|The American bully is kinda like the labradoodle
a fake breed, one problem is these dogs are often refered to as full bred pits, even by there breeders.
The American bully is an American pitbull terrier mixed with other dogs in the bully breed family(sometimes dogs outside the bully breed), And is often in bred to cause it to have a more aggressive behavior. The dogs whole existence is to make it’s handler look “bad ” for lack of a better term. Now I’m not saying these dogs are bad I’m sure in the right hands they could be the best dogs around, but through no fault of there own they are being bred for the the large head and stocky short body, and easty westys.
Not only is this not fair for the American pit, it’s not fair to the American bully, most of these dogs don’t go to homes, with people who want them as pets, as family dogs, most of there owners want them to breed so they can have the best baddest bloodline. Others get them to look tough to impress there friends and it’s not fair to ether of the dogs.
There are more breeders of this “American Bully”
Then there are of the real pitbull.,
The video below is an American bully, and his breeder showing him off.
I don’t think a responsible breeder would be happy with this dogs behavior.
You might want to mute it
it's a little hard on the ears.
It seems MOST breeders of this "american Bully" don't breed for a good temperment.
The american bully is a fake pitbull.
There are a lot of health issues that this Imatation dog gets. Usually the chest is too large for the legs which causes a lot of joint problems, they also have a lot of respiratory problems.
I'm a bit tired so i hoped the above made sense.
American Pitbull Terrier
The following is a copy and paste from Diane Jessups site
"Today's "imitation pit bull" otherwise known as "the blue whale", "short and wide", "low rider" or "American bullie". Man OR dog - If they have to try and look tough - they probably aren't...
The eternal American Pitbull bulldog: a medium dog of great strength, agility and stamina. Wiry, tough and tight. He knows who he is - no need for costume jewerly here. "
And this is from the "real Pit bull Blog"
"The American Bully fad is the result of breeders wanting bigger, beefier Pit Bulls that are meaner looking and carry a higher price tag. The American Bully breeders blatantly ignore APBT breed history and standards, breed whatever sort of 'look' best suits them (the Pocket Bully is another version of the bully style dog - what comes next is anyone's guess), and then peddle the dogs to the public. The dogs are simultaneously represented as Pit Bulls through registration with the UKC, and as a 'new breed', the American Bully, through registration with the American Bully Kennel Club (ABKC). And although the fad claims that the American Bully is just a 'cross' of AmStaff and APBT bloodlines, it seems obvious that many of these dogs are actually mixed with mastiff and bulldog breeds to create the huge heads, and short, fiddle-fronted bodies seen on many American Bullies.
American Bully breeders that we've talked to have made a lot of claims. The ironic thing is that they have ALL quickly admitted there are MANY unethical, irresponsible bully style breeders out there who are giving the 'movement' a bad name. These same breeders have all insisted they were 'different'. Still, none of these breeders were able to offer proof of health certifications from organizations like OFA or PennHip, none of their dogs had legitimate all-breed titles (from AKC, UKC, ARBA, or any other legitimate all-breed registry), and while all of these breeders registered their dogs as American Pit Bull Terriers with the UKC, it was obvious they were blatantly snubbing their noses at the UKC standard for the breed – of course, because by definition, the American Bully does NOT conform to the APBT standard. If it did, it wouldn’t be an ‘American Bully’.
But confusingly, all of these breeders seemed to think of their dogs both as APBTs *and* as this supposedly new 'breed', the American Bully. No wonder the public is confused!"
