|Haven't started a good discussion thread in a while, so why not.
While doing some protection stuff recently I got to see a really nice Am Bulldog work. Not flashy, but very powerful and confident. Tiller always mentioned that people in sport were moving to them, and I guess I can somewhat see the appeal now.
I'm not really into bully breeds, but I do have a strictly cosmetic attraction to the more mastiff-looking bullies, and Dogos in particular I find to be stellar looking. Am Bulls are fine dogs too of course, but that distinct "bulldog" look just doesn't do it for me at all.
I wonder how close the two are in terms of working ability and how they both compare in handling. A bully is a bully, no free lunches and whatnot, but I wonder if there's any definite "thing" that would steer someone interested in both away from one or the other?
Personally I've never run across an Am Bulldog breeder that I would want to patron, even if I was actively looking. It seems to be a definite "circle" of people, and while it may be what those within the breed look for, it just leaves a bad taste for me. I've never even looked into Dogos, don't know what the population is like here in the states, All I've ever seen in the ways of breeders is the Las Pampas kennel page, and to be honest I get a scuzzy feel from it.
Thoughts, discussion, whatever you've got.
