Species group:

Other name(s): Bully

The basics:
The American Bully is a cross-breed between the American Pit Bull Terrier and American Staffordshire Terrier first developed in the 1990s to create a more stable family dog from these two controversial purebreeds. The reality is that both parent breeds are powerful dogs that should only be owned by responsible, committed dog owners, and the resulting mix is unlikely to be much different. Careless or irresponsible owners create a dangerous situation for families and neighborhoods and bad publicity for the breed. You should only own this dog if you are committed to properly socializing your pet. Before choosing the Bully, you will want to check your local laws and also your insurer to be certain you're allowed to keep this particular animal.

Although not recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) or other large national dog registries, the American Bully Kennel Club (ABKC) is a breed-specific registry.

Appearance / health:
The American Bully has the athletic muscular build of the American Pit Bull, and the size and mass of the American Staffordshire Terrier. They are of a medium height and length and should have larger blocky shaped heads. Muzzles should be relatively short and blocky. The chest should be wide and deep, and shoulders should be set wide and have a muscular definition. The snow-white "white rhino" Bully is a particularly beautiful and eye-catching variety for the owner with deep pockets.

Behavior / temperament:
With a mixed breed, there is never any guarantee about the dog's personality. However, in the case of the American Bully, the two parent breeds are not terribly dissimilar. Indeed, many people call all them all "pit bulls." Expect a dog capable of deep loyalty to its family members which needs to be socialized properly to prevent them from chasing or attacking innocent pets or people. An abused Bully can represent a danger to your friends or even your family. If you lack the confidence and experience to handle a muscular dog, you should pass on this mix.

The most eager and fastest learning dog I've ever met!

My wife and I met little Sochi at the adorable age of 8 weeks and what an angel she was. Her heart-melting blue eyes peered up at me from her solid grey coat as she sat in the grass and leaned against the leg of the breeder. She’d obviously formed a bond with this guy over her...
