What are the temperaments on these dogs anyway, I haven't really read up on them much.
I agree that they look odd, Somewhat disproportionate. And the fact that they even state "...our pups are close to standard..."
I personally believe that anyone who is breeding anything out of the standard is taking the breed in the wrong direction.
I've heard that many of the "bully" dogs have a good amount of bulldog and other breeds in it. Why is this so different from the people who mix a Labrador with a Poodle to make a labradoodle? Or the Chorkies? Chiweenies? And all the other "designer" dogs?
I understand that nearly all breeds have mixed blood in them from way back when, But the interbreeding of different breeds back in the day was done for a purpose, Whether it was hunting, ratting, bull baiting, guarding, Etc...They were bred for a purpose.
What purpose does a shorter, less athletic version of a pit bull have?
As for temperament, I cannot speak from personal experience, But I have friends who have bully type dogs...They are not HA, but are SUPER DA. They are still real good with humans, But they don't interact as well with children (not aggressive towards them, Just not as friendly and nurturing as family raised APBT
