If you are looking for a puppy for your family you have many options to choose from, which can make it difficult. One puppy you should consider is the bully puppy. Below is information about this puppy so you can decide if this would be a good fit for you and your family.
Comes in Different Sizes
Bully puppies come in a variety of sizes. If you cannot see the mother when you purchase your puppy, ask the breeder or shelter how large the puppy will grow. This will ensure you do not get a larger dog than you planned. There are standard bullies that you often see but there are also smaller dogs, known as pocket bullies. Some bullies grow to be very large.
A male standard bully can grow up to 20 inches while a large male bully can grow up to 23 inches. You also must consider the weight as a smaller bully weighs less than a larger one. A pocket bully is the smallest available.
Good for Families
No matter what size you choose for your dog, they are great for families. This also includes children as the dog will not harm them while playing. These dogs will be loyal to everyone in your family, and they are also very loving. If you purchase an adult bully, ask the owner about aggression as if the bully was abused or not trained well you may have problems. This goes for any adult dog you may purchase. Many people automatically think bullies are aggressive because they look much like pit bulls. You should know pit bulls are also not aggressive and make great dogs.
Easy to Train
Bully dogs are easy to train as they are very smart. Start with training when your puppy is young and use an experienced trainer. This will make your bully more enjoyable to live with.
During training your puppy will learn basic commands, such as sit, stay, heel, no, off, and down. This is beneficial as your dog will not jump up on people, such as you, your children, or people they meet. This is especially important if you purchase a large bully. Some trainers will do leash training; they'll train them not to pull on the leash when you are walking your puppy. If you are having problems with potty training, the trainer can give you many tips.
Take your bully puppy to the veterinarian when you bring it home for a checkup to ensure it has no health problems.
