“Kill the body and the head will fall” — Joe Frazier versus Muhammad Ali The quote in boxing is meant to say attacking the body will expose the head for a knockout blow. The axiom also can apply to people in saying that to think differently doesn’t primarily happen in the mind, but truly starts in the heart. In dogs the saying could be that building a true bully starts with the body and the head will follow. The American Bully has long been considered a head breed, but the body of a Bully is what often stops traffic. Today’s Bully has loss some of the body, but when it comes to Grand Champion Shots Fired it’s time to bring the body back. In a world of bowling ball heads, and stick figure bodied Bullies... there stands one.... Grand Champion Shots Fired that has emerged and brought back the bulges of Bully, in a body that makes you forget that he still boasts a 25 inch dome. Seeing him is like seeing Mr Olympia in canine form. Muscles on top of muscles and a workout regiment that supplement companies would try to avoid mentioning for fear that genetics will trump their business plan. The epitome of the canine body builder, Shots Fired has impressed exhibitors and judges alike. The crowds flock around the beast whether at a show, or walking the streets of the Northeast. In the show ring judges have awarded him Best in Show wins to secure the pound for pound title most bullies thrive for. Body shot, body shot, breathe and repeat. It’s constant work, constant rest, and consistent preparation. It’s road work, it’s mental sets, built on the genetics that has already laid the foundation of future legends. It’s a marathon being performed by a beast that only knows sprinter speed. It’s the impossible that is possible once you recognize Shot Fired is something different. He’s not comparable, he’s not a second coming.... he’s an original the first of his kind. The prototype to something different, something more. He is picking up a solid 100 pounds of dog, not a flabby, soft mushy bean bag bully. He’s heavy, he’s massive. He’s the right hook to the kidneys that has its opponent drop to his knees gasping for air. The crowd not knowing what happened, if his opponent had simply quit... not knowing the body shot killed the game. Shots has been hitting the competition for months. Killing the body of the breed, methodically delivering blows with timing. It’s the madness of purpose. Deliberately delivering devilish digs to lesser dogs bodies. Watching as their large heads sag, and their tongues hang out as they can’t keep his intense pace. Shots Fired has teased the crowds early in the year. He’s played with the competition, mere sparring sessions for the Grand Champion, toying with the idea that he may make the run. Now he’s fully in the ring, he’s stepped through the ropes, the newly crowned mascot champion, he’s ready for the title belt.... but with the body that Shots has.... they are going to need a bigger belt.
