My Conformation Abkc Bully

Discussion in 'American Bully Pictures' started by Seattle's Best Pits, Sep 28, 2008.

  1. This is Missy. She was a product of a breeding that was well planned out. She was exactly what w were looking for. She is little. Height/weight proportioned and a little ball of fire.

  3. American Bully Breed Standard

    General Impression

    The American Bully should give the impression of great strength for its size. A medium size dog with a muscular body. Agile and graceful in its movement, keenly alive to his surroundings. He should be stocky, not long-legged or racy in outline. His courage is proverbial.

    Medium length, deep through, broad skull, very pronounced cheek muscles, distinct stop, and high set ears.
    Ears – Natural or Cropped.
    Eyes - All colors except albinism. Eye shape would be round to oval, low down in skull and set far apart.
    Muzzle - Medium length rounded on upper side or slightly squared to fall away abruptly below eyes. Jaws well defined. Under jaw to be strong and have biting power. Lips close and even, some looseness accepted, but not preferred. Upper teeth to meet tightly outside lower teeth in front or scissor bite accepted. Nose all colors acceptable.

    Heavy, slightly arched, tapering from shoulders to back of skull. No looseness of skin. Medium length.

    Strong and muscular with blades wide and sloping.

    Fairly short. Slight sloping from withers to rump or straight accepted with gentle short slope at rump to base of tail. Slightly higher rears accepted, but not encouraged.

    Well-sprung ribs, deep in rear and all ribs close together. Forelegs set rather wide apart to permit chest development. Chest should be deep and broad.

    Short in comparison to size, low set, tapering to a fine point; not curled. Not docked.

    Front legs- should be straight a slight turning outwards of the feet is accepted but not desired, large or round bones, pastern upright. No resemblance of bend in front.
    Hindquarters- well-muscled, let down at hocks, turning neither in nor out.
    Feet- of moderate size, well-arched and compact.
    Gait- should be springy with drive off the rear.

    Short, close, stiff to the touch, and glossy.

    All colors and patterns are permissible expect the color merle.

    Height and weight should be in proportion. A height of about 18 to 21 inches at shoulders for the male and 17 to 20 inches for the female is to be considered preferable. There is no particular weight for the breed.

    Faults to be penalized are: kinked or knotted tails, pink eyes and any form of albinism, tail too long or curled, undershot or overshot mouths, severe turned fronts, and aggressive behavior towards animals and humans.

    Do american bully breeders do OFA for hips and elbows?
  12. bahamutt99

    I find it interesting that they borrowed so heavily from the AmStaff standard in writing that one. And some of the things that are so prevalent in bullies -- like dewlap -- they've written in as non-preferred. They also need to correct the bit about any color eyes if they're going to discourage merle. Broken or marble eyes are symptomatic of merle.
  13. MR.Bonez

    MR.Bonez Little Dog

    yeah all they state about eyes is albinism, so i think they should add broken/marble too, but ya know i have yet to see a merle bully, and IMO i dont even think the merle dogs i have seen look full blooded anything, lol, even the ones they try and pass off as APBTs just dont have anything IMO that screams out pit bull. If people are really down for those type dogs they should also just call it another breed.

    If i remember correctly i think the Merle has already been proven to carry strong Catahula (sorry about spelling) Leapord Dog genes?

    Also about them taking a lot from the Am Staff standards, i think its b/c this is where they come from, the dog they took the most after. Am Bullies (true Am bullies) started by crossing AKC/UKC Am Staffs and UKC APBTS. Now you have careless breeders who are also mixing in Mastiff and Eng Bulldogs to get a little more "Freakier" look to their dogs but if those dogs carry any strong triats from them they will not fit the ABKC standard. (such as loose skin, bowed out legs, easty westy ankles) those should not be traits of a true AM. Bully, and i would say if you see that in your dog you should know their may be a STRONG possibility that your bully is not just Am Staff and APBT.

    Not many at all. There are a few kennels that ofa hearts, hips, elbows, patellas. on all of their dogs.

    Theres one kennel that breeds mostly RE who wouldn't breed to any females unless their hips and hearts were ofa clear. He was even willing to put all money used for the testing towards the stud fee.

    Since then no one has studded to any of his males, where as before they had many stud inquires.

    Mr. B, I've seen merle bullies. I couldn't tell you now where I saw them, but on the 'net somewhere. As for merle in general, some will tell you it's an introduced color, and some will tell you that it's not. It's still debated. I personally believe the geneticists that say it's not a color inherent in the breed.

    man people really work at breeding these dogs fast, lol i wish they would slow down and try to work on bettering what they got instead of trying to keep making "NEW" things. I am with you, i think it was introduced and i dont think i will ever beleive otherwise.
