Pictures can be very deceiving especially when a dog is over fed and in terrible condition. Gotty was infact ( well IMO) an Amstaff and not a bully regardless of the reputation that was made due to his owners wanting to bank on the image of a huge dog. Gotty is not different than any Gaff dog in bone structure and happened to be bred to many many Bully female to create a bully line.However when bred to a quality female he produced some excellent UKC style dogs.
Gotty himself before the idea of the bully fad took off
If I wanted to promote my dogs as American Bullies I could show off pictures that where bad angles or posture and misrepresentations of what my dogs look like like this one.
Or I could use a photo from the same day that looks like this and say APBT
Now its anyone opinion on what my dogs are but it the point of how photos and posture can very much misrepresent a dog as well as if the dog is lacking in conditioning or even overweight.
