My boy will be turning two in November. He's got an incredible personality and so much character. It's a huge change from having other bull breeds. He has 0 aggression and the only drive he has is for fetch and tug. I do miss my old bulls still. Geach is better suited to my lazy lifestyle though.

Mac, just saw Geach's pictures and I'm laughing as I type. Absolutely love that mug. Showed the pics to Donna and her remark was " he is absolutely adorable". My laughter of course is at the wardrobe you have accumulated for him. Ecko boy would be embarrassed for him, :ROFLMAO:
In all seriousness, he is stunning. Hard to believe that he's 2 already. Any new thoughts on showing him?
Appreciate the pictures and thoroughly enjoyed them. 馃挆

Ecko had 5 coats, 3 sweaters, and a handful of 5T shirts from the kids section. He would probably have been jealous of Geach's wardrobe. LOL! He's turned into a pretty popular guy, taking after his late pack mate. A Bark Bar opened up near me called Ruff Houz Bark Park and Bar. They use him as the mascot even though the owner has three gorgeous huskies.
Aaaaalmost two. So close he thinks he's grown. LOL!

I had his breathing assessed and they advised he needed BOAS surgery. They opened up his stenotic nares, shortened his VERY elongated palate, and removed 2 saccules that had inverted from the pressure of not being able to breathe properly. I went ahead and had him neutered at the same time. He's an incredible dog, but I think he has more negatives to bring to the breeding pool then positives. Of course no balls means no shows, but my work schedule has made showing all but impossible anyways. He travels with me all over FL though. Hotel folks always love him and we've hit at least half the bark parks in FL so far. I expect we'll have them all visited by the end of the year. LOL

I knew he had the BOAS surgery but obviously didn't know that he was neutered at the same time. Poor boy had to hurt from one end to the other.
It is easy to understand why he is so popular and an honorary mascot of the Ruff Houz Bark Park and Bar, love the name. Fingers crossed he stays structurally solid and doesn't get injured trying on his newest outfit. ;)

Aside from his breathing he hasn't shown signs of any future issues. So far anyways. He recovered incredibly fast from his surgeries. He didn't even know his balls were gone. LOL!
He's just so darn cute, it's hard not to fur mommy the heck out of him. So when I find something that will actually fit him and his odd shape, I buy it. This dog has a 21" chest and a 17" neck. But his back is only 13" long. LOL!

Geach is fantastic! I was not at all interested in Shorties when I started looking at dogs but man my little Shorty has won me over. Sorry to read that some of the health issues showed up for Geach. I am really hopeful I don't run into issues with Spider but it will be what it will be. As you mentioned, they're nice for a little bit more relaxed lifestyle. I was eyeballing some staffies and apbt, but I think my little "sport dog lite" is a perfect fit. Geach looks very dapper in his tie. Spider is jealous - she only has a nice collar and a nice weightpull harness. And bravo on finding things that fit. These bodies are impossible. Finding a running harness that worked was torture.

Spider has that NHB buff body for sure!
Geach will go all day, or nap all day. The perfect level for me. I tried Staffordshire Bull Terriers, I've had American Bullies, Shorty Bulls are my breed of choice. I'm scooping up another puppy in two Saturdays. This one is in Florida where I am.
I just looked at Eris Insta. You have Geach's niece. Welcome to the NHB family!! Minion brought longer muzzles to the table in that breeding. I can see it in your girl. So I think you'll be OK and not have much to worry about in the way of breathing for her.

I hope you'll be posting pic of the new baby! Can't wait!!
I will for sure. I'm scooping him up next Saturday and I have some pre crop pics but his ears are all over the place. He gets cropped next week and his last breeder vax. I'll be posting as soon as I have him in my possession. LOL
