What is the American Leopard Bully Dog?
GQ is an American bully resembling a pitbull. Jennifer Mitchell, a pet stylist in Fort Myers, created the leopard skin artwork on his fur.
She uses a vegan-friendly paint, and because GQ is such a laid-back pup, he has no problem getting bedazzled, especially if it means more attention.
“I had friends like you need to use TikTok, you need to put him out there. I had no idea it was going to blow up as much as it did,” said Mitchell.
The videos show GQ living luxuriously, meeting people on the beach, and taking jet ski rides on Fort Myers Beach with his gold chain draped over him. The videos went viral, with one receiving over 18 million views.
Jennifer claims that as more videos circulate on the internet, she is receiving criticism from people who believe she is abusing her dogs by painting them.
She claims her Instagram account was deactivated several times for posting videos of her painting GQ. She claims she uses a dog-safe dye that washes off easily after a while.
“There’s no harsh chemicals in it, it’s made specifically and designed for pets,” said Mitchell. “I don’t think there’s a lot of people that know that you can do this.”
Are leopard bully dogs real or fake?
“Leopard bully dogs” are not a recognized or established dog breed. There is no such thing as a “leopard bully dog” in official canine breed registries like the American Kennel Club (AKC) or the United Kennel Club (UKC).
Most videos you see on TikTok are fake. Don’t believe everything you see on social media.
