    Midnight Cowboy was an APBT and Gator is a line of American Bully. Even if this is true, which its not without a full pedigree, they are still mutts.

    As bull breeds they are more prone to dog aggression which might come out in one or both of them later, but we won't know if they will be okay with each other or not just yet. I would suggest never leaving them together unsupervised, always kennel, chain, crate or separate them in different rooms, it only takes one disagreement to start a fight and bull breeds will not give up a fight, the last thing that you want is to go out and come back to one or both of your dogs dead. I strongly advise against leaving them alone together, especially once mature, to prevent any accidents.




    Here is Midnight Cowboy's pedigree if you are interested

    I must state that I have no particular knowledge of bull breeds, and stand to be corrected by specialists, but do not think that it is a good idea to have two litter brothers of any working terrier type in the same domestic area.
    Two puppies from the same litter begin by being so closely bonded that they are hard to train as individuals. As infants this will take the form of a wrestling match, but with the release of male hormones at puberty, it can easily develop into a trial of strength, and take on a more serious nature. Although I believe that any breed is capable of being trained to become a good citizen, I have to say that it does worry me that you have children and have taken on two males who have the potential to become aggressive.
    I would seriously consider rehoming one of these puppies, and putting all your training time into making the other one a balanced family pet. I'm sorry, I suspect that this is not what you wanted to hear.

    @Bates123 - a DNA test will prove nothing except that it will cost you money. Those tests are by no means conclusive.

    You have two cute little very young mutts and there is no way any DNA test will give you the answer you want.

    You have been given two free mutts. How they will turn out to be is more up to you than up to them. And it is up to you that they do not end up to a kill pound when they grow up and their puppy nips turn into full blown bites and into attack mode.

    I wouldn’t rely on DNA testing to be of any use, not all dog breed DNA tests are created equal, it depends how many breeds are in a company’s database.

    So if a DNA test cant prove what they are then how am I suppose to take your word on what they are since you saying that Dna wont prove anything basically your telling me DNA and your word isnt reliable at all

    No. I am not saying that my word is not reliable. All I am saying is that DNA testing is not reliable.

    I am also saying that any one who just gives away two very young puppies for free cannot be reliable in what they say.

    My pevious two puppies were of unknown origin, unwanted and adopted by me. I never did know their "breed" not that they were of any breed. They were 100% mongrels. But I loved them dearly and it did not matter what "breed" or even "cross breed" they were. They were my girls and I loved them more than you will ever know. Especially the second one who developed serious epilepsy. I still loved her until I had to let my Vet give her peace.

    My current 2-year-old is not a mongrel, she is a cross-breed - Dachshund/MinPin and yes, I saw her with her Dachshund dam and her other litter mates. And yes she came to me still needing bottle feeding day and night because it was "take her now" with the unspoken "or else". That was not my choice at that age but really I had no choice.

    If you wish to spend your money on DNA testing, what will you do when you get a result, whether it is what you want or not?

    I honestly wish you the best of luck, but I really do not think anyone on this forum can give you any more advice.

    The puppies are just mutts. American Bully mixes judging by the color pattern and the splayed toes. I'm in Georgia as well. Those are common here, especially if you're anywhere near Atlanta. Just research American Pit Bulls and American Bullies if you want to know about your dogs.

    DNA tests on dogs aren't accurate and are generally a waste of money. There's no point anyway. A lot of the temperament of a dog is bred into it and the rest is trained into it. I wouldn't have advised getting two of them, they are likely to be a handful and bully breeds can be impatient with young children sometimes.

    Remember to train your kids along with training the dogs. People in Georgia with these dogs often tend to think it's okay for the dogs to be used as toys for the children. This is a critical error and may lead to the kids being bitten etc. Don't let the kids pull on the dog, sit on him, etc.

    Don't use those popular strangle collars or prongs either. Don't smack the puppies either if they do annoying or bad things. Very counter productive, especially with bully dogs. Just read a lot and teach the dogs manners without being harsh. It'll be tough since they're brothers but it can be done. Begin teaching basic commands immediately.
