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 Califia, a 12-inch-high “micro pit bull” who has been valued at over $75,000.
Regular pygmy pit bulls sell for anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000, with interest coming from as far afield as Italy, China and Australia.
