The "Bull & Terrier" was a single breed developed in Europe with many different physical characteristics. They were bred for tenacious temperament, blending old eng. bulldogs with various terriers. Terriers add bravery and old eng. bulldogs added jaw size and strength, along with willingness to please. Overtime, the Bull & Terrier evolved into the modern day AKC Am. Staff and the UKC APBT. The Am. Bully came specifically from Razor's Edge bred bloodlines of UKC APBTs of the 90's, infusing AKC Am Staffs and AKC Staffies. The modern result is a smaller, denser, more old eng. bulldog leaning phenotype that is the Am. Bully. They do not have the high animal aggression of the APBT, nor are they as mild as Golden Retrievers. They are somewhere in between, and with patience, are readily integrated into households with other, non-APBT dogs.
