The American Bully Classes

The American Bully, a new breed of dog, was created by crossing American Pit Bulls with American Staffordshire Terriers to other bulldog-type breeds. They are loving, affectionate and loyal to their families, despite their rough exterior.

The American Bully was divided into 4 types before: Standard, Classic and XL. There are now five American Bully types with the Extreme being the most recent addition.

We’ll start talking about the various types and their characteristics. The quality of care given to a dog can have an impact on its lifespan. If dogs are given high-quality food and brought to the vet frequently, they may be able to live longer.

Although there is no set weight for any type of bully, it should be equal to their body size. An American Bully’s average weight is between 66 and 88 lb. These standard features are based on the American Bully Kennel Club.

1.) Standard Bully

  • Male Size 17″ – 20″ at withers
  • Women Size 16″ – 19″ at withers
  • Lifespan 10-12 years

In the 1990s, the Standard Bully was created as a buddy and show dog for the American Pit Bull Terrier.

It’s great with children because it is patient and doesn’t bite or snap.

The Standard Bully is loyal and affectionate to his friends and family, especially when they are friendly to him. Although it has an aggressive, rough appearance, the Standard Bully is extremely social and will bear friendly strangers. While it is acceptable to be defensive towards aggressive dogs and people, it should not be excessive.

2.) Classic Bully

  • Male Size 17″- 20″ at Withers
  • Female Size 16″- 19″ at Withers
  • Lifespan 10-12 years

This kind is an addition to the Standard Bully. It is distinguished by its body construction. The Classic Bully is smaller in body mass and has a shorter body frame. The Classic Bully does have some “bully” characteristics, but it is more similar to the American Staffordshire Terrier or the American Pit Bull Terrier.

The Classic Bully is similar to the Standard Bully. Both types are confident, outgoing and stable. They can bond well with their owners if they take good care of them. They are loyal, patient and eager to please their owners.

The Classic Bully, like the Standard, is socially and tolerant of both children and strangers. However, they are protective of their family members and property.

3.) XL Bully

  • Male Size 20″-23″ at Withers
  • Female Size 19″- 22″ at Withers
  • Lifespan 10-12 years

The XL Bully is an alteration to the Standard Bully. It has the same body structure as the Standard Bully however is larger and bulkier. The XL Bully weighs more than the Standard because it has more body weight. It is the same standard as the Standard type and must not be overstated.

This is the biggest American Bully type to date.

Because they are so large, it is difficult to breed XL Bullies that can meet the requirements for a Bully. This type of bully will not be able to stand out in a show or win a prize. Breeders of American bullies must be careful when choosing XL American Bullies to breed if they wish to succeed.

4.) Extreme Bully (Exotic Bully)

  • Size for Males: There is no official size
  • Size for Females: There is no official size
  • Lifespan 10-12 years

The Extreme Bully adds to the Standard Bully by having a heavier body and weight. It is larger than the standard bully and has thicker and heavier bones.

5.)  Pocket Bully

  • Male Size 14″-17″ at Withers
  • Female Size 13″-16″ at Withers
  • Lifespan 10-12 years

The Pocket Bully is an addition to the Standard type. Its height at maturity is what distinguishes it from its predecessor. Although it is the shortest Bully type, it is still muscular and heavy like all Bully types. This breed is not like other “pocket” and “toy” dogs.

This breed is for those who love American Bullies but prefer a smaller dog. This type is ideal for owners who have a limited amount of time to socialize, groom, exercise, and play with their dog.

American Bullies are easy to care for, making them a popular pet for beginners. Because they have short hair, their grooming needs are minimal.

Like all dogs, they need to have their nails clipped and their ears cleaned regularly. There is nothing unusual about their routine. There may be some variation in the amount of hair loss. Some American Bullies might shed their hair more often than others. In some cases, food could also reduce the amount of hair that is shed.

The American Bully breeds are all sweet-tempered, playful, affectionate, and protective. You will not be disappointed if you have one of these dogs as your pet. If you have more questions about American Bullies, send us a message!
