The American Bully is a relatively new breed of dog that was developed in the United States during the 1980s and 1990s. It is often mistaken for the American Pit Bull Terrier, though it is a distinct breed.
The American Bully was developed from several different breeds, including the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the English Bulldog, and the Olde English Bulldogge, among others. This combination has resulted in a dog that is physically powerful, with a muscular build, broad head, and short, glossy coat.
The American Bully is known for its friendly and affectionate nature, as well as its strong loyalty to its family. It is generally good with children and other pets, though it may be aggressive towards other dogs if not properly socialized. It is also known for its intelligence and trainability, though it may be stubborn at times.
