Kim and Paul had discussed getting a dog for a while and they had done a huge amount of research on breeds, training, etc. Paul, oddly enough, stereotyped Bullies just like the general public tends to do, so they weren’t looking for a bully breed.
They thought Sully, their first dog, was a Great Dane mix, but he is actually an American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer mix. The instant Paul saw his video, he was in love!
