About American Bully Dogs And Puppies

The American Bully is a recently formed breed (often mistaken for the American Pit Bull Terrier) which is well known for its striking appearance and amiable temperament. The original American Bully style is the Classic; these dogs do not display the exaggerated features often found in the other varieties, and arguably display clearer American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier lineage.

Appearance:

The Classic is a lighter frame dog than the Standard but falls within the same height range; dogs must be 17-20″ (43-51 cm) while bitches must be 16-19″ (40-48 cm). It is a small to large breed which has been divided into four categories; Pocket, Standard, Classic and XL.

Standard:

The Standard type is a compact, muscular dog with a large blocky head; this is arguably the most popular type alongside the Pocket type.

Pocket:

The most commonly seen of the varieties, the Pocket dogs are 14-17″ (36-43 cm) while females are 13-16″ (33-40 cm) at the withers.

XL:

Arguably the type showing the greatest diversity in appearance, the XL is the largest variety ranging from 19-22″ (48-54 cm) in bitches and 20-23″ (51-57 cm) in dogs. These tend to be heavily muscled, impressive dogs.

Over All Nature:

The American Bully is a highly adaptable breed, often acting as a laid back companion dog in the home while showing a zest for life and energy while outside. Many dogs, despite acting as lap dogs in the home, do well in sports such as weight pull and spring pole. Despite excelling in such sports and public misconception, dog and human aggression is discouraged and seldom seen in the

Behavior:

Bullies are well known for their gentle, loving nature towards children and are often patient with rough play. However, as with all dogs, caution should be taken when allowing children and dogs to interact, and should never be left together unsupervised.
