BULLY KUTTA

History

As per theories, at the time of the British invasion, the British brought Mastiff dogs to India. Later on, these dogs bred with mastiff breeds of India breeding this new race named Bully Kutta. Its history is still a mystery because many researchers say that they originated in Pakistan. There is a lot of significance of the name as the word ‘Bully” comes from Punjabi (the language spoken by people in Punjab of Pakistan) ‘Bohli’ meaning ‘heavily wrinkled.’  The word ‘Kutta’ comes from an Urdu or Punjabi language meaning ‘dog.’ It also has the feature of an extinct breed the Alaunt which originated in Rajasthan & Punjab (Bhawalpur), Sindh (run of Kutch) and modern Pakistan. It is also called ‘Indian Alangu Mastiff’ because they come from Thanjavur and Tiruchi districts in South India.

Exercise

As this breed has the habit of sleeping the entire day, they should exercise regularly. However, jogging or brisk walking can satisfy their migration instinct and they should learn to walk beside or behind a person to understand whom he should follow.

Grooming

Bully Kutta is a moderate shedder, so it needs low maintenance with occasional brushing with a slicker brush. Bathing is not necessary and just a damp towel can remove its dirt. Clipping of hair is not recommended because it may affect re-growth, instead of stripping is a good option.

Health Problems

The Sindhi Mastiff is a very healthy breed of dog with a low ratio of health issues. It only tends developing blindness and arthritis in latter part of their life. Due to its size, it may also suffer from bloating and other such problems like dental and flea issues, heartworms, and halitosis.

Training

Due to the attacking nature of the breed, they are challenging to train. They are also not suitable for first-time owners or timid owners, but if prepared to socialize at an early age, the situation can be under control.

Feeding

The breed is active, strong and muscular. Thus it requires food rich in nutrition like eggshell crushed in the food supplied. They should be given the proper amount of food at the appropriate stages. For example, puppies of 8 to 12 weeks old require four meals every day and their diet should lessen as they become older and when they become adult, they should be given one meal per day with 30% vegetables, 40% meat, and 30% starch. Maintain supply of water consistently and take care of its hygiene by keeping water bowls clean.
