The American Bully dog breed has mostly been established by cross-breeding and selective breeding of the American Staffordshire Terrier and numerous Bull and Terrier breeds since the early 1990s.
The American Bully is a natural offshoot of the American Pit Bull Terrier breed. For almost a century, the APBT has retained a distinct appearance and attitude. Several varieties arose from the parent breed, as with any long-standing breed, with one, in particular, taking on a unique build and structure that made it necessary to designate it as a separate breed. That is the breed of American Bully.
The infusion of various other breeds, such as the American Bulldog, English Bulldog, and Olde English Bulldogge, had a subtle influence on the American Bully breed.
What’s the difference between a pit bull and an American bully doggy?
The American Bully Terrier breed is a descendant of the American Pit Bull Terrier.
Bully Doggies are a cross between an American Bulldog and an American Pit Bull Terrier. Bulldogs of the American Bully breed feel the same way because they are bred from a recently established breed.
The American Bully did not exist until the 1990s. He first appeared in 1990 and gained international acclaim quickly. Between 1980 and 1990, he established a foundation of American Staffordshire Terrier and American Pit Bull Terrier in the United States.
In the United States, American Pit Bull Terriers were used for dogfighting and as hog hunting doggies. The Kennel Club, approved in 2004, was bred primarily as a companion animal and show doggy.
The American Bully is easily identifiable, with a powerful, thick-muscled physique. Their body should be proportioned, and they should not be brachycephalic (short-nosed) to the point of being unable to breathe. Their form should not limit their mobility or agility, and they should be able to move with confidence and ease. Their muscles should provide them power and strength, but not to the point where they cause an uneven or blocky walk.
The American Bully’s head is broad and thick, with well-developed cheeks and a distinct stop. Their muzzle is square and should be shorter than their skull, occupying around a quarter of the head. Their noses must be broad, and their nares must not be underdeveloped. Any nasal pigment will suffice. Their eyes should be well-spaced and not unduly huge. Except for blue, they can be any color. While most breed members will have had their ears clipped, this is not required and is essentially out of favor.
Their necks should be reasonably long and wide, with a slight skin dewlap. While this breed’s chest should be large and deep, it should not obstruct its natural movement despite its extensive front stance. Their limbs are strong, and their feet are tiny and arched. Though the tail of the American Bully can be straight in some cases, it is more commonly a kinked ‘crank’ or ‘pump handle’ seat. Screw (ingrown) tails are not permitted.
The American Bully’s lustrous, close-fitting coat can be any color except merle, related to health problems. Within this new breed, there is a wide range of heights, weights, and general appearance. Male breed members typically stand between 43cm and 50cm tall, while females are slightly shorter, standing between 40cm and 48cm tall. Doggies can weigh anywhere from 30 to 50 kilograms.
The American Bully is designed for families with children or anyone looking for a companion. They make the ideal companion because they are gentle, kind, affectionate, and friendly. This breed can adapt to any living scenario as long as its activity needs are met.
