I found this on a certain ‘Inspiring Am Bully breeder’ facebook. And it makes me laugh. Really hard.
First thing first: the dogs. The picture of the pit bull isn’t great to judge how conditioned it is except for it’s back end… which has been cut off (because logic). It would be better if the dog had it’s front legs on the ground. The Am Bully appears to have most of it’s weight on it’s front paws and is in a terrier stance. Also, the same amount of muscle on a shorter frame is going to naturally look bigger.
Secondly, just because the muscles are bigger doesn’t mean they’re stronger. The guy at the top is a kickboxer (or similar). His muscles are there in order to kick butts and take names. He’s trained in fighting techniques and has the stamina to last in matches that could go on for 5+ minutes. He knows his strengths and weaknesses and uses them to his advantage. The guy at the bottom is a body builder. He can lift a large amount of weight at a time but his stamina is very low. His muscles are purely there for the aesthetics. In a fight, he would have to knock out his opponent quickly with a well placed blow or he won’t stand a chance.
Finally, just because the muscles are there in the first place doesn’t mean the dog will choose to use them. A key trait of the APBT is tenacity. A game APBT must have enough the tenacity to ignore pain, ignore everything and go after what he wants. Am Bullies often lack this trait. They’re not working dogs. They’re pets that have docile temperaments.
