The 'Bully' Breeds



I'm uploading this here even though I know it won't get any traffic.

I made it for the benefit of a few rescue groups up here that hold information sessions while fighting the blight that is BSL (Breed Specific Legislation). I saw something similar done that was being passed around on facebook and thought "I can do one better.", so I did.

Dogs were based off random photos found online. Redrawn and simplified to keep the chart looking clean and uncluttered. I think it turned out pretty cool.

Some people would argue that Boxers and Bostons aren't "bully", but I disagree. Bostons are direct descendants of fighting dogs (the other branch went off and created the AmStaff and APBT), and Boxers (especially when their tail and ears aren't cut off) have the same "look" even though they're more from the Boar-hunting Mastiff side and not so much the Bulldog (but same can be said of the Dogo, which is a Mastiff created to hunt Hogs, that is often tossed in with the "bully" breeds).

Anyway, enjoy.

Other breeds commonly misidentified by the media/uneducated people as "pit bulls" include:

-Presa Canario
-Cane Corso
-Bull Mastiff
-French Mastiff (Dogue de Bordeaux)
-Catahoula Leopard Dog
-Valley Bulldog
-Fila Brasilerio
-Ca De Bou
-Alano Espanol
-Greater Swiss Mountain Dog
-Patterdale Terrier
-Olde English Bulldog

And I'm sure there are a few I missed...
