Are Micro Bullies Dangerous? – Detailed Guide

Many of you have a question in your mind are Micro Bullies dangerous?

Micro Bully is one of the most misunderstood dog breeds of all time. The number of misconceptions about Micro Bullies, based on looks and gossip, is staggering, yet nothing could be further from the truth.

I will try my best to clear up any misunderstandings and misrepresentations and share the most accurate knowledge based on my personal experience in this article. Let’s get to it:

What is a Micro Bully?

First things first, what exactly is a Micro Bully? Some people confuse it with other dog types, such as a Pitbull or an Exotic Bully, which are entirely different breeds. A Micro Bully results from cross-breeding an American Bully with a Patterdale Terrier.

The result is a tiny-sized American Bully look-alike with all the features of an American Bully but the height of a Patterdale Terrier.

Micro Bully has a height of 11 to 14 inches, compact muscle builds, a big head with a small muzzle, and weighs around 20 pounds but can go as high as 50. Micro Bullies can live up to 11-13 years & have the shape and build of an American Bully but are much shorter and cute.

It was bred to be a family dog, yet it is perceived as a guard dog by many due to less understanding of the breed. Many people fear micro bullies dogs are dangerous and stupid, but rest assured, all that is a lie.

Are Micro Bullies Dangerous?

Micro Bullies are not dangerous at all. They are the cutest and most loyal breed there could ever be. Micro Bully is bred to be cuddle lovers and people pleasers. Most Micro bullies live in warm homes where they are cared for and love being petted and around their owner.

Micro Bullies live to please and play around to cuddle with their owner on the couch & want to be loved and not cause any problems. However, nothing could be the furthest from the truth if you think they are dangerous.

A dog’s behavior depends on a few things, its parent breed, surrounding environment, and training. A high-quality breed Bully will never act aggressively or do any harm to anyone unless provoked, just like any other breed. Micro Bullies become aggressive only if they are not trained and socialized sufficiently.

Some owners treat Micro Bullies like fighting beasts and don’t train them well, causing them to develop aggressive behavior, but that is due to the incompetence of the owner/trainer and not the Micro Bully breed. Any dog breed will be troublesome if not appropriately trained.

Do Micro Bullies Bite?

Yes and no, a Micro Bully will not intentionally bite unless you provoke them. But in no case has a well-trained Micro Bully ever bitten anyone; this goes for any dog, for that matter, not just micro bullies.

The bite of a Micro Bully is more dangerous than an average dog because they have powerful jaw muscles. But as I have said above, some people think of this dog as a guard dog and train them to be in such a way. Combining this type of upbringing with a strong jaw is just the perfect recipe for destruction.

Some cases of bully-biting have been reported, but they are not Micro Bullies; they are Pitbull and Rottweilers.

Such incidents paint a sinister picture of bullies, responsible for only 2% of dog bites in the US. Unfortunately, this creates fear in the general public’s hearts for these cute little dogs.

Is It Hard to Train Micro Bully?

I have a 7-month-old Micro Bully along with 2 other pups. Let me tell you something; he is the easiest to train because Micro Bullies generally are brilliant dogs. Mine, named Terry, is just the cutest little social butterfly that gets along with other dogs and humans.

If you are a first-time owner of a dog, then don’t ever feel ashamed to ask for help from a professional trainer. Micro Bullies are very easy to train, but it can be hard for you if you have never trained a bully before due to their sheer physical strength.

Also, if you are lazy, don’t get a Micro Bully and keep looking for another breed that might suit your nature. Micro Bullies are low maintenance but still need exercise, about 30 minutes walk daily.

Micro Bullies are self-entertaining, but not enough interaction can render them bored, and they can become lazy and create lousy habits of lying around the house. In addition to walks, take your Bully to dog parks where they can meet new dogs and make some friends.

Micro Bully comes from a working dog breed, so they have inherited their energetic behavior, so stimulate them. If you can’t take them outside, ensure they get enough exercise indoors. Soon enough, you will learn how easy it is to work with Micro Bullies.

Micro Bully, a Good Pet or Not

Micro Bullies make for excellent pets, especially for a family. They are naturally goofy but genius and live to please their owner & love to cuddle and play around without causing any problems.

All a Micro Bully wants is love and to give love. Also, micro bullies are small, making them compact, so keeping them in a small house such as an apartment is easy. They have a very warm temperament and positive energy, which everybody loves. Don’t judge a bully by their appearance.

Micro Bullies are highly easy-going dogs as they were intentionally bred to be family dogs with no aggressive behavior. So, rest assured they are just perfect for you and your family.

Sometimes, they don’t fit in with someone because of a bad owner or a low-quality breed. In either case, they, as a whole breed, are very nice for families, and there is nothing to worry about.
