I have admired Bully breeds for quite some time. Currently my wife and I own a 2 yr old male Boston terrier. He is 35lbs of solid muscle, and is even at times mistaken for a small Pit bull. He is tenacious, loyal, and loves all people. He used to be aggressive with smaller dogs, but since maturing out of his puppy stage he seems to be doing much better.
We are currently considering making that step toward pit bull ownership. I am basically looking for any advice that can be given in this regard. How similar is the typical(if there is such a thing) Pit bull personality to how I have described my Boston? Does anyone on the forum own both breeds?
Growing up my family owned a Doberman and my Boston actually plays rougher than our Dobe did. My wife prefers not to play with our boston because of his strength. Unless she says "Leave it" he prefers to play tug of war which she will never win. LOL. How do you think most Pits respond to this type of play? Do they tend to play very rough too? My wife is a bit intimidated by the prospect of a much stronger dog. I am aware that pit bulls can range in size. Can anyone recommend certain smaller lines, in the 40lb range?
I know I have thrown a lot of questions out there, but I would appreciate any feed back on any of the issues raised.
