Sometimes dog owners are surprised to learn their dog is an American Bully mix. This purebred breed is gaining popularity, but many have never heard of it.
Established in the United States in the 80s, the American Bully is a UKC-recognized breed of dog with several size and type variants. While the foundational stock differs between lines, they can have ancestry from American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Bulldog, French Bulldog, Neapolitan Mastiff, and other breeds.
However, in the same way American Cocker Spaniels had English Cocker Spaniels in their founding stock but are now distinct breeds, American Bullies are genetically distinct from the bully breeds they’re related to.
