In November of 2013 we lost our 8 year old dog to cancer of the spleen. It was very sudden and without any warning signs/symptoms. My kids (6 year old twins) are devastated and being that we are diehard dog lovers, our house just isn't a home without a dog. I have been researching many, many different kennels and all I see are breeders bragging about the size of their dogs, the size of their heads, etc...and barely anything on temperament and health. I do not want a short dog that can't move because my kids and I are athletic and need a dog that will go swimming with us, walking, play ball, frisbee...you get the idea. By accident I came across a kennel called "Dark Knight American Bullies"
Home - Dark Knight American Bullies and I love the look of their dogs and how this kennel presents themselves. I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this kennel/done business with them? I am looking for a Bully that will be strictly a pet (I am not interested in breeding or showing). Or if anyone can recommend any kennels that would be great too. Thank you for your time.

I'm no American bully expert but those actually look like decent dogs! And I like that the breeders health test their dogs. I'm hoping that some folks that know bullies can weigh in and help you out further.

The look like great dogs. Most bullies come with a hefty price tag though. You may be able to inquire about pet quality dogs. I'm just not sure I'd spend that kind of cash on a bully I wasn't intending to show our compete with when there are a ton of bully-like dogs in shelters.

I don't know what kind of dog you had before, but if you need a dog that can do all those things, be very careful where you go. So many individuals of the different bull breeds are way overdone and easily overheat. Also, I highly recommend visiting any kennel you are seriously considering and seeing the premises and dogs in person. Or, sending a trusted, knowledgeable individual.

There is so much "hype" and slick advertising when it comes to these breeds, that I think you have to be very careful.
