Gunner is an American Bully that we bought from one of our friends who bred their dogs... without realizing the father's family "tree" was more of a "bush"... but he's grown to be one of the most fantastic family dogs I could ask for.
Honestly? No real issues with him, he was trained in personal and home protection and ONLY gets aggressive if he's given his "attack word" (which is watch - but he has to see someone on the outside of the house to attack)... Loving family dog - has snapped ONCE at my little brother because my brother snuck up on him while he was sleeping - as SOON as he saw who it was, automatically stopped barring his teeth and started licking my brother's arm - like an apology!
He's got some hip problems and tail issues - the tail was broken at birth, but his hips are caused by the fact that bulldogs LIKE TO SIT ON THEIR HIP! It damages their hip placement and can cause long lasting issues - which his has!
Other than that, excellent family dog - drools a bit too much, but we still love him (:
