My son is thinking of getting an American Pocket Bully. This is after owning an American Staffordshire Terrier who is probably going to have to be PTS after biting his wife. He was being managed for his DA and HA tendencies but this time he bit one of his family. Anyhow, my son wants to get another dog if this is what he has to do. He was talking about the Pocket Bully. I am not familiar with the breed. I know he wants a dog that he can take out and about without worrying, but not a dog that requires a lot of exercise. Has to be good with kids too. Any opinions?

Maybe stay away from the "bully dog" defined breeds altogether. Just a thought. WHY so set on a breed that is quite likely to have some issues of perception if nothing else?

Is there some underlying reason for choosing a breed that is universally distrusted? There are plenty of mixed breeds or even pure bred dogs that do NOT have associated problems with them.

If your son is really set on getting a breed that is tagged with issues, he should consider going to the pound and saving a dog that is sure to be put to death and training it as a therapy dog or other service that benefits not only the community, but the overall reputation of the breed.

No offense. But it sounds as if your son and his family are not an appropriate home for a bully breed. Pocket or not.

As for the pocket bully schtick. I would stay so far away from them. Would you get a pocket GSD? No.

If he wants a smaller dog, there are plenty of wonderful family dogs. PWD, Labrador, NSDTR. That are less likely to have the types of issues your son was unable to work with in his current dog.

The AmBully is less DA than an APBT. Properly bred they should NEVER be HA. They are good with kids but that goes back to finding one from a very responsible breeder. They do need a bit of exercise, not as much as the APBT but they are no couch potatoes. Since he's had problems before he really needs to do some research before he gets one of these dogs again, there are a lot of aggressive AmBullies with very poor body structure out there, more than the good ones. At the bottom of the index page there is a link to GoPitbull dog forums you may be able to get better more detailed information there than here. :) Good luck!

There are different classes of AmBully, pocket would not be my first choice.

I don't know what a pocket bully is, but it sounds more like a marketing ploy than a real breed with responsible breeders.
Why not get a staffordshire bull terrier. I know several in agility and they are all the happiest, friendliest dogs with people and other dogs.

An American Bully is the shorter and stouter version of an APBT, it's still in development I think there's actually more than one standard for them. The classes if I remember correctly are small medium large xxl and extreme.

Sounds to me like another byb made up "breed" if he wants another pit research a real APBT breeder that breeds for temperament, not size or color. I love bully breeds and mine have never shown any human aggression at all.

Pocket Bully
This is an amendment to the basic standard which a Pocket Bully is determined by its adult height.


* Males under 17″ at the withers.

Pocket Bully variety is simply shorter than the Standard American Bully. Aside from this difference, the Pocket Bully variety exhibits the same breed type and follows the same standard as the Standard American Bully.

So if this was someone who said their german shepherd was being put down for biting his wife would you say the same? Stay away from ALL german shepherds?

A well bred pit bull should NEVER how human aggression.

The problem is the same we have with GSDs. BAck yard breeders.

There are legitimate, responsible and ethical pit bull breeders out there. Find one.

It's a mutt. Mixed bully breeds put together. APBT, corsos or neos for the Xl, staffies, even English bulldogs for the little guys etc. it's like the bandog. And it's ruining the dogs. Most of these people have no clue what they are doing. Are throwing dogs together based off of size or color. This kind of crap killed my dog. (Who was a papered (ukc aka crap) pit bull.) he was enormous. Beautiful. Amazing with kids. And had severe hip dysphasia an the most severe allergies I've ever seen in a dog. It even amazed our dermatologist.

Personally i would go look for a pit bull breeder breeding mostly red nosed lines that actually work their pits. And ones you can see and pet! The parents.

I did say it's in development, and that there are way more bad ones than good. A lot of dog breeds came about by mixing dogs so yes it is a mutt technically. You are right Capone it may be better and easier to find a properly bred APBT than AmBully, if your son really wants a sound, healthy AmBully he may be looking for a very long time.

My son likes stronger breeds. He would love a GSD but knows he does not have the time to exercise properly. His current dog was from a byb...only 6 weeks old when he got him. He doesn't want to make that mistake again.

He wouldn't have time to train a dog for therapy etc. He would like a dog that doesn't require a lot of exercise. He has young children and both my son and his wife work. Fortunately on opposite schedules so someone would be home most of the time. And I live down the road so I wouldn't mind helping out.

My only requirement is a dog that my Stella can play with....

APBT are usually DA. Very hard to find one that's not, and even if you do theres no guarantee it will stay that way.

How about an English Bulldog. They don't need much exercise, have good temperaments, and are "manly".

So if this was someone who said their german shepherd was being put down for biting his wife would you say the same? Stay away from ALL german shepherds?

A well bred pit bull should NEVER how human aggression.

The problem is the same we have with GSDs. BAck yard breeders.

There are legitimate, responsible and ethical pit bull breeders out there. Find one.
Find ONE! That seems to be the biggest problem for all APB onwers out there. Find a Well bred PB. There are WAY too many BYB... Do I think there are fewer GSD's ending up this way? No... FINDING a legitimate APB breeder is VERY difficult. Not so with GSD's or other breeds.

The BYB issue is prevalent among ALL BREEDS. I am Only saying that if one is concerned about bully breed HA issues, staying away from certain traits in breeds is prudent. If I had been concerned about these issues, I would have gotten a tortoise. Obviously, I am not afraid of certain issues...

why financially support english bulldog breeders as suggested - they are collectively scum - it is now widespread that the breed is effectively no longer free breathers, free breeders or free whelpers, it would be an act of mercy to exterminate the entire breed.

strange that yr staffy became both dog and handle aggressive and bit yr wife, they are one of two breeds the UKC state as safe with children, not sure what the other breed is but the UKC have hundreds if not thousands of dog breeds and they only state two are safe with kids - yr is DA, HA, bites it own family and is destined to be PTS...one could ask what happened, what did YOU do to end up with a dangerous dog which is one of two breeds deemed blanket statement safe with kids??

I don't own the dog. (not a fan of pits) My son owns him. He has 2 kids and the dog has never done anything to them. Personally, I think the dog just isn't quite right in the head. I think he has a low threshold for excitement/stress and he goes into bite mode. There is no warning....just attack. He has always been aggressive and sketchy. He is fine with me, but even so, I don't trust the dog. He has been managed for 7 years, but biting the hand that feeds you.......?????
