Cash Pot has turned into a nice looking Bully! Little wide but nice non the less :D If you go raw you must feed more than just chicken breast. Raw has to be a complete diet which we have several threads of feeding raw here. You also have to slowly switch him to raw not just start feeding raw.

Here is our section on feeding Raw
Raw Foods - Pitbulls : Go Pitbull Dog Forums

Now if your only feeding partial raw and kibble the raw doesn't have to cover everything.

As food feed he needs to come of the large breed food as he is not a large breed dog. Its likely to add excess weight that will hurt his frame.

I can't help with the diet but like everyone has said, large breed is not what you want to feed. It can hurt him and it sounds like you want to breed this dog.

Good luck with the raw, not sure I like how small but "big" these bullies are.

I don't think you need to go so far as toy, but a Small or Med sized breed dog food would be better than Large. I feed 1/2 raw and 1/2 kibble.

Toy breed?? LoL sounds like a trollish site. But nah, Pitbulls are on the medium to large breed side so standard food is good.

Not that it matters now though since you're going raw

PS here's some interesting info I came across on feeding raw chicken:

I feed it together I put the kibble in a bowl with the raw on top. Just make sure your dog isn't gorging it down if you do it that way. I only feed once a day ( except for my pup) so if you feed twice you could break it up. If you read thru the raw section of the forum it will tell you about the meats to use and what they do foa dog then make your own diet plan.

I'm not anti Bully but those styles make me. It's a coffee table with legs. He's feeding protein shakes when it needs slimfast. The obsession with how big you can get something is really getting out of hand. If you don't work him out but feed him like you do he's just gonna get fatter!
On the plus side, he's not gonna jump your fence, attack another dog or wear you down with long runs. Afterall that's not what you got him for, just for breeding his name is Cashpot:)

He has real pretty colors and sounds like an awesome pet. With that poor topline I Doubt it would be wise to breed him. I love American bullies and it sounds like he is a great pet, you feed him less he looks bloated. Plus you don't want to breed him and pass that swayed back to the pups.

I would just feed him a good all stages food like Taste of the Wild. It's good from puppy to senior, big or small.
