The American bully is a breed that had been around for many years. American Bullies were officially recognized in 1990 as a variant of the American Pit Bull Terrier. The United Kennel Club (UKC) decided on July 15, 2013, that the American bully was distinct enough to be classified as a breed. The United Canine Association describes American bullies as happy, loyal and outgoing dogs. American bullies make great companions for the majority of people.


The XL American Bully typically has a strong, muscular build with a wide chest and large head. His body is well-proportioned, well-balanced, heavy-boned, and muscular. His head is large but not excessively so, and it is proportionate to his size. He has a shiny short coat. The American bully is active and agile, with a springy step, despite his muscular appearance.

Family Additions

The American Bully Kennel Club (ABKC) says that American bullies are wonderful family pets. These extra large pit bulls are exceptionally dedicated and loyal, eager to please their masters, and very trainable. With children, family, friends, and even complete strangers; they are kind and affectionate. They are extremely competent in protecting their homes and family since they are clever, stable, and vigilant guardians.

Space to Move

American bullies are active dogs who require regular exercise to stay healthy and fit as well as to avoid becoming bored. Bullies who become bored easily can start acting out, become disruptive, or become hyperactive. Make sure you have the time and space to exercise an American bully for at least 45 minutes every day. Although a sizable, gated yard is preferable, an American bully who lives in an apartment will be content as long as he goes for regular walks or visits to the dog park.
