Bully Kutta |Facts||Bio||Lifespan|

The Bully Kutta is an extremely dog-aggressive mastiff. They are thick-boned with a muscular structure, a broad head, and the tail tapering to a fine point. Their eyes are almond-shaped and ears erect but are often cropped. Like the bulldogs, they have loose skin especially around the neck and the jaw. These dogs are predominantly white. However, combinations of other colors are also not uncommon.

Theories suggest that, during the British invasion, the British soldiers brought their mastiff dogs with them to India. These dogs later bred with the regional Indian mastiff breeds, giving birth to this new breed of bully kuttas.

During British rule, the Indian continent was divided into many princely states that were divided into many kingdoms, with each kingdom having their own preferences. Thus, the Bully Kutta survived in different features and forms according to the respective zonal preferences. Some of the most common variations are:

  • Ancient Type Bully Kutta
  • Nagi Bully Kutta
  • Mastiff Type Bully Kutta
  • Aseel Bully Kutta
  • Modern Bully Kutta

There is enough debate whether this dog, also known as the Pakistani Mastiff, is the same as the Indian Mastiff. There have also been extensive disputes about the country of origin of this breed, with some claiming it to be India, while the others Pakistan. There is also ambiguity whether this dog actually originated in Northern India or in the Thanjavur and Thiruchi districts in the South.

Whatever the fact is, this strong and dominant Bulldog mix finds its root back to the extinct breed Alaunt that originated in Sindh (desert area of Kutch), Rajasthan and Punjab (Bhawalpur) regions of modern-day Pakistan. In Pakistan, these dogs are extensively used as a guard and fighting dog even to the present day.
Due to their heavy size and dominance, bully kuttas can be dangerous to both the owners  as also the strangers, and are potentially not good with children and other pets (including dogs). They are aggressive by instinct.

The bullies are also not recommended for apartment life since they need a huge space. Hence, they are not recommended for first-time or timid owners. However, strong socialization is recommended to have a control of such situations.

Bully Kuttas have the gait similar to that of a lion or tiger. They are intelligent and noble. With their strong sense of sight and smell, they make a good guard dog that would not just protect its own territory but also the owner and his property. However, the puppy needs enough training to develop a bond with its owner. These dogs drool and are prone to sleeping all day.
