American Bully

The American Bully has a larger head than the Pitbull, especially in proportion to their body. They also have much shorter legs, and their overall body is wider. 


Dogo Argentino

They have the same muscular frame and facial structure as a Pitbull. However, these dogs are almost always pure white, whereas a Pitbull can come in a number of colors.



Bull Terrier

The Bull Terrier is a stocky dog with a unique appearance. They are occasionally confused with a Pitbull because they share a similar height, have shorter legs, and are full of muscle. 


Cane Corso

Similar to Pitbulls, Cane Corsos have somewhat of a dangerous reputation. This might come from their appearance. They’re a large breed of dog.


Presa Canario

The Presa Canario is a large mastiff-type breed. They are very powerful and can reach up to 150 pounds. This type of dog is aware of its strength and size, which makes them natural protectors.
