In most movies, Pitbulls have always been portrayed as the strong, aggressive dog that chases the good guy. But in real life, many people keep these dogs as family pets and guard dogs. In recent years, the common Pitbull has been interbred with a few different dog breeds to create a new type of dog called the American Bully.
Bullies have very well defined, straight legs that are muscular and powerful. They have high set ears, which are usually cropped, and a broad shoulder. They are short, like Bulldogs, and have big heads like Pitbulls. Their neck is strong and thick, tapering from their shoulders to their heads, with no saggy skin. Jaws are well defined and square, with a scissor or even bite. Tails are usually undocked, medium length and a small curl. Corkscrew and curly tails are flaws. The American Bully has short and smooth coat, which comes in different colors, from blue to spotted black and fawn.
According to most American Bully owners and breeders, dog aggression and gameness is very minimal, contrary to what the media and Hollywood would have you believe. While these dogs are said to have good temperament, there have been known attacks by these dogs. Proper handling, training and socialization is imperative to ensure your Bully is friendly around other people and animals.
