10 Types of American Bully Bloodlines (With Pictures)

The American Bully is an emerging breed officially recognized by the American Bully Kennel Club in 2004 and the United Kennel Club in 2013. These incredible companion dogs were developed by breeding American Staffordshire Terriers and American Pit Bulls with Bulldog-related breeds. While they may look menacing, American Bully pups are quite the opposite. Their demeanor is relatively calm, they show great loyalty to their families, and they are usually good around children.

What Are Bloodlines?

With the emergence of the American Bully Breed, several bloodlines are growing in popularity. Bloodlines are families of dogs that have been bred to ensure all the best aspects of the breed are intact and pure. Dogs from strong bloodlines are often sold for more money, but for most breeders, money isn’t the issue. Breeders want the health and purity of their bloodlines to continue for years to come.

Below, we’ll examine 10 types of American Bully bloodlines. These bloodlines strive to create one of the strongest breeds possible and hope to show the world how incredible the American Bully truly is.

The 10 American Bully Bloodlines

1. The Razor’s Edge Bloodline

Created by Dave Wilson, The Razor’s Edge Bloodline is one of the most well-known Bully breeds. This bloodline focuses more on the Bully line instead of the Terrier, resulting in very strong, thick, and muscular dogs. Kennels that specialize in XL and XXL Bullies often breed this bloodline.

2. Gottiline Pitbull Bloodline

Created by Richard Barajas, this bloodline came into existence when he bought a Bully named the Notorious Juan Gotti. Dogs from this bloodline are known for their great engagement in sports, where they pull heavy weights. Their looks can be quite terrifying, but their demeanor is calm and friendly.

3. Remyline Bloodline

This bloodline was created by Fabian Chichester in 2004. It is known for its high quality, and the first stud was named Remy. This line is created from the same male breed, which gives the Remyline dogs consistent appearances.

4. Colby Pitbull Bloodline

The Colby Pitbull bloodline is over 100 years old and is known for strong, sporty dogs that are fierce competitors. Unfortunately, these dogs also have bad temperaments, which makes them less than ideal for homes.

5. Bully Camp Line

The Bully Camp line is famous for its top dog, Mr. Miagi. Thanks to Mr. Miagi, most dogs bred from this bloodline show perfect features and excellent body structure. This makes the Bully Camp line one of the most sought-after.

6. Golden Line Bloodline

The Golden Line Bullies encompass most Bully types. This bloodline is famous for its well-mannered dogs with short frames, thick bones, and wide builds. Dogs from this line are great for homes and families, and they offer some of the best looks in the Bully breeds.

7. Kingpin Line

For decades, the Kingpin line has been famous for the demeanor of the animals it produces. These Bullies are said to be perfect around children due to their calmness, which means they are less likely to be aggressive. Most owners of dogs in this bloodline say they love interactions with people.

8. Edge of Gottiline

The Edge of Gottiline is known for making micro-sized Bullies for the world to love. With loveable demeanors, these small Bullies are wide-chested with big heads and even bigger hearts. This bloodline was intended for people who want the look of a Bully without the size.

9. Nakamoto Bullies

The Nakamoto line was created in 2010 and specializes in exotic Bullies. This kennel only breeds using veterinarian-approved and certified methods. The dogs are of the highest quality and sought after all over the world.

10. Kurupt Bloodline

The Kurupt line is one of the newer to emerge in popularity. Known for their freakishly large size, Kurupt Bullies look menacing but have calm dispositions and loving mannerisms. This bloodline is considered ethical, but some breeders don’t consider them part of the American Bully breed.

The 5 Classes of the American Bully

When this breed was initially formed, the American Bully had four basic types: Classic, Standard, XL, and Pocket. Since these early beginnings, a new type, Extreme, has been added, making five breed types. Let’s take a quick look at each one.

1. Standard

This Bully was officially born in the 1990s as the show dog version of an American Pit Bull Terrier. Standard Bullies are muscular and thick. Their bodies are compact, with broad chests and large heads, giving them the look of powerful dogs. The Standard is a very affectionate dog that is great for companionship. Families with Standard Bullies should keep their eyes open for injuries, however, as these dogs have high tolerances for pain.

2. Classic

The Classic Bully is similar to the Standard, except for a leaner build. This gives them a more traditional look and more agility than the Standard. Their characteristics are very similar to those of the Standard. They are great with their families, friendly to strangers, and in most situations, great with children.

3. XL

The XL is a modified version of the Standard. They are stronger and taller than the Standards, which makes them the biggest of the Bully breeds. Breeding XL Bullies can be tricky since meeting the requirements is complicated, considering the overall size of these dogs.

4. Pocket

The Pocket Bully is similar to the Standard and other Bully types except for their height. While shorter, the Pocket Bully still carries the weight and muscular build of the others. The Pocket Bully was originally bred for pet owners who wanted a Bully breed but in a compact version.

5. Extreme

Extreme Bullies have higher rear ends and tighter lips than the other lines. They are incredibly muscular and compact and have large skulls.


Final Thoughts

There are several types of American Bully bloodlines, and each has unique characteristics. With the popularity of Bully breeds on the rise, more potential pet owners are hoping to provide them with forever homes. As always, when seeking an American Bully, ensure the breeder uses ethical methods and maintains the health of their dogs. This will ensure your American Bully lives a long and happy life.
