    Awww I'm sure he looks like a bully. Don't worry about the ppl who have no idea about breeds. As for when they actually look like a bully, I don't have an answer for that as Brie is my first bully n has always looked like one. Have any pics of Diesel you can post?

    I have a boxer and a bulldog and they look nothing alike! People are dumb!! However, our male boxer was very tall and lean so people thought he was a Great Dane!!!

    I also have a bully & a boxer… to me they look VERY different. But I've seen pics on here of bully pups that looked very similar to boxer's. It takes about 3 years for them to fill out, so he will change over time. People are VERY stupid sometimes, my boxer is a reverse brindle (black w/brown stripes) so many people think she's a pit. I happen to have NO issue's w/pits but I'm like REALLY?!!

    At 14 weeks bully pups are all legs and ears it's very normal for people to think that you have a boxer pup. They start to really broaden at close to a year old.

    Yeah, this is a common theme here. Many bullies start off looking like boxers for a bit, then broaden out.
    don't take it personally.

    Oh, and Welcome to EBN.

    Amber filled out as she turned two and Ruby is filling out faster than Amber did. Not sure but I think Ruby will be bigger than Amber when she is done growing. I have had people ask what kind of dog they are when they were little but no one mistakes either of them for anything other than a bully. It takes time but just all of a sudden you will look and see they transitioned, almost over night.

    Not to worry! I worked for a Country Vet.and that is when I learned how DUMB and uncaring many PEOPLE really are! It was a really shocking lesson-only cows were important, 'cause they made $$$! Don't worry about your dog- I'm sure nothing is wrong with THE DOG..................

    We were at a carnival with Brutus over the summer and a family was walking toward us and the father says oh look at the cute puppy is he a boxer or a mastiff and the little girl said no daddy he is a bulldog!!! She couldn't have been a day over 8yrs old. Smart kid.
