What is the American Bully mixed with?
Is it an actual registered breed or is it a mutt?

The American Bully is Not a breed. They are 100% mutts. They are mixes of different bully breeds, a lot of the time poorly bred. They are bred by backyard breeders a lot who breed solely for looks and "thickness and stockiness" which they end up looking like overly muscled hippo dogs. Then they falsely register them as American Pit Bull Terriers (the Only pit bull) and sell them for a ton of money to ignorant people. They can be variations of mixes of American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Pit Bull Terriers, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentino, Presa Canario, Cane Corso, even Mastiff can be found in these dogs muddled bloodlines. Because like I said, they are bred for size, shape, and color. Not to a correct standard or for health and temperament usually. Some of them end up looking like Extremely poorly bred English Bulldogs! It's a fad that will either die out or get turned into it's own breed finally if people can stop ruining them.

The American Bully is also sometimes called the Bullypit.
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. It is often confused with the American Pitbull Terrier but is clearly a different breed.
It is a mutt.

The American Bully does have standards like any other breed that true lovers of the breed that want the best dog strive to get with the puppies. The only reason that people register the American Bully with UKC as the American Pit Bull Terrier is because the registration wont let a true American Bully have its registration switched to American Bully from APBT until it is 1 year old. ABKC has different standards of size standard, classic, pocket, extreme and XL. This is because there are different styles of the breed they go for. And you must send in the papers from UKC or other to ABKC for them to then give you paperwork from there. Depending on the style a bit of a different bully type was mixed in to get the look that they want as a base for the style. There are set rules of conformation as well with other breeds.
The American Bully IS A BREED. Every dog was made from two different dogs. This is a newer breed. Look at it this way. The initial breeding was for the best traits in the Am Staff and the APBT. People hear Pit Bull and half the time freak out or think your dog is going to maul them to death. Millions of APBT's are euthanized in shelters or cities because of the name. Because of people trying to better two breeds and give it a different look it is in fact helping people that want that APBT look but in a different package and name.
A very respected bully breeder published this for fellow breeders of these amazing dogs....
Dearest Pit bull and Amstaff Owners,
From a picture ...how can you say ...we are destroying the breed... These are American Bullies... Not pit bulls....yes, they share similar ancestries with the pit bulls and the amstaffs but other then names on paper ...it is true a lot of the qualities that made the pit bull popular are lost. However, we are not destroying your beloved breed because most of us come from a pit bull, amstaff background too. If anything we are saving the breed. Pit bulls are killed by the hundreds if not thousands at shelters because their owners no longer have a use for them and people over breed them looking to bank on their popularity. The Pit bull was a dog built to take down big game ... But was popularized once they become a fighting sport dogs... These days fighting dogs are shunned upon and highly against the law in many countries and only a small population of people still use them as hunting dogs because of their aggressive nature towards other dogs. What i am say is ..the pit bull has lost its purpose in this society and we the as American Bully breeders are giving this misunderstood breed a new home ...a new name...a new look..and a new purpose. Dnt be too quick to judge something in which you have no knowledge of. Is the American Bully perfect...by all means ...No..but it is a work in progress. Are we advising people to abandon their traditional pit bulls for the american bully? NO .. If you truly are passionate about the traditional pit bull... Instead of using your energy attacking Bully owners ...you should turn to your fellow Pit bull owners and figure out a new purpose for them that will help save them from ending up at local shelters and eventually being killed.
Thanks for your time...
I am not a little punk doing this for fun. I am a dog advocate pioneering an alternative to change how the world views the Pit bull...
P.S. dogs at these caliber go for a very high price tag ...ensuring that they have the best chance at receiving a good life.

Where it came from was the English Bulldog which is really a Pug Bulldog cross, and not a true working Bulldog. In fact, the working English Bulldog became extinct in the UK at the turn of the 19th century.
Fortunately he survived in America, especially in the mountainous regions of the rural south. There he was saved from extinction because he still had work to do. Hogs and cattle were allowed to free range in this rugged terrain where fences were impossible and could only be caught with hardy Style English Bulldogs.
Throughout the south and the southwest, Bulldogs were also used as guard dogs. In the 19th century and earlier there are numerous historical records of large plantation Bulldogs or estate Bulldogs that were kept in yards sometimes on chains and used on human bad guys.
Some of the more common names were Old English White, White English, Swamp Bulldog, Backwoods Bulldog, English Pit, Old Country White and many others.
Toward the end of the 1960s, the last remnants of the Old time working English Bulldogs were disappearing from the rural south.
Fortunately at this time a few dedicated Bulldog enthusiasts made a concerted effort to locate some of the last of the hill Bulldogs and begin efforts to breed them, preserve them and foster a public awareness so their breeding programs could continue.
Because of their work, the Bulldog, the breed that had toughed it out for so long against so many adversaries, could survive.
To say that today's American Bulldog is a direct descendant of the original working English Bulldog is not to say that a small percentage of other breeds have not been recently added, mostly in the 1970s when the AB was being rebuilt.
The Mastiff/Bull breeds used in such outcrosses were descended in part from the working English Bulldog, Alaunt and other ancient mastiffs Due to the low number of Old English Whites left, some breed out-crossing was inevitable to insure enough genetic diversity.
It is currently not a registered breed.
Why would some idiot vote me down for being factually correct in the history of this breed.
All dogs were mutts at one time!Source(s): I am a Dog Behaviourist with an interest in old breeds

Show bred American Pit Bull Terriers and/or American Staffordshire Terriers as the base.Mixed with various Bulldog and/or Mastiff breeds,depending on bloodline or kennel.There is no one true formula,just whatever the breeder wants to throw together in his mutts to obtain the look they desire...
It has its own kennel club with several different types of the same breed:
Motivated by money,accompanied by complaints of APBT owners,the UKC has recognized the Bully as its own breed: http://www.ukcdogs.com/Web.nsf/Breeds/Terrier/Amer...
In reality,they are mutts.Source(s): APBT owner

The AmBully is an APBT/AmStaff cross.
Often falsely registered as one of those breeds.
Basically, breeders take out-of-standard APBT or AmStaffs that are registered and breed them.
It is a mutt, a fad mutt. There is zero effort within the AmBully "kennel club" to make them a legitimate and healthy breed. Its all about money, breeding ridiculous looking dogs as a 'penis extension' for men with masculinity issues. Big muscly dogs that look tough.
the 'breed' is a mess. No set standard, no effort to carefully breed for specific traits. Bad health, deformed limbs. Its about pumping out puppies and selling them with hype.
