petbulls is the largest pro-bully breed community on LiveJournal. We are a close-knit, photo intensive community with weekly themed photo contests, along with stories from owners and general breed information.
We are a safe haven to those who love and are loved by the wide variety of bully breeds in this world. We see them for what they truly are, not what the media tell people they are. We welcome owners and fans of all bully breeds from Pit Bulls to Boxers to Mastiffs and mixes!
In this community we support responsible ownership. We accept experienced owners as well as new owners willing to learn and fans of the bully breeds. We welcome questions about the various bully breeds, training, socialization, behavior and health. We try to help whenever and wherever possible.
We support spaying and neutering. There are thousands of bullys dying in shelters all over the world and we don't want to add to the problem. On that note, we do support responsible breeding practices by those who health test and strive for the absolute best in temperament and conformation. We are big supporters of rescue and will advise that you go to your local shelter to save a bully in need before going to a backyard breeder or pet shop. We have a lot of members here that are involved in rescue and some who run their own rescues.
We support obedience training, proper socialization and making your bully an ambassador for their breed. They need all the angels they can get.
We do not support any illegal activities, such as dog fighting. If you support dog fighting, please move on. We also do not support irresponsibility in any way. We are all strongly against breed specific legislation and believe the old quotation, "punish the deed not the breed".
