The American Bully is a lovable household pet and a high-quality show dog valued for its pedigree. It is a designer dog, meaning that humans purposely bred it from several different breeds. So, what is the American Bully mixed with?
The American Bully is a mix of American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Terrier, and Bulldog. It’s one of many bully breeds that descend from the Ancient Greek dog known as the Molosser. That said, other bully breeds include the French Bulldog, Neopolitan Mastiff, and Cane Corso.
Read on to learn more about the American Bully’s pedigree, along with information about American Bully breeders.
What Is the American Bully’s Pedigree?
The American Bully is a designer breed created explicitly for owners who wish to carry on their pedigree. Initially, they were created by breeding the American Pit Bull Terrier with the Staffordshire Terrier and other Bulldog-type dogs. Although similar dogs have been around for centuries, the American Bully didn’t originate until the 1980s in the United States.
The oldest ancestor of the American Bully is the Molosser, a large dog from Ancient Greece. This dog was used to protect livestock and property, much like its descendants.
Are American Bullies Pit Bulls?
American Bullies are related to Pit Bulls but are a mix of several other breeds. However, they are both considered bully breeds. The full list of bully breeds registerable through the American Kennel Club is listed below.

What Are Bully Breeds and Where Do They Come From?
Bully breeds all come from Molosser ancestry. They were then mixed with other breeds, like the Old English Bulldog and the Mastiff. Unfortunately, these dogs were often used for unsavory purposes, like bull-baiting, which is where the name originated.
Bully breeds were brought to the United States in the early 20th century when they took on more professional purposes. For example, a Pitbull named Stubby was used as a war dog by the American military in World War I. He saved many lives in Germany and received high praise and decoration for his heroism upon his return.
This famous war hero inspired many people to adopt bully breeds as household pets, especially as bully breeds had starring roles in pro-American war propaganda during World War II. By the 1950s, bully breeds had become popular household dogs.
However, things changed in the 1980s, when gangs began using pit bulls and other bully breeds for protection and status symbols. These dogs were often abused and neglected or trained to be aggressive, making them more prone to attack.
Today, dog lovers are restoring bully breeds’ reputation, showing that any dog raised in a good home with love and affection can become gentle and kind. Bullies raised well are social and loyal, as well as intelligent and athletic, and there is no reason to be afraid of them as long as they are well-treated.
How American Bully Breeding Works
Now that the American Bully is an established breed, American Bullies are simply bred with one another to create the next generation. These typically come in four sizes: Pocket, Standard, Classic, and XL. Although all are American Bullies, they vary in size depending on which variation they are.
Finding an American Bully Breeder
If you’re looking to adopt an American Bully, it’s important that you find a reputable breeder to purchase from because many unethical breeders will sell low-quality dogs just to make quick money.
A good breeder will take good care of the dogs and ensure that their pedigree is up to standards.
Follow these guidelines, and you’ll be sure to come home with a well-mannered and healthy puppy.
- The breeder should allow you to visit either their home or kennel to meet at least one of the puppy’s parents. This gives you the chance to observe the parent’s temperament and appearance so that you can predict how your puppy will be as an adult. You can also check to make sure that the puppy lives in a clean, friendly environment.
- Notice how the puppies interact with the breeder. They should not shy away or show fear and should also be at least somewhat outgoing with strangers. This is a sign that the puppies have generally had good experiences interacting with people.
- Ensure that the breeder is also friendly with you, as a good breeder is a valuable resource as you get to know and raise your puppy. When your dog has a crisis, a good breeder can be a valuable person to turn to.
- If you’re looking for a toy-dog, the breeder should not market these as “teacup” varieties. This is not a recognized classification by the American Kennel Club. It is actually a sign that the dog is either a runt or unhealthy somehow or both.
- You should be asked to sign a contract stating that you agree to certain conditions of care for your new puppy and that if you are unable to care for the puppy for any reason, the breeder will take on responsibility for the dog.
- A responsible breeder will not allow you to take home the puppy until it’s reached 8 to 12 weeks in age. This gives the puppy time to socialize with its mother and littermates.
- Don’t be shy about asking questions. A good breeder will be open to answering any questions you have.
- A good breeder should be curious about you and your home and ask questions about what kind of environment the dog will be raised in. They’ll need to know that you’ve made adequate preparations for bringing a dog into your home.
The American Bully Daily published a list of eight reputable American Bully breeders within the United States, listed below:
- Kingpin Line is famous for its fierce-looking bully dogs with loving personalities. They have ethical breeding standards and a quality reputation to be counted on to provide suitable dogs for household settings.
- Kurupt Bloodline is known for creating extra-large bullies, including triple-size dogs. For this reason, they are sometimes considered not real American Bullies, but they are close relatives, at least.
- Razor’s Edge produces bullies that are active and athletic, yet gentle and calm. See the following video for a word from the owner of Razor’s Edge, Dave Wilson:
- Gottiline Pitbull Bloodline produces bulky Pitbulls and other bully dogs internationally and is so muscular that they have been used in weight pulling sports. They’ve distributed dogs in Canada, the Philippines, Japan, and China.
- Nakamoto Bullies has been breeding bully breeds since the early 1980s and has been breeding American Bullies more specifically since 2010. The business runs out of a 60-acre kennel in Southern California, which is open to visitors.
- Colby Pitbull Bloodline produces XL and XXL bullies and has been in the bully business for over 100 years. These dogs are particularly agile and fierce and do not make for good family pets. However, they are very active and sporty and can make for good companions for some people.
- Golden Line produces bullies in a wide range of sizes, from pocket to XL. These dogs are calm and friendly and are great lap dogs and family pets.
- TheRemyline Bloodline includes dogs descended from the famous Remy Martin, a stud that has sired over a thousand offspring.
Why Are American Bullies So Expensive?
An American Bully can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000, depending on whether you purchase a show-quality dog. The price of American Bully is largely related to how rare the parent dogs are.
The more the parents conform to the breed’s standards, the more rare and valuable they are for breeding.
American Bullies descended from the strong Molosser, a dog from Ancient Greece. The American Bully is one of many bully breeds descended from the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Staffordshire Terrier, and several other Bulldog-type dogs.

The American Bully needs an owner who is firm, but calm, confident and consistent. They need to know what is expected of them; rules to follow and limits to what they are and are not allowed to do. The objective in training and successfully keeping this dog is to achieve pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in their pack. When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader; lines are clearly defined. You and all other humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. That is the only way your relationship can be a success.

Beware: some Bully breeders give their dogs steroids to produce a large muscular body. When the drugs are stopped the dog's body shrinks back down to a normal size, but leaves the dog with many health issues including organ and joint problems. Sometimes these drugs get passed from mother to puppy. If you are in the market to adopt a Bully be sure to find a drug- free breeder.

The smooth, short-haired coat is easy to groom. Brush on a regular basis with a firm bristle brush, and bathe or dry shampoo as necessary. A rub with a piece of toweling or chamois will make the coat gleam. This breed is an average shedder.
The American Bully breed was established in the mid-1990s with the purpose of creating the ultimate family companion. The American Bully was created through years of selective breeding by combining the desired traits of the UKC American Pit Bull Terrier and the AKC American Staffordshire Terrier. Some lines have added other bully breeds into the mix and sometimes non bully breeds. The American Bully's origins can be seen both on the East and West Coast of the United States, primarily in Virginia and Los Angeles, California and is spreading to all parts of the U.S. Today the American Bully can also be seen in Europe and Asia. The American Bully, also called the Bully Pit, Bullypit and the Bully Pitbull, is often confused with the American Pitbull Terrier but is clearly a different breed.

Mia the 7-week-old American Bully puppy bred by Dazzling Bullies Kennels—"Mia's daddy is named Ghost, also shown on this page. In a lot of ways she reminds me of Spike the Bulldog. She is affectionate and comical with a lot of character. A big personality in such a little body. She is possibly the most intelligent dog I have yet to own. Even with all of that affection and character she still shows signs of being a good guard dog. The other day she heard a strange noise and ran to the door letting out a bark that sounded like a big dog. After discovering what the noise really was, one of the kids playing with a squeaky toy, she walked away to do other things. Even at 7 weeks a tad of a guard instinct came out. This is her in her roly-poly pose."
