We have a mixture at the moment and each one is different. The bullbreeds are certainly different to the mastiff, the mastiff is much smarter and more complex. I grew up with gundogs, flat coated retrivers and they were a walk in the park compared to the bullbreeds but wouldnt change them for the world. I quite enjoy the challenge.
my dad had a pitbull when i was born, amazing gentle giant, i used to ride his back, he used to pull be around the fields on my go kart, sadly died age six due to some kind of poisoning.
then my uncle used to breed working springers and he gave us one(my birthday i think) funking crackers that dog was but developed a brain tuma and was PTS age 2.
then my dad said we wouldnt be gettin another dog because it was to hard to say goodbye...
along came my 6th birthday, cam home from school i could here this noise comin from the kitchen... i go in and theres this tiny puppy(5weeks old) yappin in the kitchen, my dad had planned it for a few weeks and it was perfect timing for my bday, it was a EBT X SBT only reason we got it at 5weeks was because he was too strong for the rest of the litter and was bullyin thm for a feed of mum, and the guy feared he'd loose a few pups.. had him 2days and me and my mum went out my dad was meant to come but he said he wasnt feeling well so stayed with the pup.. bloody good job aswell, turns out the breeder had not wormed them and there was worms everywhere, if my dad wasnt there i think we would of lost him
but he taught me everything i kno about dogs, like how loving,loyal,protective they are(learnt that the hard way wen i was jumped but thats another story), was such a strong willed dog, and a clumsy fecker aswell lol fella of a deck chair many times, normal head 1st lol
survived cancer, but sadly was overcome by 2 strokes age 14years
best pic i have of him 3weeks before he was pts
all the kids at kickboxing loved him.. he used to sit in the gym with my dad while i trained..
