A day in the life with Mia the American Bully (Bully Pit) puppy. 1 year 2 months, 60 pounds, 18 1/2 inches from the ground to the highest point of the shoulders (the withers).

Pack Walk

Someone's at the Door

A blue nose American Bully Pit, an American Pit Bull Terrier and a blue nose Pit Bull Terrier are standing in front of a house door looking at the horse on the porch. A brown with black and white Boxer is looking back confused.

The dogs start to bark. Someone is at the door. Oh, it's Amie and Scooter the horse! Bruno looks back, "Mom look who it is."

Hi Scooter!

Wanting Food

Why are you sitting there staring at me like that?

Ohhhh, you are hoping for a fishy?

Treats Under Cups

A blue nose American Bully Pit, an American Pit Bull Terrier, a brown with black and white Boxer and a blue nose Pit Bull Terrier are standing and sitting on a tiled floor looking up at the camera. There is a person standing behind them.

Sara puts some treats under the cups. No one in the pack is smart enough to paw the cup over to get the food, although Mia was the one who was the closest to getting it. She pushed the cup that had the food under it around the floor with her nose. Spencer may have known, but he is not pushy enough to move a cup around the floor. He waits for the humans to hand him food.

Time to get Spayed

Five weeks after Mia's messy second heat the vet agreed to spay Mia.

This was Mia at the vet waiting to be taken in the back for her spay. The vet also suggested it was a good idea to perform a prophylactic gastropexy (elective stomach tacking) due to the Bully type having a high risk of bloat. Since Mia was going to be cut open in that area for the spay, the gastropexy was easy to perform. Mia's stomach was tacked down to her body wall to prevent her from any future chance of bloating. She needed to spend the night to make sure all was ok before coming home.

Sorry Mia, you have to stay in that x-pen. You are not allowed to have free roam of the house unless you are being followed around by a human to prevent you from hurting yourself.

Nature Always Shows Itself

A blue nose American Bully Pit is sitting on a rug, behind her is a brown with black and white Boxer and behind him is a blue nose Pit Bull Terrier.

I had some treats for the dogs and they line up in their natural born order, once again. Mia making sure she is in the front and Spencer purposely hanging back, which leaves Bruno naturally in the middle.

Again, I am preparing their dog food and they line up. Mia near the front, Spencer hanging back, leaving Bruno and Liea in the middle.

Who wants chicken?

Spencer the back of the line dog wants to go outside to eat his bone in peace with no controversy. Mia the alpha dog wants someone else's bone. Anyone else's bone but her own, she is on the prowl. The two middle of the road dogs, Bruno the Boxer and Liea the Pit Bull eat their bones with no issues. Although Leia, the new rescue dog is a little worried Mia will steal her bone. The rule of not being allowed to steal another dog's bone or protect her own is new to her.

I tell Mia "No". She is not allowed to prowl around trying to steal another dog's bone and she sits down and looks at me all distraught about having to back down. Shortly after she laid down next to her own bone deciding if she cannot have someone else's bone she just won't chew anything. She will often wait until another dog walks away from their own bone to get a drink of water. She will then go chew on the abandoned bone and the dog who got up to get a drink will discover Mia's brand new unchewed bone and the two dogs will trade on good terms.
