Typical Trademark Traits
The American Bully was created in the late 20th century. They are often mistaken as American Pit Bull Terriers, although they are the ancestors of the Bully, they do not conform to the Pit Bull breed type. The Bully came to be the breed it is today by combining various bull breed dogs. All of the positive characteristics of the breeds were kept, such as their loyalty and impressive physical attributes, and any aggressive behavior or gameness was bred out. This new breed still has the ancestry of the Pit Bull and many have to live with reputation of the breed, although they are not the same. The American Bully Breed Association and the American Bully Kennel Club do not accept an American Bully that shows any signs of aggression.
