Temperament

The American Bully is a happy, outgoing, stable and confident dog. Gentle and loving toward people. Good-natured, amusing, extremely loyal and an affectionate family pet. Almost always obedient, this dog wants nothing more than to please its master. It is an extremely courageous and intelligent guard dog that is very full of life. This breed possesses the loyalty and stability of the American Pit Bull Terrier while retaining the sociable, amiable, and outgoing temperament of the American Staffordshire Terrier. This unique breed is noted for displaying extreme tolerance with children and an overwhelming eagerness to please its family. Confident, yet not aggressive, this breed possesses a very pleasant temperament. Physically, the American Bully has an impressive, athletic build, which is both muscular and defined, and displays strength and agility. The breed is versatile and capable of accomplishing a wide variety of tasks. All around, the American Bully is a well-rounded, reliable, trustworthy and ideal family companion. The breed is very outgoing with an eagerness to please. They are known for their courage. A persistent fighter if provoked. Highly protective of his owners and the owner's property, it will fight an enemy to the death if the enemy traps the dog in a corner and threatens its loved ones. This breed has a very high tolerance for pain. Socialize very thoroughly when young to curb any dog aggressive tendencies. It has given outstanding results as a guardian of property, but is at the same time esteemed as a companion dog. This breed is not for the passive owner who does not understand that all dogs have an instinct to have a pack order. Read Top Dog. The American Bully needs an owner who is firm, but calm, confident and consistent. They need to know what is expected of them; rules to follow and limits to what they are and are not allowed to do. The objective in training and successfully keeping this dog is to achieve pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in their pack. When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader; lines are clearly defined. You and all other humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. That is the only way your relationship can be a success.

Height, Weight

Height: 13 - 21 inches (33 - 53 cm)
Weight: 70 - 120 pounds (31 - 54 kg)
There are 5 categories of the American Bully—pocket, standard, extra-large (XL), extreme and classic. Weight and height vary greatly and are not considered important, however correct proportion of weight to height is.

Health Problems

Beware: some Bully breeders give their dogs steroids to produce a large muscular body. When the drugs are stopped the dog's body shrinks back down to a normal size, but leaves the dog with many health issues including organ and joint problems. Sometimes these drugs get passed from mother to puppy. If you are in the market to adopt a Bully be sure to find a drug- free breeder.

Living Conditions

American Bullies will do okay in an apartment if it is sufficiently exercised. They are very active indoors and will do alright without a yard provided they get enough exercise. Prefer warm climates.

Exercise

American Bullies must have plenty of regular exercise including a long brisk daily pack walk to relieve mental and physical energy.

Life Expectancy

About 8-12 years

Litter Size

-

Grooming

The smooth, short-haired coat is easy to groom. Brush on a regular basis with a firm bristle brush, and bathe or dry shampoo as necessary. A rub with a piece of toweling or chamois will make the coat gleam. This breed is an average shedder.

Origin

The American Bully breed was established in the mid-1990s with the purpose of creating the ultimate family companion. The American Bully was created through years of selective breeding by combining the desired traits of the UKC American Pit Bull Terrier and the AKC American Staffordshire Terrier. Some lines have added other bully breeds into the mix and sometimes non bully breeds. The American Bully's origins can be seen both on the East and West Coast of the United States, primarily in Virginia and Los Angeles, California and is spreading to all parts of the U.S. Today the American Bully can also be seen in Europe and Asia. The American Bully, also called the Bully Pit, Bullypit and the Bully Pitbull, is often confused with the American Pitbull Terrier but is clearly a different breed.

Mia the 7-week-old American Bully puppy bred by Dazzling Bullies Kennels—"Mia's daddy is named Ghost, also shown on this page. In a lot of ways she reminds me of Spike the Bulldog. She is affectionate and comical with a lot of character. A big personality in such a little body. She is possibly the most intelligent dog I have yet to own. Even with all of that affection and character she still shows signs of being a good guard dog. The other day she heard a strange noise and ran to the door letting out a bark that sounded like a big dog. After discovering what the noise really was, one of the kids playing with a squeaky toy, she walked away to do other things. Even at 7 weeks a tad of a guard instinct came out. This is her in her roly-poly pose."

Sofia the American Bully at 8 months old—"Sofia was produced by RnC Kennels out of Lehigh Valley, Pa area. She is currently 13 inches tall and weighs about 50 lbs. She is a very loving and caring dog. She plays well with all other dogs and is very tolerant of my 2 young children as well as several of my nieces and nephews of all ages. Sofia was officially house/crate trained by 12 weeks of age. Her shedding is rare and mainly when the seasons change. I have owned American Bullies now for about 10 years and I would never own another breed! I love them and trust them. They are great with my children and that's all I can ask for!"

His favorite activity is chasing the lizards that are basking in the patio, although he's not fast enough to catch them."

She is a very confident little girl. She is full of life and love playing with her brothers. She loves to bask in the sun. She was the not the biggest pup of her litter, but what she lacks in size she makes up in personality."
