First American Bully Show in Malaysia

Note: This is a totally non-coffee related post.

On the 7th December 2008, I attended a very interesting dog show in Penang. Most of you probably have never seen such dogs before.

This is an American Bully

The American Bully is consider somewhat of a new breed, probably dated back about 10 years. Some would consider them as mixed-breed instead of a pure breed.

What really is a pure-bred dog? All the so-called pure-bred dogs like Poodle, Pug, Boston Terrier, German Shepherd, Doberman and etc are not exactly PURE, if you understand PURE as in uncontaminated or unique. All these dogs went through many years of selective breeding to bring out their unique standards or preferred criteria.

Once the preferred standards of criteria is met, they name it as such and such a breed. Therefore, a poodle is call a pure breed because they met a specific sets of standards. And of course if you want to have a “pure” poodle, you bring together a male and female poodle (that meet the specific sets of standard) and mate them.

Therefore, if you mate a poodle with a pug, you will get a mixed breed. (But for the love of dogs, don’t. I can’t imagine what a cross between a poodle and a pug looks like? Probably an abomination :D… )
