American Bully is a breed of companion dog, of standard size, molossus type, of North American origin. in the United States, and by Alianz Canine and the CRCPE (Conservation of pure dog breeds in Spain), in Spain, both entities officially recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Environment of Spain.
It is a relatively young breed (1980) although its development and recognition of this was not until 1990. According to UKC, the breed has been obtained by crossing the American Staffordshire Terrier (Amstaff), Staffordshire bull terrier, Pit bull (from the UKC), English Bulldog, Olde english bulldogge, American Bulldog and French Bulldog. However, there are controversies regarding Pit bull involvement as the UKC agrees to register Amstaffs as pit bull terriers, and the UKC dogs used in the crosses were from Amstaff lines. The ABKC (American Bully Kennel Club), for example, highlights the great similarity between the bully and the Amstaff, pointing to physical appearance as the only difference.2
Its breeders took special care to get a dog that was an excellent family companion, carefully selecting the most desirable attributes of the American Stafforshire Terrier, with the noble and calm temperament of the bulldog, which has resulted in a loyal and delicate temperament pet, although physically (despite its robust appearance) it leaves much to be desired because it does not perform any job function as a dog.
It is a fairly tame dog and was not created for any job function, they are usually very muscular, with a powerful head, short back. It is a compact and somewhat intimidating dog at first sight, but with a good character, especially with children, which makes this dog its best and most outstanding feature.
The ABKC (American Bully Kennel Club) recognizes four varieties of American Bully, the other cinephile entities are limited to accepting only the standard and classic varieties.
History and origin
The American Bully as a breed arose from the desire to have a companion dog that was totally docile with both people and animals, but that had a strong and heavy appearance with a differentiated head.
In the 1990s David Wilson, who was previously an admirer of pit bulls, became interested in dogs of the American Staffordshire Terrier (Amstaff) breed and at this time began his creation of Amstaffs using the Blue maxx dog, the bitch Silver Sadey of ML, the dog Throwin Knuckles] and the dog Jackson's Mr. Brooks - all with several champions of the American Kennel Club in their pedigree - managing to develop a lineage of robust dogs with bulky heads, which was known by the name of its Razor Edge hatchery.
In the mid-1990s until the early 2000s, the lineage was noticed for its blue nose, robust, compact physique with a large head, and its intimidating appearance, and these dogs later received the nickname of "bully style".
At the same time, two other similar lineages emerged presenting the same concept, and which had equal importance for the American Bully: the Gotti (or Gottiline) lineage based on the Notorious dog Juan Gotty that produced more than 900 children; and the Greyline lineage based on the dog Tony's Showtime.
The "bully movement" or "bully style" - which also occurred in other breeds such as the American Bulldog and the Olde English Bulldogge - became quite popular and various aspects emerged within the concept that using the cited lineages along with excessive achievement from blood matings and the insertion of bulldog breeds, dogs with quite exotic and robust physical characteristics originated.
With this insertion of other breeds - based on credible accounts, the insertion of English bulldog, French bulldog, American bulldog, dogue de bordaux and even types of mastiffs is suspected - the morphological selection finally gave rise to the American Bully breed and its own various varieties, including official varieties: standard, classic, pocket and XL; differing in size and weight. Among these varieties only the "Standard" is recognized by the United Kennel Club. In addition to these, there are also unofficial varieties.
In 2003, the Bully Kennel Club (BKC) was founded as its own breed registration club. And in 2004 the American Bully Kennel Club (ABKC), now known as the breed's largest club, was founded. In 2013 the American Bully was finally recognized by the United Kennel Club as the second largest international club in the United States.
