He looks like a lot of fun. He's adorable.

and hate seeing "outside dogs" I think its cruel. So I'm very happy he's an inside dog.

Thanks! He is pretty fun!
I don't see being an outside dog as cruel, especially if they have food, water, and a decent shelter....My little min pin is an outside dog by choice, she loves it!

Me either, so long as the dog is equipped to handle the elements! I wouldnt keep a pit or a boxer outside 24/7 since their coats don't offer much protection. I remember when I was little my grandma's neighbor tied up their pitbull in a snow storm. I still kick myself to this day about it. Now if its a dog like a bernesse (sp?) Mountain or a husky... even a lab or a rottie... Then I wouldn't think twice about them being outside or outside a majority of the time.

I don't think he's skinny at all.

And he looks like an American Bully to me, not a pit bull. AmBullies came from AmStaffs and are the most common breed mistaken ask Pit Bulls. They are fantastic dogs, friendly as they come.

Looks like a lover -congrats

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks guys!
I was thinking he's an american bully too, but I wasn't sure.
So, seeing as he's pretty much allergic to all the foods we've bought so far, I'm going to switch him to a raw diet...Any tips on that? What to buy, what to mix it with? Any one else feed raw?

What have you tried feeding him? Have you tried grain-free, like Blue Buffalo or Taste of the Wild?

I know a lot of the bully breeds are prone to food allergies, the most common being grain and chicken allergies. Switch to a non-chicken-based grain-free food and you might be surprised at the difference. My Aussie/st Bernard mix has grain allergies (he gets super itchy), so we feed him Taste of the Wild High Prairie with bison and venison. No more itching, super soft and shiny coat, and enough energy at 6-years-old to keep up with our 11-month-old Aussie/border collie/catahoula mix puppy who is very high energy.
