Forget Pugs, Pomeranians or Chihuahuas - the rich and famous could soon be carrying a Pit Bull in their Gucci handbags. These adorable canines are valued for over $50,000 and their friendly nature but buff exterior makes them the new craze in the United States.

A new breed of “micro pit bulls” is rapidly becoming the must-have canine companion in the world of designer dogs. John Truitt, 30, from Long Beach in California, runs The Collectibulls, a company which breeds, trains, and sells ‘bullies’ to customers around the world, and is a leading advocate for the breed. His signature dog is Queen Califa, a 12-inch-high “micro pit bull” who has been valued at over $75,000.

He goes to say that what sets these dogs apart from the ordinary American Pit Bull are both the size and the character. Micro bullies stand at about 9 to 11 inches, while their larger relatives easily reach 21 inches. The largest dog in this category is actually named Hulk and he weighs around 175 pounds.

One of the main things John wishes to accomplish by promoting this breed is to assure people that pit bulls are not the scary monsters they are portrayed out to be. He says that they are extremely cuddly, they like the attention and they are generally easy to get along with.
