Re: [Jason Lim] English Bull Terrier

If I'm not mistaken, you're talking about the so-called "unique breed" American Bullies right? Don't worry, I am dead against those people breeding mutts for no purpose. Those pits are just pure 100% mutts that are not recognized by any legit clubs & yes, they look like Chihuahuas on steroids. Seriously they do! AB breeders are just breeding them for no good reason at all. They're just doing it as a contest of 'one-up manship' like this breeder breeding a dog with big head so the next breeder breeds a bigger head or this breeder breeding fat hippo-like body & then another breeder breeds a fatter hippo-like body & it goes on & on until the poor animals turn into giant lumps of lard!
Those dogs look seriously unhealthy & right now, AB breeders are breeding genetically unhealthy rare "blue" pits & people are actually buying them because they don't know any better or they don't care. It's just a new fad & a sales gimmick. And yes, I REALLY pity those buyers buying or who have bought them. They have NO idea how unhealthy those dogs are. I have seen some that are seriously bow-legged, front feet pointing east & west, cow-hocked, have breathing problems & lord knows what else. I seriously can go on & on about ABs but I am really sleepy right now & my brain is fried for being on the computer the whole day. LOL!
Jason, ANY dog can be trained regardless of the breed. Even Afghan Hounds, the so-called "least intelligent" breed can be trained. It just depends on how much understanding the handler has with that particular breed/dog & how much effort & patience the person puts in into training that dog. Let me tell you this, you will only find one or two or three breeders including myself in Malaysia, who will breed dogs BOTH for show & performance. I will only purchase & breed dogs that are 'good specimen of the breed' & that includes the natural ability to retrieve because GRs were originally bred to retrieve waterfowls during hunting. I will never breed a dog solely for conformation.
And you're absolutely correct. There are MANY unscrupulous show breeders who are just as bad as BYBers all over the world so it's VERY important to GO to the breeder's place, MEET them & SEE the dogs yourself, etc etc etc before finally deciding to buy that puppy or dog.
There's a link right there in my K9 Hiking post explaining what it is about. Go check it out. It's just a place my Mom & I found to go hiking with the dogs. Hikers hike there every Friday & even camp overnight around the abandoned roundabout.
"Multi BIS (local) GreatGrowkenn Agnes CGC" is ranked #5 (all-breed) in Best Malaysian Bred Dog Of The Year 2010"
