Smile Can you guess the breed?

Hello, I am new. I just wanted to post some pics of my new puppy. I take him to the dog park and his breed is often mistaken. Very few people get it correct. He is 10 weeks old and 16 pounds. Any guesses?

one of the bully breeds but which one I'm not sure Or I could be completely wrong But he's a purebred right? Is it a rare breed? I'll just say APBT even though that's probably wrong it was worth a try, Oh well I'm no good at guessing breeds

Here is the best head shot I have right now. He is pure bred and far from being rare.

I didn't think he was rare but just covering all my bases I'll stick to APBT for now.

It's very hard for me to tell when they're pups, especially this young. If I had to guess, I'd say American Bulldog (?)

Cute regardless!!

I see a bit of bull terrier in some of the photos but not enough to make me think purebred. It's tough to tell at such a young age. Looks like he's going to get pretty big though.

I can't tell the head shape. In pups so many of the bull breeds look alike (and yes, I do have a bull breed puppy myself). My pup was 17 pounds at 12 weeks, so I'll have to say yours is AB perhaps?

The problem is even within the bull breeds (example: Johnson vs. Scott-type ABs) there can be a HUGE difference in conformation. Even within litters! A woman down the street from me has a male and female AB from the same litter, and the female is the size of, and has the looks of, an APBT.

I get APBT and Boxer a lot when people see my pup. I've gotten AB twice. I don't expect anyone to know she's an ABBB (or ever know what one is!), I just take that as an opportunity to educate them on bull breeds.

Reggin is an american pitbull terrier. Pure bred. Most people think he is an american bulldog or boxer. I dont see boxer at all, lol. one man thought he was a jack russel terrier. The other day a lady tried to argue with me that he is part boxer, eventhought I know his parents.

I had a rottweiler a few years ago, so I am used to people knowing the breed right away. Its obviously harder to guess bully breeds though.

Thanks for everyones guesses!!
