular breeds. Although there are still differences in bloodlines and size. The goal has remained the same and simple, create a dog that is wonderful with family and kids while maintaining a rugged, tough, thick, muscular, and large appearance that will keep all intruders away. All this while smothering your loved ones and taking ownership of what was once your couch.


The APBT (American Pitbull Terrier) is one beautiful dog that is very misunderstood and repeatedly place under the wrong care and use for illegal activities. You see, the APBT are fun-loving companions, gentle and patient. Before you raise your eyebrows, roll your eyes or smirk just know data doesn't lie. In temperament tests operated by the American Temperament pit bulls were rated the second-most tolerant. The most tolerant dog was the Golden Retriever, and the least tolerant was the Chihuahua. It has been said that pit bulls have the most powerful bite among dog breeds. This has made people wary of their temperament, but the statement is far from reality. The dog with the most powerful bite is actually the Rottweiler.


Truth is that there has been books written on both breeds and we can go on for days. But for comparison purposes we have made a small chart you can reference bellow to better understand their differences and common ground. This will help you make your own educated judgement next time you encounter one of these wonderful dogs. Understand, that bad dogs don't exist. It's more the lack of knowledge and uneducated owners that give these animals a bad reputation. Perhaps next time you're in the market for a puppy these might actually be an option.
