Personalities of Pitbull Bulldog Mixes
Being good natured and with a high tolerance to pain, Bully Pits are sturdy and do not mind if their tails or toes are accidentally stepped on by children.
Bully Pit puppies are extremely energetic and have practically an unlimited supply of liveliness for hours at a time. They also enjoy playing tug, catch and other activities well into their old age.
A crossbreed of Pitbull and Bulldog will mature into a very confident, strong, and a friendly dog around people, that to some extent, will become too dependent. When the dog is left alone, he or she will often chew on furniture to express frustration and loneliness, or to attract your attention so proper puppy training at an early stage is a must.
The Bully Pit is not receptive to other dogs, especially of the same sex, but with structured obedience training, they will come to obey much more readily over time.
Appearance of Pitbull Bulldogs
These puppies will grow into muscular dogs with a weight ranging from 30 to 75 pounds, with a medium length head and broad and well-defined facial features.
Their ears are set high and may be cropped or left in their natural state. Additionally, their jaws and neck are strong, which narrows from the shoulders to the bottom of the head, without any slack skin.
This crossbreed is short-haired, of solid or combined colors, such as spotted or bicolored, which is quite striking.
Bully Pitbulls have rippling muscles underneath their short and glossy coats; have solid and muscular legs, a deep chest, and the hind ends are built proportionately. When full grown, the look of this dog creates an impression of power and athleticism.
Exercising of Pitbull and Bulldog Mix
As a puppy, the Bully Pitbull already shows a tendency of being active as they enjoy physical activities, such as running around the house, and are always ready to play.
When they grow up, having a daily long walk of about thirty minutes in the park will help the dog to release his or her excess energy. You and your dog can also go for a regular swim at the beach or in the backyard pool as all dogs love to be in and around water and this one is no exception.
If you have a large backyard with a fence, playing fetch using a tennis ball or Frisbee is a perfect way to exercise your puppy. Not only can it run and catch the object, he or she can also gnaw on it to satisfy the chewing behavior which is especially helpful if you have a teething puppy.
In the end, owning Pitbull Bulldog mix puppies are ideal for families who are looking for an active, robust and energetic dog, and at the same time prefer a friendly dog around people.
