Man Who Didn’t Want Dogs Now Has Two ‘Snack Buddies’ In Adorable Video

Dogs provide companionship, entertainment and unconditional love, with the ability to charm even the most reluctant of dog owners.

And nowhere is this more evident than in a TikTok video posted by @noah_and_lincoln, which has now been viewed over 11.1 million times.

In the video, two American bullies can be seen following their human dad around the house, while he subtly feeds them snacks.

“My husband who didn’t want dogs at first,” explains the text, a situation that couldn’t be more different now. “Snack buddies,” reads the caption.

The adorable American bullies, Noah and Lincoln, have their own website, where their owners explain their mission “to change the hearts and minds of those who are afraid of the breed.”

“The American Pit Bull Terrier was a beloved dog in American culture as far back as the 1800s but over time, evil people got a hold of the breed and turned them into fighting machines,” the website adds.

American bulldogs are descendants of the English bulldog, and it’s thought they were introduced to the U.S. in the 1800s by immigrants who brought their working bulldogs with them, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC).

“Small farmers and ranchers used this all-around working dog for many tasks including farm guardians, stock dogs, and catch dogs,” previously reported the AKC. “The breed largely survived, particularly in the southern states, due to its ability to bring down and catch feral pigs.”

“American Bulldogs are known for their almost clownish-like behavior when happy and excited,” continued the AKC. However, through irresponsible owners the animals’ reputations have been tarnished and they are thought by many to be aggressive and dangerous dogs.

“If the correct early foundations are put in place, there is no reason why a bulldog can’t make a lovely well-rounded family pet and not be seen as any more ‘dangerous’ than any other breed,” wrote Vet Help Direct on its website, “Despite their popularity and potential to be thought of as ‘dangerous’, bulldogs are rarely identified in dog-bite or dog-fatality statistics.”

Difference Between American Bulldog and American Pit Bull Terrier

The key difference between the two types of dog is the American bulldog is considered a purebred, while the American pit bull terrier is a mix of old English Bulldog and old English Terrier breeds.

Pit bulls were typically used in dog fights beginning in the 1800s, and an amount of irresponsible selective breeding happened to hone the perfect fighting winner.

“Can we appreciate how well behaved those pits are,” commented one user. “He loves them. Pit Bull’s are honestly so gentle and loving best dogs ive ever had,” said another.
