American Bully Questions

Is the American Bully the same as a Pit Bull or American Bulldog? What differentiates the breed?

No, they are three separate breeds. APBT (American Pitbull Terrier ) are what most people think of when they see a pitbull. These dogs are generally medium sized dogs, their structure consist of a lean muscle and powerful frame. American Bullies did descend from the American Pitbull Terrier, and or the American Staffshire Terrier, however; they have evolved into their own breed. American Bullies should be more bulkier, with heavier frames. American Bull dogs, are also a breed of thier own.

American Bullies are an off breed of the American Pit Bull Terrier. Documentation shows the true American Bully was created by hand-picked, heavier "bullier" looking APBT puppies added to breeding programs creating a different standard of breed with a different purpose. Mainly to perform in the confirmation ring and in society altogether. There are 5 varieties of American Bullies, Classic, Standard, Pocket, XL and Extreme. The American Bully is far from and APBT but every ancestor documented in the lineage is a pure bred American Pit Bull Terrier. Both the American Bully and APBT can co-exist in the same household with the proper training and consistency. Both are very smart and willing to please. American Bullies were bred for the show ring and APBT's were bred for catch dogs and athleticism. If you want a companion either breed is a great choice, if you want more athletic animal go for the APBT. If you want a dog that looks amazing and requires less exercise then go for the Bully.

Answer: American Bully The American Bully developed as a natural extension of UKC registered American Pit Bull Terriers mated with AKC registered American Staffordshire Terrier; different varieties of the same breed based on bloodline history. In addition, speculation has been made by the UKC, the original registration office for these dogs, that the breed was influenced by the infusion of other bull breeds that have not specifically been identified. The breeders of these dogs have developed the dogs for a specific build and temperament so unique, that it needs to be recognized as a separate breed. Dogs from bloodlines known for producing dogs exhibiting these physical characteristic currently registered as American Pit Bull Terriers within the ADBA stud book will be moved to the designation of American Bully as the breed. Per ADBA:

What is the disposition and demeanor of an American Bully? Will the American Bully get along with a crossbreed boxer and pit? Also do they like to be walked around? We have about 5 or so acres.

There is no one answer to describe the disposition of an American Bully. The can be very loyal & loving, very strong willed or they can be docile. They can be very active or they can be couch potatoes. This breed is a very intelligent breed that needs more human attention and interaction than most breeds. They are great with children and always want to be touched.

A *true* American Bully should be confident, loyal, and affectionate to all people and animals (although sometimes same-sex aggression can occur in intact dogs). Make sure you buy from a breeder that makes temperament a priority! I would also suggest getting a different sex than what you already have, and doing the initial introduction in neutral territory (at the park, at a friend's house, etc). Bullies enjoy moderate exercise.

What type of temperament does the breed really have and where do they come from?

I can say with confidence that 9 out of 10 puppies will have great temperaments as adults if raised properly, just like most dogs. Bullies are basically the revolutionized pit bull. If you research the old school bloodlines like Ghangis kon, Razors Edge, Gottiline, etc. They pioneered the type of American Bullies you see today. It's all about being short and extreme thickness.

Everyone describes the American Bully as aggressive and harmful meanwhile they are very protective and loyal dogs. I know why people may think what they do about them but it depends how you raise them what atmosphere you create! They have the terriers temperament

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.
